One Man's Attempt To Save Morse Code - Clarification

Then he was badly misrepresented in the article.

They presented him, and quite frankly our hobby, as
a contrast between noisy voice ops and classy CW ops.

I apologize if my reaction to the article seemed critical
of your friend Chuck - I was viewing it through the lens
of prospective new Hams and visualizing them turning away
from the hobby shaking their heads after the reading.

Perhaps he should ask them for a second interview and
a follow-up with a second "The rest of the story"?

Or maybe the ARRL, which I gather is the Ham organization
he quit after the FCC decided to no longer mandate Morse
Code, would consider telling the rest of his story in QST?

Sorry again for the misunderstanding.  It is a shame that
so-called "journalists" can be so sloppy.
