    I like you, but arguing isn’t hate. I disagree with your assumption.

    Strangely enough, the conversation you mentioned between Lor and Dave is actually about getting rid of the folks that think it's okay to use Amateur Radio for commercial purposes, not encouraging more of them to do it. But then, that doesn't fit in with your agenda, does it?

    I recall a conversation with an 18 year old Army recruit while I was in training (and myself being far older than this recruit) and he had no idea what a CB radio was. That conversation was about 15 years ago. I'm guessing that few people under the age of 35 know much of anything about CB.

    People are just going to have to think up a new bogeyman for the next generation of radio operators to explain their bad habits. I'm thinking that the old anti-drug TV PSA is appropriate here. You know the one. It ends with a kid screaming at his dad, "I learned it by watching you!"

    The same thing that stops any US amateur from operating with a California kilowatt.

    In my school that was a legitimate excuse. They considered an educational experience.

    A little exposure, eh?

    Question: What's preventing existing techs from tuning across the HF bands and listening to what's going on? You know - to gain "a little exposure."

    Answer: NOTHING but unwillingness or lack of interest in doing so.

    Giving away more operating privileges will change nothing in this regard.

    The fact is, the Technician is a poor entry level license when it comes to exposing new hams to the experience of ham radio.
