I tend to agree with those opinions which say there is no ham without CW. While I am typing this my radio is parked on 7.015 a CW mode. What do I listen to ? A group of Indonesian pirates rudely making noise on the ham band. Like those many others who imitate the Indonesians pirates, I would put these people under the same roofs. One loves the other hoping to get favor and the other loves their friends for some unknown reason. The CBers in USA are known to use vulgar words while driving trucks. Generally they are not hams and do not know Morse codes.
People just like to be grand. They can't be radio announcer or a dee-jay, so they would use ham gear to announce things on the air. They want to be hams but could not learn CW, so they attack CW. They want to hams but could not learn electronics, so they use the ham bands and talk like a ham. I want to be Professor but I am too stupid, so I use the free blog writting nonsense thinking I am one.
Many American hams who became ham without CW are training themselves in CW and want to be a real ham, the full pledge ham. But as always, we can call ourselves with anything we want and other people can call use by anything they want. The split in sects is something inevitable. They want to call themselves ham, they can do so. So they have pride with the very long mobile antenna on their cars.
People like me do not even recognize the word silent key to be given to any dead man. Silent key is a word to be given to those who have been using CW key once in a while. That is the symbol of ham radio. Ham is about dit and dah. You don't agree with me ? I won't cast you aside. I am not forcing you to agree with me. Neither can anyone took my belief away from my mind. It's not a ham without CW. Which CBer use Morse on 27 MHZ ? On 10 meters ? Yes, there are many hams who work on 10 meters. If you don't want to associate No-CW guys with CBers theen No-CWer can be associate with the Car Parking Attendant or The Majlis Bandaran people, and now even the nasi lemak seller is using ham gear to communicate with their home. But the kings are pirates who pride themselves as some great guys.
Or else open a new world for the No-CW guys. Give some grand name to it and allow them to roam the world as well with due respect. Do away with RAE and Morse but don't call them ham. Any suggestion for some glamour call ?

TOP RANKING CW MAN
In my mind the best CW man in Malaysia is 9M2ZN. My judgment is based on the errorless high speed sending and his ability to copy at the speed of about 50 wpm. I would consider Mazwan, a teacher, a new ham as compared to those those old timers. Other flawless CW ham is 9M2YP, Yee, whom I have not heard for a very long time. My assessment on Yee is incomplete because I have not heard Yee on high speed Morse. Our legend Eshee has not been on the band for quite a long time. I have never seen him working the 45-60 wpm Morse yet.
New hams who passed the CW are scared to come on. My suspicion is they do not have confidence in r besteading even the 12 wpm. 9M2MGL is disappearing both on SSB and CW. So is 9M2AGC who could go more than 18 wpm. At the moment only 9M2GET seem dare to venture DXing even with this mode.
How do I know whether a person really knows CW ? Simple. A question asked never get any answer though it is repeated several time. CW is not merely sending. You need to know what the other side is sending too. You can always say QRS or 'PSE SLOW DOWN' when you can't copy.
Never try to send fast just because you can do so, if you can't copy at the speed you are sending. Otherwise even without any QRM or QRN you are going to say QRM QRM or QSB QSB. Usuall people would know that you can't copy not because of the QSB, QRN or QRM. So send slow Morse. There will be people coming back to your slow call.
It is good to find a sparring partner. I prefer to practice high speed Morse with Mazwan, not with foreign station. Mazwan already knows my weaknesses and strength. I can't send fast though how hard I tried due to my slow muscle response. They call it neuromuscular co-ordination. Ageing is one of the factors. Exercises can help to speed it up. But 9M2ZN could send a perfect message in plain language while CW rag chewing. And I am wrong to put Mazwan on the top. Malaysia's best is 9M2ZN.
Hams should be able to quickly reply after the transmission is passed. They should try not to write message and send by reading it. Don't let the other side wait. Some professionals need to write first because they were trained that way, to ensure they send the right message. Because we are not originally from police, military or ship to shore people, then we must learn to see the words in our mind. True that the clarity of the spelling is vital. Long words with complicated spelling do give problem. At time we only write these words for reference.
CW skill cannot be required by reading or talking. But by practicing.
Practice makes perfect.
