I screwed the pooch and let my license expire and didn't realize it until I was beyond the "grace period".   I haven't been active for a long time and just plain let it slip my mind until I saw the license in the desk drawer.

To put into perspective, my GMRS license was $70 (for the same 10 years). If $50 means we're paying our own way, and not being subsidized by non-HAM taxpayers, I'm going to take the unpopular view and be for it.

I think it's reasonable.  No disagreement from me, at $5/year.

Ditto.  A 10 year license for $50 is still a bargain.

Agreed. The license fee increase is likely overdue.

But its not needed!  There is virtually no cost to renew a license, its all done electronically without even a license being sent.  Nothing more than yet another tax in the form of a fee.
