I've received several corrections and wish to publically admit that I was
Novices have always been segregated into a frequency getto. I was
referring to a quote in "Your Novice Accent" an article by Keith S.
Williams, W6DTY, which I remembered incorrectly. The quote:
"In pre-novice days an amatuer launched forth in the main stream and in
very short order lost his beginner's accent and was taken for a native."
I remembered the gist of the quote, and somehow equivocated the change to
incentive licensing - forgetting entirely the "pre-novice" part. This was
incorrect. Mea cupla.
