      Thanks last nite I went a local meeting on PSK31, which was my first and only so far to see it in action, later on after the meeting I asked a question via the web group, If for example I am on PSK and I come accross a Ham who is non-english and I send a message to him, will he be able to read my message in his language or in mine only, the comment came back that he would not see it in his language,but still in english.

      I recall a story of a Ham who was rag chewing with a Ham in <for example germany> and he chatted with this guy everyday, then finally the other party invited him to his place to meet, he did so, when he arrived the party couldn't speak a word of english, and he couldn't speak the other persons language, for the next 4 hours they chatted/rag chewed on the other persons Code keyer.

      Wonder where the PSK group would think towards that part, its just like when they came out with Echo Link, how many years before some even accepted it as to many it wasn't real radio, just internet connected.

      Weird world we live in now and seems like a step in the worng direction..

      but I still think the code should still be taught to the many out
      there. I approached a site mentioning how in the old days you could
      approach a Elmer to learn the code and the technicial portions on the
      Radio, but when I mentioned where's the Elmer's when you ask about
      projects like PSK they had no answer. I laughed as I put out a
      comment on it and hasd only 1 reply on the forum.
