Dave is right, insofar as anything that hams care to transmit, or cause 
to be transmitted, on the ham bands may be described as ham radio, and 
insofar as "lots of activity", regardless of how it's generated, is 
inherently good in itself.

All the same, your computer talking to my computer over ham-band RF 
leaves me cold.  And, yes, that includes RTTY.
