I think a lot of hams don't realise how fortunate they are if their administration provides essentially open access to the allocated spectrum with little fear or concern. Examine in detail the tribulations of being a ham in many less advanced countries and you might be shocked. Here in Thailand an unlicensed radio is classified in the same league as an unlicensed firearm, access to spectrum is significantly restricted with no access above 3.6MHz on 80m, no 60m, no 6m, no 70cm. No access to many u-wave bands. Irregular testing for HF licenses. Importation of equipment requires onerous licensing and type approval testing for every item, not just a sample. Things are changing here thanks to some excellent local ham activity but it is a slow process. It only took almost 30 years to gain access to WARC 1979 authorised bands. In many countries amateur radio is far from encouraged and sometimes only barely tolerated. Well done to the 3V8's it can't have been easy and I do hope to hear them on, there will be much demand for them.
