Yes. This is the same HAM license. There are three levels. Tech, General and Extra. I am and Extra. Tech has some HF access and General has most. I go hiking with my son and use a wire dipole with and a rig that only uses 15W. I do have a bigger 100W rig at home. With that I have spoken as far as Australia and even the Scientists stationed in Antarctica.
