I'd like to think that Ham Radio has enough avenues to keep most everyone
happy. I've tried a good portion of them myself.

Although I will not go around pretending to understand how some folks find
certain aspects of the hobby interesting or satisfying, I certainly don't
think they are worthless.  Certainly they are worthy TO THEM.

(and good on them for it, actually)

I simply can't think of a more worthless pursuit in ham radio than

Even showed up to field day to get a 5.9 GHz radio link going, and found out

they can't count it as a "contact" for points.  But hey, we got ARRL

"radiograms", half the length of a tweet and twice as pointless!


I've been involved in a few towers going up one even for ham radio, and I

think the lowest we ever made it was a 52 MHz remote receiver for an

input.  I'd love to ask that; "I have a question about my contesting

propagation beacon that has a repeat function too", lolz.
