    Radio amateurs have spoken and the results are in!

    This year had a fantastic turnout for the State of the Hobby survey. I want to specifically thank for generously featuring this on the news portion of the forums not once, but twice. The larger the sample size, the more clearer a picture we get when looking at the results.

    While 2019 not only had the biggest respondent turn out, it was also the longest survey to date. The accompanying report is also the longest, so I suggest getting a nice cup of coffee and settling in. It's worth the read.

    73 - hope to catch you on the air and see you next spring!

    How do you view this thing? It keeps opening a page with a link then another, then another. Got tired of futzing with it. Waste of time.

    The guy does us all a favor, doing the survey. Takes the time to do the survey and prepare a report on the results, and all you can say is "waste of time"? Not nice.

    That worked. Initial instructions on how to use it could have been a little more detailed.

    Great job. Useful and insightful data. Thanks for taking the time to do this -- that it is an independent "entity" and not our main advocacy group, not political, and not government, says a lot for the validity of the survey. Well done and congrats.

    Thanks for doing the survey,

    Biggest take-away, "As expected, techs responding to the survey were overwhelmingly for this (adjusted HF privileges), scoring it a 3.95," - so that answers the allegations from naysayers that Tech's don't want it.

    It's disappointing that so many higher class licensee's are opposed - use it or lose it (them) - ie. HF allocations and noob's.
