Quote from: Jason on June 26, 2022, 06:39:49 PMDo they still require you to know the morse code to get a license today? Even 10 words a minute seems complicated with the average word length (6 letters I recall). You'd have to remember at least 36 alphanumeric characters and transmit 3 dots/dashes per second. Achievable but I imagine for a beginner it'd be like me trying to do 10 push-ups daily.

The Feds can also come into your house and take away your equipment, if you are doing something not allowed by your licence.

I'd be curious, just what you'd have to do to have the Feds swoop in with their black copters and take away your equipment. I imagine just the possibility keeps everyone on good behaviour, though. From what I understand, it's not that cheap.
