    They are not paying the old rate or if they had remained the new rate so the loss in real dollars would be 5000 x the new rate.

    That is not the way I see it. The likely would have continued to pay the old $39 rate. That is the only part that was LOST. They decided to not pay the new $49 rate. If the ARRL raised the dues to $1,000 - you could not say they just lost $1,000 for anyone who decided not to pay it. I am not an economics major, but it still seems clear to me.

    A lot of foreign hams hold US licenses to. Be interesting to see how many of those are actually non citizens. I will soon hold a US license, using it as a means to get a VK equivalent. Turns out, its easier and more convenient to sit an ARRL exam session in VK than it is to get a VK exam session. Go figure.

    In U.S. terms, it sounds like a slacker. Get all you can with the least amount of effort. Kind of like our street people in the U.S. looking for a handout. I think the FCC should change the rules to prohibit foreign citizens from taking advantage of us.

    A whole bunch of vk3's got their extra last weekend, one was a mate of mine, using it to upgrade from Standard to Advanced in VK. Plus a lot of people are obtaining a US license for operating while overseas. Its often easier to get reciprocal in places with a US license than it is with your own countries license. Sounds crazy i know, but its actually a thing, i know a whole bunch of JA's who hold US licenses for that reason. I would be interested to know how many of those 750K licenses are actually non citizens. There is probably no real way to find out. But i figure it might be more than we might assume.

    Easier easier, easier. Why don't you work your arses off like the rest of us? That sounds like a 'welfare ham' to me. Disgusting.

    You really need to let it go OM. We get it, you do not like me, so if you want to hurl insults at me, do so in PM, this just looks petty and childish.
