FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1C09)

Q) What is the grace period following the expiration of an amateur license within which the license may be renewed?

A) Two years

NJ2X Notes:
Understanding the call sign grace period is important information for hams who are considering changing to a specific vanity call.  Even though a call has expired does not make it available to be reassigned immediately.
