    Done, filed my complaint. The FCC should be looking at ways
    to incentivize citizens to become HAM’s not the opposite by
    overly expensive transactions. I figure there’s less than
    100,000 license transactions/yr or $5MM in revenue from us.
    By commercial standards that’s outrageously expensive for a
    service that is predominately automated — yikes.
