http://hamgallery.com/qsl/country/USA/Maryland/fcc.htm There's a picture of the FCC notice that basically cancelled all amateur radio licenses and thus transmissions for the duration of WWII. I know the President can invoke his "war powers" today and do something similar. Anyone remember this event in 1942? I think it's outrageous the FCC did that. I mean..really now. If there were spies that notice wasn't going to stop them from transmitting. But, it did take away a comforting or relaxing activity of lots of people. I wonder how hams of today would react if the government revokes all radio licenses during WWIII.
