Items of Interest: 

Ham Census

This survey is divided into six parts, runs year-round delivering constantly updated results. The only caveat is that, though it is absolutely free for all to take and use, only those who complete all six parts of the Census have access to the full results.

Through this survey, they are getting interesting answers like:

  • 72.1% of operators do some kind of operating (D-Star, etc) using the internet.
  • Another surprising one was the number of operators who have four or more HTs. 48% of operators who took the Census said they had at least four HTs. 15.1% said that they had over 6 HTs!

The ham radio census is in its early days but if early response is indicative, Ham Census may become a reference tool for all those wanting to know how the practice of amateur radio is faring worldwide. They ask quite a few questions in each area, so don’t be surprised if it takes a while.

What does ’73’ mean
