Got my Novice license 51 years ago. Now an Extra Class with a 1st Class Commercial F.C.C. with ship radar endorsement. None on board yet but looking into Icom 802.

H'mmmm, you might want to ask the FCC to correct their database then, they list you as having a GROL with radar.

Grol

You are right. I am so used to saying !st Class as This IS WHAT IT WAS WHEN I FIRST RECEIVED IT... BEFORE THE F.C.C. changed it to GROL. So I stand corrected. Does it really matter?? I can still be an engineer at a commercial station as long as the F.C.C. is notified.

It does to the guys who earned a First Class Radiotelegraph license. In the marine world when someone says they have a first class radio ticket it doesn't mean 'phone.

And in the maritime world, a GROL without a GMDSS ticket isn't worth much. If you want to operate a marine MF/HF radio onboard, a restricted ticket is good enough.

As far as broadcast stations are concerned, no license has been required since 1992 and by that time only a Restricted permit was required anyway.

Sorry, only the brasspounders get bragging rights these days and only a handful of them ever find a job since GMDSS replaced them.

I did my research and it seems to have got your blood pressure up.

I'm not the one who showed up trying to impress the masses by claiming to have a license that doesn't exist anymore and ain't worth much anyway.
