What this dandy interactive map does -- despite reported inaccuracies --
is demonstrate the density of the amateur radio population in given
neighborhoods. There are, for instance, as many as 95 hams in my
suburban Washington, DC Zip Code. Many appear to be inactive, yet they
still hold licenses and would probably admit to at least a passing
interest in the hobby. Such numbers could represent a relatively
impressive constituency if united against the local authors and
defenders of restrictive covenants and neighborhod association edicts
that restrict the activities of so many of us.
I plan to invite my ham neighbors -- now that I realize that there are
so many of them -- to a cookout at my home this summer. It could be a
nice "get acquainted" day and a fine opportunity to "strategize" (as the
boardroom vernacular now goes) about matters of common interest.
