RDFs are still used in airplanes, except they are called ADF. They too are being abandoned though. Still come in handy because if you are flying a plane equipped with one you can listen to the game or your favorite AM station en-route. Or simply use it to fly straight to your hometown station.

I just got off the phone with the charter company I am interested in using. The owner told me my resume speaks for itself and I would not need a rating to charter his boats. The most I would need, would be a one hour $70 checkout to practice getting in and out of the slip, which I would want to do anyways.

So the ASA classes are not needed but I am still tempted to take them to get some recency of experience, and to make me finish all my studying. Not sure its worth it at this point though.

I might just take the 105 which does not have any prerequisites.
