Why are you doing this?

Amateur radio is an exciting hobby.  The ability to use the amateur radio spectrum is a privilege, and the evolving technology to make use of it is an opportunity.

I hear concerns expressed at events and clubs about the age of the "old hams" and genuine concern over protecting the amateur frequencies available for amateur use in the future.

I think information technology and the amateur radio frequencies provide us all opportunities for a rich and ever evolving hobby.
