    Christian "Doc" Payne, G5DOC QRZ Quote: "When Im asked why Im fascinated
    with radio when we have the internet I dont talk about ... the constant surprise when I bounce a signal round the world on 10 watts, ... I explain
    that audio carries emotion better than any other medium."

    Propagation Ham - Originally coined by Tim Deagan, KJ8U, in Episode 334 of
    the QSO Today Podcast to mean the ham that builds the gear, tests it on the air, then goes back to building. This can be applied to hams that like to build antennas, transmitters, etc to see where their signals propagate.
