Are you a radio amateur outside the US? We're looking for you.

And by we're I mean me.

Each year I attempt to make the State of the Hobby survey a bit more geocentric. While amateur radio is something that can be enjoyed around the global, some of the issues and topics are very regionally specific. The viewpoints and concerns of hams outside of the US are just as important, and can offer fantastic insights if properly collected.

In an effort to increase the global nature of the questions solicited, I'd like to partner with a few hams from around the world for 2020. I'd like this to be a small panel of hams who have specific insights into both questions pertaining to their specific regions and into those questions on the general portion that may not be applicable.

Specifically, I'm looking for representation from the following continents / regions / countries:
  • Europe (e.g. UK, Western Europe, Eastern Europe)
  • Oceania (e.g. Australia / NZ)
  • South America
  • Central America
  • Russia
  • Africa
  • Japan
  • China
  • India

Ideally, having a background in statistics, data visualization, and demographics is helpful, but by no means required. All that is needed is a desire to be a part of this project, a few spare hours and the ability to communicate via Skype or email. Oh, and being a radio amateur.

If you are interested, please email me at for more information.
