First of all, i'm a tech, i'm almost ready for elements 1 & 3, and I don't want any crap about it!
I've only been into radio for about a year, but my WYF says i'm addicted. I have no idea why she would think that, but here are some of her arguments:
1. "You wake up at 3am on your days off because you say the 'iono-whatever is right.'"
2. When it rains, walk into the back yard. The antennas are so dense they act like an umbrella.
3. My dogs are learning CW.
4. My WYF and kids know what ITU region we are in and understand the GMT offset.
I'm not hooked. I can quit anytime I want, really.
Really I can.
I just don't want to!
