I rarely use ham radio, I try to always use "Amateur radio"
It's very important and anyone who didn't choose the last option is a no-code lid and probably a yootoob influencer.
Considering the general tone of posts on these forums, I am shocked - SHOCKED I say - to see this particular survey weighs heavily toward "I don't care at all. It's all good to me."
The question and the provided option answers lead the responses.
Ham although its allegedly been around over 100 yrs is in many circles taken as identifying something more often poorly delivered or done more so than as an 'Amateur' activity. As in 'You ham fisted .....' . I wonder why 'ham' is so often conjoined with 'fisted'....
You mean “Amateur RADIO.” We write RADIO in all-caps now, except when it follows HAM. I think this is all explained in the new Common Core Technicians Class License MANUAL.*
(* MANUAL is also written in all-caps now. Try to keep up.)
You owe me a new keyboard and some wipes for the monitor.
Be a ham, not a HAM. It's like being responsible enough to make your bed every morning. It's amazing how far we've allowed ourselves to slide towards ignorance. Do at least one thing properly every day, ham is a good place to start.
In case you were wondering, HVW is almost HAM flipped upside down. They've probably noticed it down under, however.
Hamilton, Armstrong & Marconi.
HAM or h.a.m.
Radio is great, isn't it?
What bugs me is HAM bein used as a noun and not an adjective, as in "Are you on HAM? Are you talking HAM? Is that radio for HAM???" Or worse yet, as a verb: "Did you HAM today?" Ham is an adjective that modifies the noun RADIO. And no, I am not and never have been an English major, just a HAM RADIO operator.
