So, I don't operate much. If I were to not renew my license, and at just before 2 years expired renew, $35? Or would I owe that plus $70? They are really trying to get blood out of a turnip....

The FCC has adopted a decision in the matter of Amateur Radio licensing fees — in a remarkably short time in comparison to other FCC NPRM proceedings. The FCC, based on input from the ARRL and its Members, agreed to lower the "Personal License Application Fee" that applies to Amateur Radio licensees from $50 to $35. Unfortunately, it did not accept the ARRL and its Members' argument that due to the services provided by Amateur Radio that the fee should be $0.00.
