Consideration of the draft Permit Conditions

An amateur service is understood as a radio communication service for the purpose of self-education…., this is how all Permit conditions, including the current one, begin proposal. Indeed?

Overview of connections since 2016 do 2021

The current DX operation is dominated by the FT8 mode (according to Clublog statistics, about 67% QSO is in this mode). In automatic mode, the computer makes the connections for you. You can easily leave the station somewhere in the corner and in the evening you will see what stations have been added to the log. As long as the propagation conditions are good, 100W is enough to connect all over the world.

So it is illusory, that "N class operator, who wishes to carry out tests of the special professional competence of an operator of Class E amateur stations must have completed at least 500 connection…". He didn't have to make a single connection, all done by computer.

Let's ask ourselves a question - what kind of self-education is this? Brings operator skill? Technical?

Well, now let's ask ourselves a question - won't a Class N radio amateur ask himself?: "Why try for Extra, 100W is enough for me all over the world, the class won't bring me new bands or any super benefits".

On the other hand, there is no definition of the number of power elements of the transmitter in the proposal. Why? The advantages and disadvantages of multibeaming are known. In the Czech Republic, decree no. 156/2005 mentioned: "Performances specified in paragraphs 2 a 3 they must not be exceeded in the sum of the powers of individual broadcasting devices during their simultaneous operation on one frequency and modulated from one source."

According to a report on hamradio.sk, the Slovak Association of Radio Amateurs (SZR) submitted his proposal already in 2014. It wouldn't be fair, to document, which concerns all radio amateurs had the opportunity to express themselves? It is not even in the resolution of the SZR congress http://www.szr.sk/szr/zjazdy/8/uznesenie.htm (2014) a http://www.szr.sk/szr/zjazdy/9/uznesenie.htm (2018), however, you can find it in the reports from the SZR presidium meeting http://www.hamradio.sk/clenske/zapisy.htm Although the last one is from the year 2018, but if you go through older, you can find mentions of work on the Permitting Conditions. It is up to the members of the SZR, to express their agreement or disagreement with the way the SZR Presidium acts.

I consider the new draft of the Permit Conditions to be incorrect and I do not agree with it.

On the other hand, for me, he is like Nkára who does SSB addition exclusively 20 so you won't have to list this 40 m band very beneficial. And the new licensing conditions will only contribute to my improvement and self-education.

won't be. None of the young people know Morse code anymore, as CW drops out, SSB starts to drop out too. In order to keep subsidies from the state, they will give out concessions to CBckars and PMRkars

“Kecanie”, t.j. use of muzzle, that is, on KV, as a rule, SSB, is one of the traditional attributes of radio, so I'm not really worried about SSB dropping out. You usually have the ability to use the muzzle in standard equipment, whereas the need to master CW was once a painfully felt obstacle.
And if someone is technically incapable, may have trouble connecting the radio to the computer at all.
It's interesting, that almost no one here sees the penetration and relative simplicity of e.g. FT8 (which is still just a chirp over SSB :D) as a motivating factor. It is motivating to cover all of Europe in a weekend with FT8. While a beginner would make a similar haul on SSB, it would take longer or. DLLHOOOO (but probably shorter, like on the CW with the whole torture of learning morse code included). After such a simple run-in, he just says to himself “I'll try something harder” (and finds JS8Call :D) and in this way he can work his way to basically any mode in the order of the difficulty he feels (which is usually subjective). If you put at the beginning “unbeatable” an obstacle, so it discourages a part of the interested parties right away and another part during the preparation for the exams and in the end they never make any connection. Is this, what you want (to have, for example, a pleasant feeling of some kind “exclusivity”)? Looking at the age averages of radio amateurs and the most popular section of their media (SK) – the proliferation of which is itself a PR fail – i don't feel, that this is the right tendency.

Will be. Because there are still enough countries in the EU, where acceptance of CEPT Novice permits is at freezing point (Ireland, Greece) and in most others the allocation is cut. And people tend to travel and would also like to have a radio.
I wouldn't even want to be Czech. Accumulated bingo: not just trimmed (the classics would say “traditional”) allocation, but also 10 W max. At the same time, it is QRP “not very suitable mod” for a beginner, because it demotivates (not everyone takes it as a challenge, like me – and that too essentially out of compulsion, because I will not place the antenna on the home QTH KV, so I run for the hills, understandably, not with a 5 kilo radio). Either they yell at him, or he will not cry himself. Even though, pravda, compared to such portos, where are you still after the first license level 2 you haven't broadcasted in years (!!!) it's paradise.
