Every occupation and interest has its own lingo and custom. Amateur radio is no different. The disappointment, maybe discouragement I see are people truly friendly enough to say, ‘hey, let me help you’. So far I’ve heard friendly voices on the air. Clubs, less so. Even less so on some internet gathering places. The ham snobbery is terrible. You would think it’s wine connoisseurs discussing a ’68 Rothschild wine, except it’s about some and their lack of knowledge while using 20 meter. Whatever.
