Is ham radio as important to you today as it was when you first got your license?
[643 votes since 2018-11-23]
  Yes definitely. It's often the first thing I think of each day!
  Yep, except I've cut back a bit because of other life demands.
  Yeah, kind of.
  Not really. Too many other things to do.
  Not even close. Too much politics, whining and arguing going on all over.
  Ham radio? I don't need no stinky Ham radio!
  I go back and forth in my enthusiasm.
