Well, I didn't mean it the way it sounds. Of course you can't 'chat', as in a casual telephone conversation, which is how you seem to have taken it. Everybody who would tx and rx are pilots, what I meant is, is any contact (tx) over VHF air freq not from an aircraft legal...And in no way do I, or did I expect it to be, I just figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Nya, Nya...I still have mine from 1959. It cost nothing, was worth nothing and had a little perforated temporary doodad that you tore off so that you could use a radio while you waited for the real "ticket." I believe that the doodad said "bearer," or something. It is a nice, secure feeling to know that I am legal anywhere.
I shudder to think that safety is being compromised by unlicensed yakking.

If you haven't got it already then what I did is just fill out the info sheet stated the purpose for the permit and sent 50.00 with it. But yes, it took me a good hour just to sort out all the junk pages and find the info to properly fill it out. Just keep at it
