'[OT]: Which Amateur Radio License for 2.4gHz ?'
2001\04\03@234238 by Brian Reed

Just looking for a few tips about good info on the web towards an
Amateur Radio License.  I see Form 605 at FCC, and it looks like
605D is the section I need to use, but I could be mistaken.  Also,
I see 3 classes of cert (Technician, General, Extra) and I dunno
which I need.

What I wish to put up is a video (hopefully audio too) transmitter
to go up to a mile (line of sight) with good reliability.  Like the
2.4 gHz transmitter on http://www.parallax.com w/1000mW output.
Other suggestions (re: band or equipment) appreciated.

Any.

1W should be ok with decent gain antennas on each end.
FSTV is pretty thirsty.

Brian,

For the purpose you suggest here, the TECHNICIAN class ios sufficient.
However, with just a bit more effort, you can learn 5WPM morse code
and some more in depth theory, and the the EXTRA class.  This give you
access to any and all priveleges that the FCC allows an Amateur.
I myself started out many many years ago as a Technician class and
have moved up to Extra.  I also bought an ICOM 706 MKIIG 100W
tranceiver that covers all HF bands along with 6 meters and 2 meters,
and 70 CM (440 Mhz).  I can't wait to get it on the air.  Anyway, good luck
and if you need answers to any of your questions, let me know.  I'd be
happy to help if I can.

Any of the above, but a Tech won't require a Morse code test -- unless
they've changed that too.  last I remember hearing, Tech had no code
requirement still, and General/Extra was down to 5WPM.  Tech gives you all
privileges on all bands above 30MHz.

70cm (~426MHz) amateur equipment is easy to come by, as are good antennas.
Antennas are fairly easy to build.  902-925, 1.2 and 2.4G are also usable.

Do bear in mind that anyone can and will see/hear what you transmit, and
any use for anything commercial is strictly verboten (and seriously
frowned upon by fellow hams, too).

<rant>
It's a bloody shame that there is no middle ground between ham use, which
is cheap, easy and no-hassle but STRICTLY noncommercial, and a full-blown
business band application.  Ever try to even *talk* to a flippin'
frequency coordinator like NABER about using UHF or VHF for data? It's
like you just landed from another planet.  The only thing bigger than the
piles of red tape are the piles of money you have to have to buy enough
favors to get somethig in place.  And put an antenna on a building?
Start writing checks and sucking up to bureaucrats, maybe by the time you
DIE of old age you'll get approval.
</rant>

There -- did that sound a trifle frustrated?  I once had this crazy idea
of using VHF packet radio at 1200bps to send my field techs service call
information while they were on the road over a 50-mile radius, like any
ham can do with a couple hundred bucks' worth (or less) of hardware.  Ha!
Fat chance.  Would have been nice, but it was apparent from the outset I
was at the bottom of the hill, if you get my meaning.
