    “…a vibrant community of technology buffs and hobbyists who have provided a communications lifeline in emergencies and disasters…But that community has been shaken by news that the government will no longer require…”
    (NC Star News story, emphasis mine)

    Yeah, because the last time you saw a providing “vibrant” emergency communications while dangling from a helicopter rescue line, he was tapping out C-dub on a thigh paddle hooked to his 2M HT… (Or maybe that rescue line was actually an HF antenna, hanging from his 20-meter QRP rig inside the chopper…)

    Well it’s not often you see vibrant community and unwashed masses in the same story…………. Oh, that’s right, HAM radio…… Yeah sorry, I just went somewhere else for a moment. Sudden flash back to the last HAM fest beenie baby sale I went to.

    The handwringing by the OFs and the We-Told-You-So celebratory attitude of the No-Coders is sucking the fun of the hobby.

    I’m really wondering why I should keep my license after 12 years…this is bullshit.

    Hell, I thought WE were the unwashed masses?!

    I have been to several “Hamfests”, both in Canadia and the USA and I don’t think anyone has to worry about the “unwashed masses”.
    I have found several amateurs in need of a good cleaning and I certainly don’t like being down wind of many of them.
    There may actually be more “unwashed” in the amateur community than in the general public, on a per capita basis, and they have more to fear in the unwashed area than the other way around.
    FTC!

    What’s that smell?

    Oh, it’s just us, the unwashed masses…

    Did you all ever think there would be this much buzz (http://technorati.com/search/morse+code) in the blogosphere about ham radio?
