okay, explain to me why you need a general license to receive a signal in 
10m. anyone can listen to anything they want (except cell phones) without 
having any type of license at all (it is called short wave listener...swl). i think 
you are a bit confused on this one. there is no 10m uplink to rs12 that is 
active now. so whatever your license is, it has no bearing on 10m and rs12.
