Amateur radio for me was the very stepping stone while in high school that guided me to my life work field of electronics. Without it, I would have proceeded in another direction that more than likely, would not have been so gratifying as an RF specialist for many years.

Do You Have a Ham Radio License?

Thanks for voting in today's poll.

Throughout my years in the electronics field, I have had the good fortune to work with many very excellent engineers and technicians. Some were Ham radio operators and some were not. I cannot say with any authority that those who were Hams were better that those who were not; however, I can say that the Hams seemed to be on par a little more enthusiastic about their jobs. That impression was not biased based on my own status because I did not earn my license until a couple years after leaving the professional workforce to run RF Cafe fulltime. In fact, I often felt somewhat inept around Hams because their lust for circuit and system design and testing manifested itself in high confidence and dogged determination to make things work.
