Grow up. It's only a hobby!
Only a hobby! That's a phrase that always makes me chuckle - thanks Ken!
An upcoming DXpedition to Heard is projected to cost $400,000. Others have cost as much (or more), ham organzations create awards programs, individuals and groups participate in contests for which they've finely tuned their stations at great expense and effort...but it's "only" a hobby.
Sorry, Ken, but a simplistic turning of words in order to belittle someone's devoted interest in a pursuit only belittles the speaker.
