Back to my original statement, traditionally radio amateurs are early adopters of technology. With this we embrace and challenge the status quo of what can and can't be done with what we have. We also practice and get familiar with many means of communication because "when all else fails...amateur radio." Thoughts appreciated.
We are Hams.... Resistance is futile.... Your technology will be assimilated.
i've owned a 1974 Yaesu FT101B for nearly 3 months.
it is my main radio
does that make me an early adopter?
This was my first reaction when reading the title of this thread. I'd say that some of us might be early adopters, but that is far outweighed by those of us who continue to use things long, long after their market obsolescence.
