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?
[726 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.

There are certain instances when the use of radio prowords are helpful. If all of you OTs cant take time to mentor 'greenies', you should sign "out". Roger?
