    I prefer to do everything on line with instant gratification :)
    I could not even tell you the last time I had to mail something...

    It's not a divisive comment? :D

    I don't think it has as much to do with "going green" as is does with "saving a lot of money." ;)

    I much prefer being able to renew my license and just print it out, not mail some form off and wait for a license to come back. ;)

    On the postal service, not on the FCC.

    Not much of one. If you need to renew your license and can't use or don't want to use a computer, there are people you can call of the phone (even a landline phone), who will do it for you. For a fee. ;)

    Or maybe they are asking: "Ham radio is supposedly so high-tech these days, but to get a license you have to fill out a paper form with a ballpoint pen and mail it somewhere?!" ;)

    Nice insult there, bud! I'm an "old fart" and your comment is one of the reasons I don't want some young people in the hobby. Privileged, snowflakes, arrogant.
    We "old farts" would be happy to put up our knowledge of ham radio up against yours any day.

    There are many 'no license' frequencies. Pai likes no licenses... Makes enforcement easier.

    I'm happy to renew online, but still want a printed copy.

    Umm you can’t even get a tin police badge much less a toy in a cereal box these days!
