Whatever happen to "Layman's Terms"? Why is the FCC website so difficult to understand?
I want to an asset to my community by applying myself and obtaining a Ham license but I got a headache after one hour on your site and never finding what I was looking for. Here is a simply question:How much for a lifetime Ham Radio operators license? After one hour,I still couldn't find the answer.
The FCC has made this information difficult to find, as it is neither "mobile" nor "broadband" which are its principal buzzwords today. To answer your question, Amateur Radio licenses are granted for ten year terms (not lifetime). The license itself is free, though the test examiners may charge money and the FCC is allowed to charge for some services such as vanity callsigns. Visit www.w5yi.org for the meaningful information that you hoped to find onthe FCC site.
This is a good question. After one hour,I couldn't find the answer either. I guess I need to get another degree in maybe Law or become a rocket scientist and I might have a fair chance but my money is on the brainiac who built this mess. I guess it wasn't designed for the general public to understand and that's why Ham Radio is a dying art if you don't get fee to death beforehand.
