Yes, 5 wpm for receiving for General or Extra. Only 3 lcasses now, Tech, with no code and limited frequencies, General all all bands but within limits on bands, need 5 wpm, the Extra, with all parts, all bands. No additional code requirements. I got my General back in the 13 wpm days, upgraded to Extra just as they dropped the 20 WPM, had just gotten proficient and they dropped it to 13.
NW Fiddlers... would not mind being there as well. For Jim there is the Podunk Festival in his backyard. Jamming all over plus the main stage. Saw Vassar Clements there the summer before he passed on. Many great bands there. Jamming is awesome till the wee hours.
Thgen my all time favorite it paians me to miss, GreyFox in NY. What a festival, jamming everywherre, workshops witht eh bands, the main stage, the dance tent, the vendors, the food... Best way to spend 5 days in July in the northeast.
