An amateur radio license is much more than just a transmitting
license. In most cases it permits the holder to experiment, build his
own equipment etc ...
This in contradiction to most other transmitting licenses such as CB,
PMR446 and even (most) "commercial" maritime and aeronautical licenses.

Quoting mal hamilton <[email protected]>:
I always thought an amateur radio licence was a transmitting licence,
otherwise why bother, no licence is required to receive.

I'm sorry Mal, but just when did it become a given that experimentation
required one to radiate a signal? My licence permits me to do many
things but nowhere do I read an instruction to "transmit". Or perhaps
you believe that I should only have an "old fashioned" artificial
I'm getting rather fed up with this dialogue which hardly even
qualifies as sensible debate.

Theere seems to be a lot of opinions and
rheotric here on the reflector about LF and MF but I have never heard
these stations actually transmitting on the bands, so I would guess
are not in a position to express an opinion.
Surely I am not the only one capable of building
and operating a CW station in the UK/EU on 136 and 500 khz.
