    I've had a Ham license for about 20 years. I originally got the license so that I could fly radio control model airplanes on 6 meters. I have a Futaba 53.5 Mhz radio setup that works beautifully, although I haven't flown for a long time.

    One thing that upset me was the fact that I got demoted by the FCC recently. I originally earned my Technician Plus rating with code and written examination. Now, with the recent changes, I've been
    demoted to a standard Technician, a class that can be earned without code. I wonder what I did?
    Oh well, it makes as much sense as anything else the "gummint" does these days.

    AA4CB here. Extra Class. I was the last Extra class group in South Carolina to be test by the FCC. ( Actually had to go to Charlotte N.C, to be tested ) Just after I got my Extra Class the Amateur Radio Operators took over testing from the FCC.

    I also have a First Class FCC Commercial license and was tested by the Norfolk field office. I don't mess with radios much anymore. I had rather weld and play on the computer.

    If I had know I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.

    Hi
    I'm been a Ham for 10 years now, not as active as I want to be, just got tried of calling out and nobody responds. I must have a poor radio voice.
