bad news: all license class totals except one decreased
good news: number of Extras continues to rise and 700,000+ is A LOT of US hams

We lost quite a few Novices... but maybe next month will see a new upswing in overall total.
is this the first downturn in years? (i'm too lazy to scroll  Cheesy )

We didn't lose them. We know where they are.



Of course there are also those who let their license lapse. And the number of Novices and Advanced license holders can only go down, either by death, not renewing or by upgrading.

More like 1688 hams

Even a day later (4th, Oct) the numbers declined further;

Novice:             12,219  
Technician      355,601
Technician Plus         0  
General          168,841
Advanced         51,682
Extra               135,677

Total              724,020

Yes, we did.

It should be noted that the totals posted are for current, unexpired licenses held by individuals. They are updated at least daily by ARRL, based on FCC data.

This means the number fluctuates wildly from day to day. If someone lets their license get into the grace period, even for a day or two, they are not counted. If a whole bunch of renewals-in-the-grace-period or new licenses are processed, the number soars.

The variations are sometimes quite large - which is why I don't post more often.

If you look short-term, the numbers can be misleading. Step back and look long-term, and a pattern becomes clear.

It's not just hams dying, either. Some folks get a license-in-a-day and never use it. Some are licensed, try out amateur radio and find it's not for them. Some got licenses years ago for honeydew reasons, but now they have cell phones.

Also, the 10 year license term and changes in the renewal method have caused more than a few hams to unintentionally let their licenses get into the grace period - or beyond.

And now they're up again:

October 12 2014

Novice:            12,221 
Technician      355,838
Technician Plus         0 
General          168,936
Advanced         51,665
Extra             135,750

Total             724,410

The numbers fluctuate from day to day, with downturns and upturns of several hundred being common.
