Well, maybe I am more picky / choosing. Or maybe birds of a feather flock together.
Yes, friends who are into the same things you are.
Yeah. A bunch of us were together this past weekend, and hoping no one had unknowingly picked up an invisibly tiny unwanted "guest" reproducing frantically inside them, and it dawned on me that there were 7 people all with Extra class amateur radio licenses in the room at the same time.
And I knew everyone's call letters, everyone had experimented with digital communication modes over the air, and have some inter-linked equipment through internet tunnels to cast a wide radio net over a good portion of west Texas and New Mexico.
Operating repeaters and robotic radio infrastructure turns out to be a lot of work to keep it all functional.
