    Oh, I get it .... that's supposed to be some kind of put-down. LOL - I had to do a little research on the latest natterings from the mommy's basement set.

    Really? that's you're reply....."ok Boomer" .....sadness

    As to the topic, I was ok with A fee just not 50$. The 35$ mark is a little higher than I feel it should be but its better than 50$. Now if only we could get this fee to actually go to the FCC and not their overlords that would be great.

    Mandated by Congress, signed by the President in 2017. That was the FCC's reasoning. I don't totally buy it but see where they are coming from.

    Be careful. I once defined this term for someone who asked on these forums, and my post was deleted. I should stress that I was not actually using the phrase.

    I wish there weren't a fee, but I will pay it.

    So the rationale is that seeing as we get screwed over by high taxes, then we shouldn't mind paying more? I guess we get the government that we deserve.

    I think we should buckle our chin straps - the government we 'deserve' is likely going to be coming up with more creative ways to fail at paying down the increasing interest on the national debt - nevermind the debt itself. I'm just hoping that this will not become a trend in amateur radio to try and squeeze more water from our rock for various and sundry fees and 'services.'

    I wasn't sure what the term meant ... I had to look it up, a testimony to its importance.
