Only to licensed radio operators.

It’s a bummer, since I find it very difficult to get a license; not because the tests are difficult, but because test locations, at least in Europe, seem very sparse and the schedules impractical for people with a job.


The easiest WAY to get one (if you have a JOB) is to visit…
The price is ridiculous.
I didn’t want to wait the week, nor pay SHIPPING so I got THREE.
But I still entered.
