The last time the ratio of USA hams to the general population was over 1 in 
1000 was 1955 (and earlier).   Since then it dropped to as low as 1 in 374 in 
then went up to 1 in 459 in 2007, and has dropped slowly since then and is 1 in 
438 today.    How many are really active on the air, experimenting or building 
is another story.
