    I am interested in hearing the other hobbies of other youth in Ham radio (OT's are NOT excluded). I enjoy running track, and I excel greatly in this sport. I do sprinting (100M, 100M Hurdles) and jumping (Long Jump), and a bit of Discus. In fact I hold several county records (and a club record for the most club records [​IMG] ) I also play the piano, and I am also good at this. I play nearly exclusively ragtime, with a bit of Jazz.
    Within Ham radio, I do EXCLUSIVELY DXing (mainly CW). I have 175 entities (89 confirmed). I owe this relatively high total (for 7 1/2 months) to three things: Luck, a mountain top QTH, and a FB+++++ Elmer (N4ZH Terry Hines) who has been a ham since the 50's and has 320 entities and counting.
    Eager to hear what others have to say! vry 73, de Brennen KI4PRK [​IMG]

    Well, lessee here. I play electric bass, do some oil painting, write novels, do strange things with a Dremel moto-tool, and work on the KDE Desktop development project.

    I've tried geocaching with my family. I also built a MFJ QRP 40M rig, and am starting the schematic for a homebrew home designed rig.
    I once tried golf and really, really, did bad [​IMG] too bad...

    Geocaching is a lot of fun. I've (almost) finished a 20m Rockmite. Ubuntu Linux (or any Linux distribution) makes for an interesting alternative to Windows and is somewhat of a hobby. I run Ubuntu with Beryl Windows Manager.

    I bike, do some software development for the fun of it but in september it stops being my hobby and becomes my education. I play guitar and piano

    sub hobbies within radio...there's a lot, homebrewing, satellites, VHF weaksignal(with hilltopping), bicycle mobile, and psk31. I've been working on my WAS on psk whenever my hf antenna is up and I have a little time to do it
