    Oops, I sorta misunderstood the origial post.

    There are so many facets to the hobby-

    The AMers trying to get the perfect audio

    The hams diing satellite and moon bounce

    All the digital modes

    The mesh networks people are setting up on 440 and 900 Mhz

    My niche is QRP CW. Lately I’ve been trying QRPp-less than 1 watt output. I build little one and two transistor transmitters, go to the park and see how far I get using the Reverse Beacon Network. It’s amazing how far 100 or 200 milliwatts can take you! And the rig fits in a mint tin you can carry in your pocket.
