    While living in NM, U.S., I befriended a 12 year old boy who lived 100 miles away on 2m. He was so excited to make new friends on the radio but, for the most part, most hams in the state didn't seem to want to bother with him and that was a shame. Whenever I hear a young HAM I always try a contact with them just to make them more welcome to the hobby.

    If by any slim chance you read this Chance, miss you a lot since moving back to MA. 73, Bill

    When I got my technician ticket a month ago, there was a 10-year-old across the table from me getting his general.

    I wanted to ask him for tips on taking my general. :eek:

    I'm a young ham . . . at 59! I earned my Novice license at age 16 in 1971. So yeah, I'm officially well into curmudgeonhood, but I'm still young at heart!

    What do you consider to be a "young user"?

    I am 35 myself. Of course I also still have all my hair, fairly muscular, etc......in person you'd never know I was a ham unless if I told you.

    I am young ham, under 16 years of age! I have my General class license and I am studying for my Extra class. I also am very active on HF, especially 40m SSB and 20m JT65. I like talking to everyone on the radio, no matter what age.

    I am 17, I got my license when I was 13! I haven't bothered to get General yet- Need to get to it- so I am active only on vhf and uhf unless I'm participating with my radio club in a contest.
