I have been doing alot of reading of amateur radio posts and listening to alot of transmissions in the general coverage HF band and have come up with a solution to the frustrations that come with those who believe that the licenses are being dumbed down year after year.So I think there should be another class of amateur radio license.After all,they came up with the no-code and tech-plus,so why not just have a new license for smarter,better and knowledgable folks?Here are a few question samples that would fit this class of amateurs;
Q-1> If you are an amateur extra-elite class operator and a regular amateur operator jumps into your group,do you?
A)Welcome him into your group in a friendly matter?
B)Ask him how much power he is running and then tell him he will not go far like that?
C)Begin bragging about how much you have and know?
D)Tell him immediately he is off frequency by a micro hertz and have all your friends agree?
E)All of the above except (A)?
Q-2> What types of antennas should an amateur extra-elite amateur operators use on 10 meters?
A)One made of gold?
B)One made of silver?
C)One made of titanium?
D)One made of plain aluminum?
E)He would not be on that band because it is dead and you can only use 200 watts,besides,those loser no-coders are there?
Q-3> How many towers minimum should an amateur extra-elite operator own?
e)All of the above?
Q-4> What types of radios are required by amateur extra-elite operators.
A)$5,000.00 or more?

Q-5> What type of CW keyer should an amateur extra-elite use?

Another obvious answer.

Obviously not (D)
Feel free whomever to add to this pool,as it would be very helpful to some of the better ham radio ops out there.I also took some thought into a special band plan that could benefit others in the radio hobby.26.000-29.000 with a 3KW max.They can teach the unfortunates down there how to become proper behaved radio operators.I believe there are plenty out there who know what I mean
