Re: license privileges



This is not how I interpreted this at all.  I interpreted
it as (1)  You took the old general class theory test and (2) you took the 5
wpm code test.  This has
been determined by the FCC to be sufficient
to be granted general class privileges.

Please let me know if this is not correct.  My wife
(N2HPE) has applied for "grandfathering"
to general since she has been a code passed
tech forever.  We went to some trouble to get
all of the supporting documentation we believed
was required.
