Make sure that you read the comments at the end of that item #16. The
author of the article got it wrong! In the last 5 years the ham ranks have
decreased by about 26,000 NOT the 50,000 that the author came up with. But
even more important than that is:
1. There's been an increase in the last year or two.
2. Compared to 10, 20, and 30 years ago, the ham ranks are way bigger
Still it takes all of us to get others interested in the hobby. If you're
not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. If you're whining and
complaining, you're NOT helping.

I received this URL today. Read number 16.
This hobby can continue. But only if we build it up through positive
actions. And not tear it down through venom and unkind words.
Think about it....as YOU can make that difference.
