Why bother?  It is my understanding that soon all Advanced operators 
will be automatically upgraded to Extra.

The real question is.... what is the point of Extra Class?  Why not just 
downgrade us to Advanced?  The whole program is totally stupid these days.

As with all hobbies, this one thrives on magazines, advertising, 
equipment sales and job programs for promoters.  The best interests of 
the hobbiest are not a very high priority.
