The logo modification is a precursor to my feelings represented in a rare (of late) political opinion post from myself:
We're In Deep Trouble

Thanks for clearing that up.


I am glad that SLAYER69 was wrong, again.

Translation: I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY KNOW THE FULL MORSE CODE AND NOT SIMPLY SOS? I LEARNED IN BOY SCOUTS AND STILL CAN DECIPHER MOST, BUT NOT AT 20 WORDS PER MINUTE. DO YOU STILL HAVE TO KNOW CODE TO GET A HAM LICENSE?

No, I don't but I should learn. I just used a translation website.

I would give you a star if one was available. Technology rules. I should have sent my message in semaphore.

Here ya go, I've got plenty............( sorry, they're "below the line")


Anyway, I can read Morse code. I learned it while doing a brief stint in the Salvation Army. Oddly, these signals are in Spanish. But that's OK. I can read that too. Albondigas, yes it definitely says albondigas......meatballs something. I am so sure, I'd stake my credibility on it. Or maybe I'm just hungry.

No, it is no longer a requirement for a HAM license in the US. Other countries many vary.

lol, now it's yellow and upside down.


and now it has a flag!


yikes!

Right, it's on a rotation ... it's freaking me out.


And before some start complaining ...


It [the American flag] is flown upside down only as a distress signal.

When someone is in distress, is your first impulse to hurt or to help?

The answer to that question determines the character of our community.

Long ago, in a time that now seems far away, I was an "Extra" class ham... focusing mostly on CW (morse code). I was getting to the point of a reliable 40 wpm, at that level you stop hearing the individual beeps of the letters, and start recognizing the sounds of full words and abbreviations.

Sadly... that skill has fallen.

Just chiming in to say the new ATS logo rotation is very cool.
