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.
Jus open a bottle of 40 year old blend cost $400
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.
Still cheaper than in 1970:
New or renewed license: $9 ($60.09 in 2019 dollars)
Modified license: $4 ($26.71)
Special callsign: $25 ($166.92)
Folks spend thousands on radios and complain about a $35 fee?
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...
FCC= FOREVER COLLECTING CASH !!! For this new fee the Fed's should clean up the bands !!! like 70cm & 2mtr repeaters ! & 40 & 80 while there at it then I will PAY to PLAY ! 73 Phil..
P.S. there goes my ARRL membership ! Phil..
