I am not interested in becoming a VE, so it is irrelevant to me whether or not I can give exams. There is a local club that has a good number of VEs, and they are doing a fine job of providing licensing exam opportunities.

I still consider myself capable of being a useful resource even without an Extra class license. For example, I have helped dozens of high school students get their ham licenses through the radio club I've sponsored at the school where I teach for more than two decades. I have also given seminars for ZS on ham radio for years at ZombieCon.

I like having an Advanced class license because they don't issue them anymore and as time goes on there will be fewer and fewer of us... it is something of a conversation starter when I talk to hams who have been licensed recently enough that they were not aware that advanced class licenses even existed.

The extra 25 kHz is not THAT big of a motivator to me. I could pass the test tomorrow if I ever decided to.

Dah Di Dah, you've been here a week and all you've done is talk trash. Please consider this an official warning from the moderators to stop. If you don't have anything constructive to add to the forums, please consider not posting.
