Okay. If we agree there is no concrete, objective evidence that ham radio's dying; that we need an easier license class, or; that we need to expand privileges; maybe we should discard the notion that any of those things are needed or necessary, and in a new thread: 1.

Other discussion of how to create a more attractive, vibrant, useful, current hobby, if needed.
