I saw a referance in an earlier post as to the intent of this "Youth Forum",however it was not explained in detail what the intent is !! May I ask, what is the intent ? Is it to Plagiarize the existing Amateur Radio service and formulate a service that discrininates age ? Or is it to bolster the present Amateur service and rekindle the Fraternal bond for the exprienced and knowledgable,so that they can pass the torch on to the neophytes who enter ? Or is this some kind of demand that the youth have the oppurtunity to make their own mistakes, as some right of passage,to only be observed by those who have traveled that road before ? If this is an effort to take from those who have built the traditional Amateur Service, and change it for the mere sake of proving the power of youth, then prepare for an uphill climb. You will have the minds and traditions of those thousands who have gone before you and willing accepted Amateur Radio for the Institution it has grown to be,that you must change to be successful.
