Good idea about developing a FAQ on this topic to ensure accurate and factual info for such a frequently asked question.

E.G. - "Ham equipment must be type-accepted" is true ONLY if it is used on marine frequencies. Similarly, the statement about "requires you to have a ham license better than Technician class" is true ONLY for frequencies below 30MHz.
