From http://www.arrl.org/fcc-license-counts

the number of current unexpired FCC issued amateur licenses held by individuals on March 2, 2017 was:

Novice:                 9,728     (1.3%)
Technician         372,814   (50.2%)
Technician Plus            0     (0.0%)
General             172,701   (23.2%)
Advanced            44,364     (6.0%)
Extra                 143,497   (19.3%)

Total                 743,104


Percentages may not add up to exactly 100.0% due to rounding.

No new Novice or Advanced licenses have been issued since April 2000. However, the totals for those classes may sometimes show an increase over prior numbers due to renewals in the grace period.

This is a new record high total.

With the license counts in decline it it may be pointing to a failing at the efforts of the ARRL to keep the amateur radio hobby as a compelling message and relevant to prospective new members. Clubs and VEC's may have decreased their efforts to host sessions for recruiting, training and testing.

With field day and Dayton we should be expecting an uptick in activities and participation.

If these upticks do not happen then we have missed the boat in how to engage new membership. We will have "jumped the shark".

Don't jump off the boat yet...it's the first decline in how long?...I don't have time for the research.

And don't forget...if you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem.

Not hardly!

Yes, the total occasionally falls from month-to-month (the last time was April-May, 2015) but the long-term trend is a steady increase.

Over the past ten years, the total has increased by more than 60,500 ... about 9.5 percent.

Tisha,

I've been watching the numbers for years now - (since long before this thread started in 2010) and I can tell you this:

The numbers go up and down daily - but the long-term trend for the past 10 years or so has been up.

It's similar to standing on the beach when the tide is coming in. The water comes in waves, and every wave is not higher than the one before. But - over time - what was once dry sand becomes underwater when the tide rises.

For some reason the license count numbers remind me a bit of the stock market!   Slowly increasing, with occasional corrections!!    Roll Eyes

What I had found interesting was the decrease in technician and general class licenses. Over a six week period there should of been a smoothing out of the daily volatility of the numbers with a modest increase.

This does appear to have some seasonal aspects that repeat annually. We seem to go on a hiatus in the springtime from VE sessions, attendance or membership drives. This too I would of expected a little upwards bump in advance of the field days.

I would expect that the ARRL would have someone who at least looks at the membership numbers and ways to improve our brand recognition or enhance the appeal to our target demographic.

What I suspect is that we, and the ARRL, do not understand what our target demographic should look like. We are staring inwards at our navels and can only see people like ourselves being involved in amateur radio.

Frankly I am surprised that we do not include membership paperwork in the AARP junk mail that begins to hit our homes when we turn 50. (not that I would want it, that is a demographic that is overplayed as it is).

To ask, do you have these numbers in a spreadsheet?

I want to run some analysis on them and don't want to key them all in if you have already done so. If the data already exists in a table it would be great.
