Re: Apathy?

gosh, could any of the events in recent weeks have anything to do with this? 
hams providing emergency traffic for katrina and rita. hams still needed in 
texas to provide emergency communication for the red cross and salvation army. 
the price of gas being more than ever before making some jobs nearly impossible 
to perform (taxi, delivery, onsite service, etc). the higher temperatures 
causing you to spend even more money on electricity to cool your home and 

where does ham radio fit in? for emergencies, high on the list, for pleasure, 
low on the list.
