Wow - I can't imagine quitting the hobby because someone didn't return a
set of tapes I'd loaned out! I also don't condone actions like pinning
coax, but that's all I'll say on the topic, I'll keep my comments

Are you aware that the code requirements have been removed?

If you do want to practice, there are both CD images and MP3 files
online that can be downloaded for free. There are also a number of
programs that can be used to generate your own audio files, or even to
send code directly from the computer in real time.

I can dig up some links if you are interested.
