They say the pen is mightier than the sword.  I say words are a hammer.  When used skillfully, it can be used to build houses... or it can be used to bash in your skull.

It seems bigotry is everywhere in society, so it should come as no surprise it's even in the amateur radio hobby. We're not talking about racial bigotry, we're talking about ham snobbery.

I thoroughly enjoy amateur radio.  A byproduct of that enjoyment was the development of fascination with NASA, the International Space Station, and outer space.  I still seek the holy grail of amateur radio contacts... a confirmed QSO with NA1SS.  To date, the best I've gotten was a response on Twitter from COL Doug Wheelock.

It's not uncommon to hear a station connect to the Atlanta Rabbits Amateur Radio Club Repeater (http://www.KA5AHS.org) via Echolink only to turn around and disconnect.  Such was not the case about 30 minutes ago.  I heard the announcement of a station connecting, and a call followed shortly after.
