    Heh. I'm 46. My ticket expired about fifteen years ago as there was no way to renew it as I live in a foriegn country. I suppose I could get a British license... which I looked into when I wanted to fly balloons to the edge of space.

    Unfortunately, in the UK, it's against regs to operate a HAM radio on an "aircraft" and a weather balloon qualifies as an aircraft.

    I was going to just break the law and use a modified PMR radio. I figurered if it was thousands of feet over head, you'd need very little power for it to be heard for a very long distance. RL keeps getting in the way though.

    37 here. Mid-generation? I'm only into it theoretically yet, though. I have yet to get my license and hardware.

    And you're asking this question on a BBS?

    My 15 year old nephew is a ham, but he's not a BBS user. For a better answer to this question ask on /r/amateurradio

    What does my age have to do with my interest in ham radio?

    I'm confused ;-(

    I'm 32 as well. Only became licensed last year, should have done it years ago. Better late than never I suppose!
