    It changed, FCC put hams in their place and stripped them from Service and downgraded to hobby.

    That should take the weight off of some people's shoulders and lighten the mood around here. :)

    I am happy it was reduced. I am unhappy the feds came up with this in the first place considering what LITTLE they do of their job.

    No one said anything about high taxes or getting screwed. All i said is paying taxes.
    Everyone's a socialist and like the idea of free until it's their turn to pay the tab...
