Where is the New Generation of Operators? Wanted ! More Amateur Radio Operators!...
Hams are priceless, a unique blend of scientist and hoobyist. Any experienced ham can spot another of his own ilk from a distance of 50 feet in dimly lit room. How? It's easy if you stop to divide hams up into specific generic groups. First there's the old timer; he was on the air when they opened the bands. If you want to get along with him you've got to reminesce Collins, and Tubes . Next we have the average ham's, he's keen on telling you about the time he worked some fellow on 80 meters or how he opened his rig by snipping a diode . Our last true-blue ham is the newly licensed youngster. He's quick to try and argue down any pet theory , computers, software you may have and has fortified himself with dozens of handly little facts for the occasion. He knows Martti Laine , and is quick to point out differences between ham's and CB'ers (he was one himself).
You're probably saying to yourself that these guys must have very little in common with which to share a hobby. You're right, except there is one common denominator; mostly they are looking for DX . Ham radio needs more operators.
Incentive licensing has been with us long these years until now and most active amateurs have formed opinions either pro or con. On one extreme is the self-righteous type who regards the present system as the perfect solution to all our problems. In his opinion anyone who is critical of the new regulations is automatically branded as lazy. On the other extreme is the fellow who considers incentive licensing to be a plot by the new left to destroy amateur radio entirely. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. One conclusion Amateur Radio is Important on every country .
We need more operators to preserve the future of our "hobby"!
This page is dedicated to some friends who has the possibility to give this DXCC Entity to many people around the World. We'll also place notices here regarding S. Tomé e Príncipe amateur radio operations.
