These are the numbers of current, unexpired
amateur radio licenses held by individuals
on the stated dates, and the percentage of
the total number of active licenses that
class contains:

As of May 14, 2000:

Novice - 49,329 (7.3%)
Technician - 205,394 (30.4%)
Technician Plus - 128,860 (19.1%)
General - 112,677 (16.7%)
Advanced - 99,782 (14.8%)
Extra - 78,750 (11.7%)

Total Tech/TechPlus - 334,254 (49.5%)

Total General/Advanced/Extra - 291,209 (43.2%)

Total all classes - 674,792

As of December 2, 2006:

Novice - 23,801 (3.6%) [decrease of 25,528]
Technician - 288,922 (44.0%) [increase of 83,528]
Technician Plus - 33,644 (5.1%) [decrease of 95,216]
General - 131,409 (20.0%) [increase of 18,732]
Advanced - 70,183 (10.7%) [decrease of 29,599]
Extra - 108,154 (16.5%) [increase of 29,404]

(percentages may not add up to exactly 100.0% due to rounding)

Total Tech/TechPlus - 322,566 (49.2%) [decrease of 11,688]

Total General/Advanced/Extra - 309,746 (47.2%) [increase of 18,537]

Total all classes - 656,113 (decrease of 18,679)

Note that these totals do not include licenses
that have expired but are in the grace period.

They also do not include club, military
or other station-only licenses.

Note also that effective April 15, 2000, new
Novice, Technician Plus and Advanced licenses
are no longer issued.

Since April 15, 2000, FCC has renewed all existing
Technician Plus licenses as Technician. By May of
2010, the number of Technician Plus licenses will drop
to zero, because all of them will have been renewed as
Technician or allowed to expire. It is therefore
informative to consider the totals of the two classes,
since the Technician class includes a significant
number of Technician Plus licenses renewed as

Thanks for posting this Jim. Maybe now people will see that dumbing down
ham radio was a bad idea.
