Last day to file re: FCC $50 proposed Fee on applications?
« on: November 16, 2020, 1858 UTC »
I was reminded of the following:

This is a reminder that today is the last day to file comments about the FCC increasing "application fees" to 50.00 each application.
A new ham could possibly up to $200.00 (50 for Tech, 50 for General, 50 Extra, and 50 if you'd like a Vanity Call.) and this does not include the VE charges to take the test(s).

Please make your filling today

PS forward this to anyone you think that hasn't entered their comment..

Since I did electrical training, for being an electrician, decades ago, I thought that I could always fall-back on that. Besides, what other field can you use trade terms like nipples, hickeys, and making male / female connections, without getting into trouble at work?
