The Changing Operating Classes
Over the past year the Technician class has increased at an average rate
of 13/day.
As the defacto entrylevel license in ham radio, I would expect it to
increase the most of all the license classes.
The Tech Plus class has decreased at an average rate of 27/day.
The Novice class has decreased at an average rate of 9/day.
The Advanced class has decreased at an average rate of 12/day.
Since the FCC is no longer issuing any of these licenses, it is
mathematically impossible for them to "increase" at all. The very best they
could do would be to maintain their exact numbers, assuming a 100% renewal
rate and a 0% upgrade rate out of these classes into others.
The General class has increased at an average rate of 7/day.
The Extra class has increased at an average rate of 6/day.
Or, a combined rate of 13/day, the same daily rate of increase in the
Technician class license. An interesting statistical fluke?
