    I sincerely apologize for repeating a phrase which seems to offend so many, so greatly. I work in law enforcement and we make jokes among our selves which are much crasser, in order to stay sane while simultaneously dealing with the horrors to which we're exposed on an almost daily basis. I am well-aquainted with 'dialing it down' when dropping the magazine and unchambering my weapon after I get out of the car. I suppose I took a liberty I shouldn't have, but I never intended to disrespect my fellow bretheren in the hobby and stand corrected as to my ill spoken attempt at humor.

    When are we all going to figure out that the FCC has already, due to budget, made up its mind that paper is dead. What you think does not matter. Don’t waste any heart beats getting up set because we really don’t matter. I renewed my license on line and downloaded the pdf. Cost nothing. I am 68 and if I can do it anyone can. Just remember, as far as the FCC is concerned, you are no bigger than a pimple on a blue whale’s ass.

    Exactly. For a yearly fee of $50, they'll renew for free. :)

    CERTAINLY electronic filing for renewals should be accomplished ASAP as it just makes sense. New licenses, resulting from testing, might be a caution; especially in places such as L.A. where licenses are sold to non qualified persons.

    “In an effort to save the planet, ULS will be shutting down entirely in 2024 to save electricity.” (Just a joke )

    So, let me get this straight...Someone said the OF's that use modes like JT65, FT8, WSPR, etc let alone DMR, D-Star and CM4 with all the software, pi stars, routers, etc. are going to encounter issues figuring out how to print a PDF file? o_Oo_Oo_O

    I do that for driver's licenses and $100 bills. Works for me.
