I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say.

Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones.

I could see how it plays out:

>Accredited examiners go SK
>FCC/ISED does nothing
>eventually re-allocate amateur frequencies cuz "NOBODY NEEDS HAM anymore!"

or

>new HAMs realize "hey, this hobby could easily die out"
>join an organization to replace old bloods
>continue passing on the torch

realistic outcome:

>a little bit of both
Was flipping through a HAM magazine from 2000. Same exact existential worries.

The worst thing is the tens of thousands of boomer hams with stacks of radios they don't use.

Why does this niche hobby have an enormous market? Why do Yaseu and Icom have hundreds of units in their active product lines? Why is wire at Ham Outlet two dollars a foot?

Boomers blowing their grandchildren's future. That's why.
