    Don't let the old guard discourage you! What they fail to recognise is that competence to drive a car or practice medicine is critical whereas ham radio is of no importance whatsoever... You've passed your exams - now enjoy!

    Congratulations! I took twice as long, but a death in the family delayed it a month.

    SAT work!

    Congratulations ! Don't let the old guys discourage you, if they had their way, like the "good old days", the amateur service would be dying, not growing. From an old guy but a relatively new ham.

    I disagree with that statement, the Governments around the world would not issue licenses for this Service.

    Just look at all the knowledge people have gained through the art of radio, and how it has advanced the modern world.

    This new Extra class is learning technical things/ which is good for the world.

    They issue licences for things like GMRS and CB (well, ok, that has gone licence free) - which are of no importance whatsoever. I was responding to a post suggesting that issuing a ham radio licence to people with minimal technical knowledge was as irresponsible as issuing a driving licence to someone who could not drive or a licence to practice medicine to someone with no knowledge of medicine. That is patently stupid - nobody is going to die or be seriously injured by incompetent operation of a ham radio rig...
