    Well, by the definition above, I’m a freeloader. While I agree with the argument of knowing more about Amateur Radio than just how to key a microphone and talk, “getting involved” may or may not be possible or desirable for some of us. Personally, I had my fill of “Amateur Radio public service” with what I saw while in RACES, some of that time as a Radio Officer. To be sure, I love to teach, as evidenced by the information that I share. And, I’d rather than a lot of newer hams be more technically adept. But, respectfully, don’t down someone because they may not have ascended to your expectations. And yes, I tell myself this constantly; I’m no saint.

    Currently, I’m taking care of two cancer survivors, one of which is also currently suffering a broken clavicle. So, my aspirations (running feedline, building and putting up antennas, tweaking my limited station to the best of its ability) are, if not on hold, certainly coming along at a snail’s pace. But, family comes first.

    Amateur Radio may or may not save the world. I would say Not, because from what I’ve been reading there are and have been official agencies who’ve shied away from hams being included in contingency communications (in some cases actually having kicked hams out of any previous involvement). The aforementioned agencies’ communications gear has evolved to be more robust so as to not need Amateur Radio as backup. And this is just the electronics; some law-enforcement types would much rather not have hams anywhere near an incident…sometimes upon threat of arrest and/or jail.

    So…this is my current position; it may be considered the proverbial Other Side Of The Coin. There is room for every type of ham. Perhaps this could be a topic of a future RRA or RF Podcast.
