      Since the requirement as currently written asks about the (old) two
      different entry-level licenses and now there is only one, I now ask the
      Scouts to:

      7.a.(5) Explain the entry level (Technician Class) license requirements and
      privileges. Explain who gives amateur radio exams.

      However, I do discuss with them the General and Extra privileges, and I like
      Alan's suggestion. The Scouts should at least understand that higher class
      licenses are available which allow the use of worldwide (HF) frequencies.

        Just to correct some misunderstandings here,
        while Q signals are not used much on VHF or FM
        communications, and especially in VHF/UHF FM ICS based
        communications, they are still extensively used on Amateur
        HF, both on CW and in the Phone and Digital modes.

        While they had their origins
        in commercial Marine Radiotelegraph, they serve an
        additional purpose besides reducing the number of characters
        needed to be sent.  They also facilitate communications
        between persons who speak different languages.
        To prove my point, quick, how do you say
        "I acknowledge your message" in Serbo-Croatian? 
        I have no idea either, but both a Serbian Ham and I
        would both understand "QSL".

        Thus they are not going away and are included
        in Radio Merit Badge as a common amateur practice.
