Why do newer hams fail to become truly active? Pick your best answer and elaborate (and remain civil please!)
[121 votes since 2018-03-19]
  They were never really going to embrace the hobby
  Lack of Elmering
  Existing hams off-putting
  Equipment too expensive
  Lack of activity on the air

K5KAB STATION Hi and thanks for taking a peek at my attempt at developing a HAM station. The main radio is an IC-756 ProII that is used mainly below 17 meter. The Yaesu Ft-101EE is my 17 -10 meter radio. Again thanks for looking and maybe well meet on the coax someday soon. 73s

Strays Add a Stray!
The main beauty of Ham Radio is the ability to make contact with another Ham anywhere in the World at any time ! What a reality !! '73; George.

    Shack Showcase N0XMZ
    N0XMZ This is my modest station equipped with IC-725, IC-T7H, HTX-202 (with amp), and loads of test equipment (250 MHz scope, MFJ-259, etc.) for my home-brewing activites. I work SSB, digital, and FM. No CW key here! Next on the agenda is VHF & UHF SSB capability. I love to work DX with my compromise antenna on the balcony. See more at
