    seen thats the new fcc fee.bet the testers get none of it so if i tested id give $15 to the testers lot more eagerly than id give $35 to fcc. we will pay up.
    now that fcc is gettin all that $$$ how about them doin their jobs n clean up the trash we witness on the radio waves?they keep selling spectrums off n we gonna be crowded up like sardines in a tin.
    my opinion too.my views might get diffrent milage in others eyes but hey thaz it

    I pay 50 Euro's a year for my license, as it seems we need to pay for the costs of the A.T. ( our version of FCC) just another hurdle to take, but then i pay for my firearm license as well, as i do for road tax, municipal tax, health insurance, and 19% tax on my pensions i have.
    Sh*t happens, pay up, or go without....
    Part of life i guess, still have decent income and live nicely.

    i owned some big trucks n i guess after all the fees ive paid i get like oh wait more loss of my money. as far as fees its not going to kill me but they spent on updating system to improve and now its taking money to improve.less actual employees n charge us. then they keep selling off spectrums of our bands to cell phone companys. we lost analog tv to that reason. then we get digital which is ok if you live close to towers.out where i live we get signal then it breaks n might be back in few seconds n might be all day off. before we could view about any channel within 75 mile radius ok on analog
    out of curiousity what is the firearm license fee cost? is it a set fee or more if you own 2 or more?

    I pay for yearly renewal of the license and 5 Euro for each of my weapons in the license.
    Total is about 40 Euro each year.
    4 guns here reloading them so also license to have gunpowder for reloading at home.
    ( Desert Eagle .357M, S&W 686 .357M, US M1 Carbine .30, Walther GSP target pistol .22.)
    I have a 4 foot satellite motorised dish here so with 33 satellites to chose from enough choice in UHD and HD.
    And cable as well, for internet telly and phone.
    I gave up my drivers license for trucks, never used it anymore, and you need costly 5 year medical checks to have it renewed.
    Did 6 years driving trucks through the EU long time back.
    Before the iron wall fell so no need to keep it.
    Just normal car drivers license is enough.
    Not complaining good pension paid in since my 15th, working and going to school then, and bought in a few pensions when i made good money so i get by quite well.
    Everything costs, we know that...

    “Use-specific fees”, sound okay, in principle.

    But we are long past the era of honest accounting for the use of ANY tax money.

    There are FAR too many instances of bond monies and taxes NOT used for the reasons levied.

    Do I much care about $35. No, not really (and this is how they get away with it).

    I just did my renewal on the website and I was expecting it to ask me to pay a fee for the renewal as I thought that it applies to renewals now as well but it didn't ask me to do any payment.

    By preference I do exams for free. When I do A.A.R.L. exams I have to charge. I'd much rather do exams for the https://www.laurelvec.com/
    Just another reason I'm not fond of the A.A.R.L.
    As for license fees providing $$ for enforcement?
    Please tell me you are not that deluded, please...
