We Are the Handlers

FAQ #189 Who are we? We are the traffic handlers. We are the operators who fight the static crashes and the sun spot cycles to get a message right. We are those who care about sharpening the skills that make us good operators. We are willing to practice, to spend our time in taking and delivering a message, in acting as net control, in serving as a link from one net to another - even though we might have other activities pressing. We are the volunteer communicators for served agencies.

We are the workers, the retired, the students, the young, the old, the happy and the struggling, We are the experimenters and the conversationalists. We are the stations that ask first before using a frequency. We are the operators who willingly give a repeat five or more times if the receiving station is working hard at getting it. We follow net discipline. We listen.

We are the folks who know that every time we handle a message, participate in a net, maintain our equipment, and keep the system working, we are contributing to the reason ham radio exists today. Are we special? Heck, no. We're just providing a service while enjoying our hobby. Anyone can do it, and let's hope a lot more anyones join us soon. 73 – K9LGU/STM-WI
