What do you like best about the programs at your local club's meetings? Please explain your choice!
[308 votes since 2017-09-12]
  I don't attend them or don't belong to a local club.
  I attend but they don't (regularly) have programs.
  Technical topics like propagation, electronics, antennas, etc.
  Operating topics like how to contest, make DX or satellite QSOs, or handle message traffic.
  Topics specifically for license upgrading.
  I don't like (the) programs.

Strays Add a Stray!
It's all relative.Ham radio is actually a very inexpensive hobby my gear about $7000,some new and some used).Compare that to high-end audio gear used by "audiophiles" In the hundreds of thousands of dollars!
