      I never got code because it would take me 15mins to get to where I could copy it. That doesn't work for a test.

      Not really. I certainly would not wear the strip. I was certified at 5 WPM for my Novice in 1970, but couldn't make 13 WPM two years later, so I was out of the hobby until a few years ago. I haven't done any Morse for forty years.


      The requirements are clear. You demonstrate your fluency in order to wear the patch. You do not rely on some certification from the distant past.

      I would say that any one who got their license prior to the no-code regulation would qualify as long as they were Tech-Plus or better.
      Your license would be your proof.

      I would say that this is done on the honor system. The patch talks about 5 wpm, I'm fine with around 25 wpm (I've been active on CW for a long time), so I will get the patch. If someone ever calls me to help with translating a morse code conversation, I'll be able to do it at speeds well above the patch requirement.
