Interesting. I think this is the first time I've seen the number of unexpired Advanced licensees go up, indicating more renewals of expired-but-within-grace licenses than expirations and upgrades.

I've seen it happen before, to both Novices and Advanceds. The two-year grace period is a long time!

The FCC license counts are meaningless.

Here is the problem.  The majority of hams are getting on in years. This is NOT a young person's hobby.

The impimentation of the 10 year licensing renewal period has resulted in thousands of deceased hams being shown as being licensed, with unexpired licenses.

This skews the numbers... I'm sure a few die hards are going to jump in to try and dispute what I'm saying, but the fact remains is that I know of many hams who are still shown on the FCC database as being licensed. The sad part is that many were friends of mine who have past away in the past several years.

Has anyone ever noticed the large number of elderly licenses with lapsed licenses?

Those numbers might get better if previously licensed hams could get their licenses back without retesting....
