There are a lot of parallels between new crossbow technology and Ham Radio CW (Morse Code). The old timers really fought hard against eliminating the Morse Code requirement to get a Ham Radio license. This was crazy because the hobby was dying off as the old times died off. When the CW requirement was eliminated for some licenses the Ham Radio hobby growth took off. Now the new technology enables hams to talk to the space station, bounce signals off the moon, etc. It’s a hobby now being joined by young people interested in the new communication modes. CW is still being used and is going to be around a long time.
