In Defense of Ham Radio:

I had my doubts that this would be a good defensive article, but I was wrong.

It is a very good defensive article for ham radio. The responses came at it from differing directions. The result is an uplifting complement for amateur radio in all its manifestations.

Careers in most, if not all, technical areas need the spark of introductory familiarization. We will never know about the past, now, or in the future how many patent holders, technical pioneers, and communications specialists got, get, or will receive their inspiration from ham radio. It is after all, a wonderful and very fair endeavor. Tests restrict it to the serious, and licensing is open to all, regardless of age, sex, religion, political affiliation, or handicap. It surely is a privilege worthy of preservation and advancement.
