  That reminds me of something I read a while back that I thought was 
interesting.  It explained how the Technician class license was originally 
intended for radio and electronic experimenters.  A "problem" arose in that 
some Techs were communicating with each other on the air for conversations 
sake.  Some in the Ham community thought that should be illegal.  I guess the 
communicators won.  :)

I guess it was like Geoff was saying even back then.  More members - more $$$.
