Default Re: Amateur radio

The license cost $6 in the states.

There is a 2 year grace period if after it expires you have the option to renew.

In the meantime remember that it isn't illegal to use amatuer radio to render help for someone who's property or life is in peril. There still, so far, exists a few laws of common sense. If you want a hobby get licensed, if you want communications for emergencies don't let a license stop that from happening.

We must remember where the federal government is moving. And it is to centralize control. So anything federal is going to get more and more controlled, but that does not make it right, moral, or constitutional.

In the meantime navigate the landmines and stay in one piece.
