Gene, is it wrong to make ham radio known in other enviroments ? Your tone sugested some kind of aversion towards it.
Just a personal preference.
I realize that there are many new ops that embrace the latest fads of connectivity be it twitter, facebook or whatever and I think HR should be advertised and enjoyed any way to enhance it's presence and use. I was merely stating I personally do not use any of the social networking conduits for ANYTHING. I don't like them and don't trust them. The closest thing to those I get is the forums on eHAM, QRZ, etc.
But I do use ham radio in the classically sense by communicatinig via RF with a radio and have lots of fun doing that. I also have non-hams and hams, both newly licensed and old timers, visit my ham shack and I provide a means for them to operate or observe, as the case may be. I also participate in teaching ham radio classes with our local club and mentor (Elmer) anyone who ask for the assistance.
To each his own, but I'll stick with old school RF-based ham radio.
