Maybe he's just having a bad day...
If the traditions are what you are espousing here, I , without hesitation, will tear up my license.
I think I have empowered my son to be self-reliant; confident; empathic; have a willingness to work hard; and able to make his own decisions. I raised a cool kid who I now fully respect as a full adult. Most fathers cannot make that statement. To wit: I am proud of him. If he chooses not to be a ham, I will respect his decision.
I confess that as much as I wish to, I cannot respect your attitude and opinions on these matters.
But your point is well-taken: one role model is often not a sufficient reason to make the choice to join the amateur radio service.
Ask yourself: are YOU a sufficient role model to make a stranger--such as my son-- join this service?
Say, tell us about YOUR kids. Any hams?
He is definitely off-topic...
I don't have time to read your novels.
They never stay on point.
More diversion than HC's campaign.
You should run for Office.
I think your biggest mistake was YOU posting about your Son not wanting to invest the time required to pass a simple test.
Why do you suppose on Phone and to a lesser extent CW, Operators use ethnic slurs aimed at YOU.
Are you more abrasive than sandpaper?
Are you overly opinionated?
Do you go on the air with an Elitist attitude?
What you are experiencing doesn't happen to the average ham.
Ask yourself why?
So I post a reasonable course of action that your son could take and how you could help him and I get the infamous <ignore>. Too funny. It's still my opinion that giving Techs more bandwidth is not going to cause them to magically upgrade or for large swarms of people to become Technicians.
Since you made very dubious claims about my son--a potential budding Tech--and me as his Elmer, and I said I respected his decision one way or the other, it seems only appropriate that you address such a close-to-home case yourself.
You have asserted that you are defending certain (unclear) 'ham traditions'. It would seem that familial radio amateurs-over- generations is one of those. For example: my father was WA1ZWT.
Any kids? Any kids who are hams? Why, or why not?
Again--your (K1FBI's) kids , sir (and ham radio)....
