I mentioned in yesterday’s post about Dayton that this year seemed to be more fun than the last couple of years. One of the reasons for this is this meeting of #HamTwits. On Saturday, a group of us met on the loading dock at 11 am.
There are lots of hams on Twitter, and we’ve become quite a community. From my @kb6nu account, I Tweet only about amateur radio topics and only follow other amateur radio operators or people that Tweet about amateur radio-related topics, such as electronics or software. I have more than 2,000 followers at this point.
Take a good look at the picture. I’m the oldest one in the photo! Who says that amateur radio doesn’t appeal to younger people. I saw lots of young people at Dayton this year.
