The best way to get a license:
Here in Hungary the licensing agency requires tax stamps to be supplied with the application, which could be purchased at any post office. That is, you go to a post office and purchase 2,200 ft. worth of tax stamps and those are used to pay the fee. Outside, I should think an international money order for 2,200 ft. should suffice, made payable to: NHH or equivalent to the FCC.
The license costs 2,200 Hungarian forints which, at the current exchange rate of 180 ft/ dollar equals about $ xx.xx
call will be HA/your call
