In the USSR club stations served as schools for newcomers. Club stations 
were supported by the state (premises, equipment donations). One could 
operate club station having no license, get hooked on the hobby, learn from 
old-timers, prepare and pass exams an finally get license.  Most of that is 
gone now.
