In the US, there are currently three levels of Amateur Radio Licenses
Technician – This is usually the entry license, and gives access to all frequencies above 30 MHz. In addition, Technician class operators have access to limited frequencies in the HF bands
General – This gives you access to all US Amateur bands
Extra – This will give you access to all US Amateur Frequencies.

Please note: Band Plans are not the same as frequency allocations.
While no one “Owns” a frequency, it’s up to us to play nice with other users. So, please consult the “Considerate operators Frequency guide” when choosing an operating frequency.
