Why do newer hams fail to become truly active? Pick your best answer and elaborate (and remain civil please!)
[160 votes since 2018-03-19]
  They were never really going to embrace the hobby
  Lack of Elmering
  Existing hams off-putting
  Equipment too expensive
  Lack of activity on the air

Strays Add a Stray!
Recently my wife was impressed by ham radio. A battery died in a new rental car in the middle of nowhere, possibly causing us to miss an overseas flight. Then, LiFePO3 batteries used for FT-891 managed to jump start the car.
