Interesting comments on this topic, but I've heard and read it all before really. All I'll say is pieces of paper or qualifications don't make operators, it's the persons themselves and who they are, an a-hole will always be an a-hole regardless of what licence / qualifications they hold 8)

I have heard may times foundation license holders openly boasting of the illegal power they are using & complaining they had to sit an exam to go on the air.
do you understand where power is measured in Amateur radio licencing ?

as it seems quite a lot of the sages , even those with RAEs don't and continue to advise foundational licence holders wrongly ...
