    The FCC is preparing to implement the $35 application fee for amateur radio very soon.

    In this video I explain some recent developments including a meeting the FCC is having with the VECs to discuss implementation.

    I also talk about a recent email that has been going around where people jumped the gun and thought that the fee was going to be implemented on July 15 (spoiler alert: it is not)

    This is such crap. Slippery slope to yearly fees.

    If you can't tax it just put a fee on it! :D

    But, how could the FCC possibly provide us with the infrastructure and enforcement needed for the Amateur Service without money to pay for it?

    glad the FCC is not collecting, yet.

    the fees were instituted by Congress. We should work with them to umdo it, not get mad at federal agencies who are following the law.

    They made a big deal about eliminating them years ago, and now want them back!

    It’s still cheaper than fishin and hunting license.
    I’m just glad I completed my license before it became implemented.
    Thanks N2RJ Ria. :)
