    Could not get full operators' license (did not know Morse Code to pass that portion of Radio Operators' Test). Did repairs on old military radios and such as electronics was more my bag. My brother in law was a Radio Operator on a ship, and could key using a "Bug" at maybe 60-70WPM with no errors, later stationed in Alaska.
