The Part 15 hobby or profession is a very special category, and the people who become involved love it all their lives. The special individuals who go to the great extent of developing and bringing to market the transmitters for our use are exceptionally special, and without them we’d be stuck building our own or not participating.
The Crow’s Part 15 Map seems to show a lot of Part 15 activity, but the numbers need to keep expanding to generate a demand for transmitters, since most of us go with one or only a few purchases.
We’d probably like to get one of each kind just for the interest of it, but the expense holds us back; or a sane wife says “No.”
I try to recruit new low power enthusiasts, but most people humor me for being a little odd, and they get back on their cell phone or watch cable TV for the whole day.
Don’t take this the wrong way, but we are a little bit “special,” if you know what I mean. The manufacturers of Part 15 equipment even more so.
