FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1B11)

Q) What emission modes are permitted in the mode-restricted sub-bands at 50.0 to 50.1 MHz and 144.0 to 144.1 MHz?

A) CW only.

NJ2X Note:
CW is synonymous with Morse code.  Morse code is a method of transmitting textual information as a series of on-off "continuous wave" tones.  Continuous wave refers to the fact that the tone does not change frequency or amplitude.

Technician license privileges allow operating CW on HF (80m, 40m, 15m, and 10m), VHF (6m and 2m), and UHF (222 MHz, 420 MHz, 902 MHz, and 1240 MHz).  Technician license holders will do well to learn Morse code.
