    Ok, the speaker schedule's been posted. I'm talking Sunday morning, which should be fine for a noon test time.

    How are the rest of you who said you could VE set for time?

      My extra class VE paperwork arrived today. Don't know my schedule yet.

      I think I was just a standby in any case.

            So what's the difference between Ham & FCC license. It's been quite a long time for me. Missed my FCC license by like 2 or 3 questions I was sooooo pissed.

            Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

              No difference, the FCC issues amateur radio licenses. The testing is run by the ARRL.

                Are you refering to the the "Radiotelephone" Licenses? Class 1 to 3, if I recall correctly...

                There's a lot of crossover, but there are differences between the Amateur and the Radiotelephone licenses.

                  Ham is just a slang term for an amateur radio operator, who is licensed by the FCC.

                    Well yeah, it depends which licenses he's talking about.

                      Based on my better half's description of today's delivered mail, it appears my VE paperwork will have arrived, finally.

                          Indeed, the mail I was expecting was there. I got my official certificate (and badge!) so I'm good to go.

                            What does each level of passed exam get me "john law" wise regarding the HAM tests?

                            For example, if I pass the first exam, I can then legally war drive, hack wifi, spoof packets, legally jam (raspberry) law enforcment signals?

                            What higer level in the law do I get with each passed exam?

                              If you really want to take the exams, just go to

                              http://www.eham.net/exams/

                              and take the exams over and over until you score 90% and above. These are real test questions, and if you pass them consistently you will pass the exams. This way you won't have to burn CON time studying. (The above link is free, btw.)
