that most people are armed.
Unlike Hawaii where the police chief and his handlers disarm citizens and make us easy prey

A Florida police chief issued a warning to criminals in the state after saving a burglar who was shot by a homeowner.

"One should expect that if you are brazen enough to enter into someone’s residence and it is not yours, with intent to commit an unlawful act, there may be repercussions," Haines City Police Chief Gregory Goreck said in a Friday press conference.

"We live in Florida, and more so, we live in Polk County, and most people are armed," he said.

It has been a busy week. Day 2 was more pistol instruction. Day 3 was CQB Rifle and pistol. Day 4 was combat rifle 100-450 meters, moving targets and night shoot with NODs and lasers.

Ham license now is pretty trivial. It is basically study the questions and multiple choice answers. You arent required to learn anything past that for the test. Unfortunately you will be lost if you ever need to use your equipment. From what I have been told by people who got their licenses in the 60's is that you use to have to know Morris, as well as an actual understanding of how the radios worked and the tests were written questions. You had to actually know what was going on.
Anyway you can take a look at this.

Its definitely dated but once upon a time radio was important.
<tongue n cheek> the film is incredibly racist, didnt see one POC
</tongue n cheek>
I'm an electronics engineer as well as a software engineer, and
an electronics tech that repaired everything from radios, to Radars, to navigation equipment,
to prototype computers.
I always viewed HAM radio guys  as a  club like playing  Polo
or The Masters golf club, only the anointed need apply.
Our electronics have dramatically improved.
RF is a lot of "black Magic" but it is just a radio.
diddy bop sucks. This is the twenty first century, I can rig you up with VoiCom and Internet
in the farthest points of the Earth.
Morse died a long time ago. This isn't an Independence day movie.
If it gets so bad you're back to Diddy Bop, I think you will starve first before your
equipment and skills will help much.

You have to take into account there’s massive cognitive dissonance going on. Life gets worse and worse while people are watching their friends and family drop dead with no explanation.

It’s not the usual kind of advice you find on these sort of forums, but try and lead by example. The world needs less assholes and that starts with you and me.
