Happy New Year!

Greetings folks - 2019 is upon us! I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable new year.

With a new year comes a new annual survey, and another chance to pick the brains of operators worldwide for what they like and dislike about amateur radio, as well as their opinions. Last year was a fantastic survey and I highly recommend checking out the results, if you have not done so. I am eternally thankful for all the blogs, sites and podcasts that picked up the 2018 State of the Hobby survey and push it out to such a wide audience.

This brings us to now. I spent a fair amount of time sifting through comments and suggestions from last year and how I'd like to incorporate that feedback. I received some excellent ideas and I think you'll find the changes to the survey to be more inclusive and more holistic than before. The idea behind this survey is to grow each year. I will be spending the month of February preparing and polishing the survey for release in March. This year the survey will run for a whole month, allowing for the maximum amount of participation.

In previous years I collected email address so I could send out future surveys and results. I'm happy to say the survey and participation has grown to a size where that is not feasible, based on me being an individual doing this on a shoestring budget. I was able to secure this site from some small generous donations, and perhaps in the future I'll open it up for additional community support. Being that I won't collect email addresses, the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to this blog. You can do this a variety of ways, email, RSS feed or via social media.

Again, I hope everyone had a fantastic new year and I look forward to your participation in March!
