ARLB024 Deadline is October 31 to file comments in FCC "Morse code"
proceeding

With just a few days to go before the filing deadline, more than
2600 comments have been filed in response to the FCC "Morse code"
Notice of Proposed Rule Making and Order (NPRM&O) in WT Docket
05-235. The NPRM&O has proposed to do away with the 5 WPM Morse code
requirement for all license classes. It also denied several
proposals to create a new entry-level license class.

The closing date for comments is Monday, October 31. Reply comments
are due Monday, November 14.

To file on-line comments on the FCC NPRM&O in WT Docket 05-235 or to

Comment Filing System (ECFS), http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/ecfs/. In the
