I agree with Ron, yes, some may have got a license for a different reason
than we did, but at least they DID get a proper license before using the ham
bands, and maybe with some proper direction from the"Old Farts" we can make
some of them into real hams !!

WABOOF WHAT A BUNCH OF OLD FARTS!! ( I can say that because I am old too! )


Here a guy is trying to convey a little good news and all you guys can do is
make disparaging remarks!!  Talk about a glass half empty club!  Hell, a
1.2% increase is at least 1000% bigger than the stupid senatorial race in MN
and now they're arguing about less than 10 parts per million ballots!!!


A new ham is a new ham, it doesn't matter what the initial motivation was,
if they have a license it's our job as Elmer's to mold them into amateur
radio operators! Don't sit around and whine!!! Get up and do something to
help them appreciate and enjoy the hobby.

Good news folks.. The Ham Radio actually grew in 2008. I would love to 

Know the breakdown of techs, Generals, Extra.. 




At our management meeting this morning I learned that (matching end of year

There was approximately a 1.2% growth in hams in the USA

And there are 28,066 new US hams in 2008.


To those people and groups who were active in promotions, classes, exams and
teaching - ya dun gud!
