Looking back to YOUR start in Ham radio, with an eye to "...the way things are in the world" to-day, do you think that you would have become an Amateur radio operator if you were somehow miraculously the same age as when you started, but in 2014?
[1590 votes since 2014-09-11]
  YES---I am just a diehard techie who loves hands-on technical things.
  NO---Far too many distractions to-day, what with Facebook, Twitter, the internet, & computers in general.
  YES---Radio offers a challenging realm totally separate from the "user friendly" stuff of to-day's world, where most ANYONE is able to participate.
  NO---I probably wouldn't even have HEARD of Ham radio in to-day's popular media & social culture, so how could I have joined the ranks?
  What does it matter? The world is what it is. You can't miraculously transform 1950, or 1960, onto the present. Every dog has its day, & Ham radio's glory days are surely, for better or worse, behind it.
