For me, dropping a grand+ or so to chat on a BBS -- I'm completely comfortable with this. But, I feel like I want to know that the things aren't either completely dead -- or impossibly busy. I just signed a programming contract, so I have good money coming in this year. So, I figure I'm good for some ham radio expansion sometime late this year.
