When you tell people that you are a Ham Radio Operator how do they react?
[936 votes since 2017-04-12]
  Interested and ask questions.
  Acknowledge the statement but move to a new topic.
  Indifferent.
  Have no clue about Ham Radio.
  Call you a geek, nerd, etc..
  Confuse it with CB Radio and say something like, "Breaker-Breaker" or "10-4 Good Buddy."
