How about 40wpm and an MSEE for a 30 day non-renewable novice ticket?
Stations must be able to distinguish b's from 6's and v's from 4's.

Digital Equipment maintains a World Wide Web search engine called Alta 
Vista. According to PC Magazine, Alta Vista's "Web crawler" looks at 
2-1/2 MILLION PAGES A DAY -- Usenet news groups also -- and indexes 
*every single word* it finds.

Perhaps before you query 1000 Points of Light on a reflector you could 
point your browser to

and have it look for the person's callsign. You'll see a link to a page 
or newsgroup message, and can most likely find his/her address from 
there. Try your own call first  . . . you might be very surprised at what 
you find.

Food for thought: There's no band plan on 160--yet we seem to manage
not to run amuck there...CW , phone and AM (etc.), get along pretty well.

Not sure about the no-coder driving this IARU matter either--thought it was 
ZL proposal.
