?  I saw this tragedy unfold firsthand when I was growing up.  I knew 
seven kids who were painfully aware that they were less important than 
their fathers working ham radio DX.   It was pukesville to watch it 
happening.  .  .  However, the hobby could just as well have been RC 
model airplanes or toy trains.

?  Good point.  I can get through something at least 8 times faster 
tongue-talking than finger-talking.  However, for a group of more than a 
dozen or so, mailing-list/'reflectors' have some advantages over on the 
air discussions.  
- interesting comments, Tom.   cheers
