I got my Novice Class license when I was a kid and haven't used any ham radio equipment for 20+ years.
But I got to thinking... assuming I wish to remain legal and (probably) not harassed by the "authorities", would holding a license help at all?

Suppose I got an "Amateur Extra Class" license. Is there any AM or FM band on which I would then be legally allowed to transmit?

New member here, but I can answer this one. I was first licensed in '67 and currently hold the Extra. No Amateur license authorizes transmissions on any commercial radio band. Amateur licensees are also prohibited from broadcasting (one-way transmissions), even on frequencies authorized for the Amateur Radio service.


You don't need a license, you need a radio.  You can plug it in, you can push a button, you can talk.  . . . hence you've now become a full fledged Amateur Radio Operator.  Funny, some people use a piece of paper and think it gives them power. . . . the real power lies in yourself.

Now if you'll all excuse me I'm going to talk to my friends in China who are gearing up to take over lol

lol no I find you quite amusing.  I'm the village idiot yet your telling people that "buying American" will save us all.

you're a moron.  It isn't about nationalism, it's about getting the best deal for yourself.  China already owns us, they can come take their property whenever they want.  This includes your fuckin' house.

Only an idiot would buy or not buy products based on them being from their 'home country'.   If American products were just as good, and CHEAPER than Chinese. . . then I'd buy them.  They're not, so I don't.
