How long and what did you have to accomplish to get your licence?I have gotten my ham license recently, KM6GCQ here hello everyone!, and I joined an off road group where some of the members use ham handsets and don't have licenses.
I do my due diligence and tell them they need to have it, telling them how simple and cheap it is, but I am wondering some things.
1. Can I get fined for talking to them? I have been on one trip with them and they only use it to tell when vehicles are stopped, they don't chat on them.
2. Do people here refuse to talk to people who don't have licenses?
I had mine back in the 80s but lost interest (got married had a kid)
Thought about doing it all over again.
