Hi all,
I am having problems finding out if the code is the same as the code
used for the practice sessions is the same to be used for the code proficienty is that the same as you send in for the one to be
checked ???? I tried to call the guy in charge of the certificating program, but he has not called me back.

Thanks

The Code used is the International Morse Code. It is the same code as practice sessions and the ARRL Qualifying Runs (proficiency). 99.9 percent of the operators heard on-air in CW mode use this code. There may be still a few old brass pounders out there who do the American Morse code, which is a holdover from railroad telegraphy, but perfectly legal to use. .
