Ham Radio still thrives despite the internet

Feb 23 2011

Interesting read…

Somehow it makes little sense that amateur β€œham” radio continues to thrive in the age of Twitter, Facebook and iPhones. Yet the century-old communications technology β€” which demands such commitment that you must generally pass an exam to receive a license β€” currently attracts around 350,000 practitioners in Europe, and a further 700,000 in the United States, some 60 per cent more than 30 years ago.

    Richard,

    I know this isn’t the forum for this but are you still designing shirts? I own 4 of your shirts and I am extremely happy with the design, quality, and detail of each. I receive compliments from others whenever I wear them. Hopefully you continue your fashion pursuits and I might be able to call on you from time to time as a mentor. I am currently a US Coast Guard Lieutenant looking to move into the world of entrepreneurship.

    Peace and Blessings,
