Maybe that's where the problem lies. The amateur radio community in the U.S. apparently has not done a good enough job over the years educating the U.S. public about the value of amateur radio for promoting international good will, assisting in emergencies, and scientific experimentation. OTOH, we, at least many folks in this group, sit in front of our computer screens and argue about contest rules.

AND, we as a country have been doing a lousy job of educating our younger citizens about many subjects, including, but not limited to, science, math, geography, history, and civics.
