How many Ham Radio licenses are there?


Not too many people know that in April 2000, some changes have been made in the number of license classes.  This signifies that the license classes dropped from six to the current three.  Here are the main types of license: the Technician License, the General License, the Amateur Extra License.  What is to know about these three types of license?  Keep in mind that the Technician class license is the entry-level license of choice for most new ham radio operators.  Moreover, the second type of license grants some operating privileges on all Amateur Radio bands and all operating modes.
