Ham Radio still thrives despite the internet

Feb 23 2011

Interesting read…

Somehow it makes little sense that amateur “ham” radio continues to thrive in the age of Twitter, Facebook and iPhones. Yet the century-old communications technology — which demands such commitment that you must generally pass an exam to receive a license — 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.

Why Ham Radio Endures in a World of Tweets

    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,
