[AMRadio] Good News on HAM RADIO

Looks like the largest increase was in Technician class.  I wonder how many of those are the result of the Red Cross, TSA and big emergency organizations helping their folks get a license so ham frequencies will be available to them if needed.  To those folks ham radio is just another walkie-talkie, not a hobby.

Looks like any change is in the noise.  Not enough difference to comment on.
