Question #23: How hard is it to get a license to transmit amateur radio? How much does it cost?
Asked by Jesse (10.0.0.x) on May 21 2022, 9:49 PM

Response: It takes about 1-2 weeks to study the questions. There are three difficulty levels that determine your rank as an amateur radio operator. The passing score is forgiving so you can get some wrong. It's $15. It allows you to transmit over the radio pretty far away depending on your equipment and antenna. You don't need a license to receive radio signals. You can receive using a device such as the HackRF software-defined radio.
