I guess we could just go to Amateur License Grade i,2 or three.

But that's what we have now!

Technician is the entry level
General is the middle level
Extra is the top level.

Tech Pluses are all gone - expired, upgraded or converted to Tech Plus. Novices and Advanceds are slowly disappearing by attrition, and now make up only about 10% of US hams.

What's wrong with a three-level system?

Class A had all privileges.

There was also Class C, which was the same as Class A but the exam was by-mail.

I think you meant to say Class C was the same as Class B but the exam was by mail.
