FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1D08)

Q) When may the control operator of an amateur station receive compensation for operating the station?

A) When the communication is incidental to classroom instruction at an educational institution.

NJ2X Note:
The term "amateur" reflects the principle that Amateur Radio and its skilled operators are committed to the pursuit of their interests in radio without financial compensation.  The motivation of amateur radio operators is fundamentally different than in commercial radio which operates necessarily for profit.
