It's about time hams (yes, all of us) took more interest in public
perceptions and looked outside ourselves.  Like it or not, there's a much
bigger competition out there - for the minds and hearts of potential new
hams, and we're up against the Internet, video games, computers and dozens
of other pastimes.
