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.
