involved with a group of motorcyclists who took the tech one day course
to be able to participate in charity events as support and
communication. Many admitted that they only use the radio when
supporting the charity rides and have no other interest.
Possibly a similar thing happens with people who get a license for
skywarn or other emergency group participation.
Brings up the discussion at our last club meeting of the need for more
real "Elmering" as a follow up to passing the test.
