History has shown that older systems will stay around if they are
still useful to the ham community. CW is a perfect example, and AM
still exists in niches. Similarly, analog SSB and FM will continue
to exist and be used on air for decades. Furthermore, the next
generation of radios are likely to be software defined, so there will
be no problems maintaining backwards compatibility with the modes we
enjoy today. If the radio doesn't have the mode we want, we will be
able to either download a firmware upgrade or Google for the source
code we need and install it ourselves.
