Hello all and thank you for this resource and forum. After years of procrastination I finally got my Tech license last april. In the folllowing months I began studying for my General and took the test in December of 2017 I passed easily and was looking forward to advancing my radio skill set and experience. Low and behold the FCC has recently chosen to restrict access to people who have a felony conviction on their record. As a result, my application for an upgrade was dismissed... I’m 50 years old and haven’t been in an ounce of trouble since the late 80’s, when I managed to aquire a DUI that was also a felony. Was it wrong? Yup. Has it been close to 30, spotless years since? Yup. I’m not sure why the FCC has chosen to enact the restriction, and I guess I should be happy that I have my Tech, but the fact remains that I’m being punished for a nearly 30 year old crime. I’m not looking for answers, just venting a little. Thanks for the ear and the forum to vent in.
