    Depends, didja pass a code test? Don't bother to respond if the answer is 'no'.

    I'd wager that the bands are friendlier because old codgers who weren't friendly or inviting, have died off or left the hobby.

    That reminds me of the: No lids, no kids, no space cadets. Very welcoming.:D

    Perhaps. But there are lids of all ages. AND...while the old codgers who acted out on 75 in the 70s and 80s have gone on to their place in the ether, not surprisingly a new crop has replaced them.

    1. Was it a troll post? Don't know. Don't care.

    2. Are the bands friendlier now? Don't know. I do believe ( a) as others have said, hams are just a reflection of society in general, ( b ) with all the "connected-ness" we are simply more aware of lids now than we were before, and ( c ) how we perceive things is a reflection of our own disposition, curmudgeon-ness, or whatever. I choose to see the good in the hobby. When I encounter the bad, I spin the dial. No problem.

    I dunno, the hams I meet on-air these days are pretty curt... they keep sending really short transmissions, like R-05 and RR73 and then they rush off to talk to other people, whom they don't treat any better. :oops:
