    Agree 100%. It's also a cure for isolation. For people with mobility issues just leaving the house can be an all day event. I have seen local clubs get people up and running who otherwise could not have physically set things up. They can also help provide low cost gear. Bbq, pizzia, chili, beer and or coffee can sometimes increase participation.

    I'm sure that when I get to old age, "mentally fit" will be a matter of opinion...

    ...mentally fit, means «witty n' smart»?

    Radio might help to some extend, found out tuning not my transceiver but my violin instead is gratifying too.
    Was a too long hyatus, getting older allows me not bothering anymore what neighbours hear. Afterall, do them, they care about their RFI emitting stuff?
