I have found it quite enlightening. My original post was to just ask the question: Is any of this new dual band radio a "HAM" radio? What constitutes a HAM radio, and when do I need a license?this thread is actually painful
And from there it has just taken-off and I've learned a whole-lot more. Sometimes you don't know what you don't know.
Thank-you all who have patiently answered my questions and given me insights as to what I'm getting into.
