  1. I'm curious what people think. Should there be an option/method available, either in times like Covid-19, or any other time, during which we should be giving hopeful amateur radio operators the option of testing online? I believe that the Anchorage Amateur Radio Club VEC (https://kl7aa.org/vec/) is doing it. What are your thoughts?
  2. Or at least, the FCC. After nearly 50 years of not collecting fees, and now that the licensing system is automated, and now the FCC no longer has to pay for examiners, and now that the FCC incurs very little expense to oversee the Amateur Radio Service, it's decided it needs to collect a $35 license fee. I suppose I'm not surprised, but I am concerned. You see, radio frequencies are a commodity and hams have enjoyed a free ride because the FCC has valued our contributions to public service and the research and development of new technologies. But now, apparently, its attitude has changed. Thirty-five bucks for a ten year license is not that big a deal for most of us. Yet what is the likelihood that, in a few years, it becomes $35/10year/band usage? For those of us who only operate on one or two bands, that'd probably still be no big deal. But I'm just wondering how such a slippery slope could affect Amateur Radio. You can read Part 97 in its entirety and never find the word "hobby." We are a service - the FCC defines us as such. Perhaps we should remind the Commission of that fact.
