    I was a ham < 30 for 15 years. Just turned 30 in Jan 2008. Hopefully one or more of my children will get interested and I can help add to the < 30 ham pool!

    I'm 24 just got my call almost 2 weeks ago...

    As for the "more kids in ham radio"...I don't think there's anything that'll be more effective compared to kids being lured into drinking and partying while they're in high school. I'm not saying it's a bad thing to get younger kids into ham radio, hell I think it's a good idea...but only if it'll withstand the high school period. Some might stop because "it's dorky"...some might not who knows. It's tough in todays society to keep kids out of drinking, drugs, etc.

    I think ham is a wonderful thing.My grandfather got me into it.I played on cb's for years and my grandpa told me to quit wasting my money on it.Now i know why he said this.Ham is so much better.The main reason i got my tickect is because i have a 3 year old little girl and every time i turned on the cb she heard F this and F that.well thanks grandpa for getting me interested in HAM. 73's KE5SNK

    I had to laugh, I didn't realize that under 30 would categorize me as "youth", sometimes my 27 years feels like so much more. Then again the local club meetings assure me that it isn't.

    It's really cool to see others chime in. I know that meeting other younger operators would increase my enjoyment of the social aspect of the hobby. The few that I have met around here are great and we share alot of common interests (*nix especially).

    I'm 29, and have been a ham since I was 22. I guess I would be an old timer on the youth forum!!!
