I am not licensed, nor i use radios for communication, but i do like listening to radio frequencies, via Internet or a RTLSDR setup. All of
my antennas are DIY stuff and mostly i listen to 2m and 70cm. If i had a call sign, that would be SV1XQT! :)
I did try once to get a license, but then i realized that to do "real" stuff, you need a class b license and a lot of money :) so i gave up. I don't regret as, today you can hear amateur frequencies, via internet sites, with out spending a cent :)
Out of interest what are the steps required there and the approximate costs?
Also, if you take first the class A license and then the class B, is
50+50 euros :) So many people, take the class B with the first try.
In my case, i had to travel about 100Km to take the exam and also loose a whole work day, from my job, which at the time was impossible due to work issues.
The call signs beginning with SV or SY are from Greece.. .so if you
listen someone with that prefix, you have reached Greece :)
