“I’ve been a ham forever. I thought I’d lost interest in radio, but it turned out that I’d only lost interest in post-modern radio. It’s all boring chitchat on overdesigned, mass-produced toys that are obsolete every 9 months. Since just about everyone in industrial countries will soon be wearing global communication on their belt, the romance will inevitably shift from the mere doing of radio to doing it as art. It’s already starting, as witness the sudden rush to own any kind of tube radios at all.”
