Take a look on auction sites if you want to see what overpriced is, and some will buy it as well :crazy:

For me its about learning about radio propagation and electronics, soldering building low power radio's
How a transistor works. whats an IF and a how to calculate resonance of antennas etc.
I like to read and learn, although trying to get it to stick in my head is a task.
Experimentation is the key, Building things 10GHz Gunnplexers, ATV transmitters. Morse Code.
The list is endless, for me its NOT about Contesting or Working DX although that seems to be the key aim embedded in Ham Radio, I.E
Make your station better to work longer distance DX etc Not my idea being honest.

The main thing for me is the diversity of the hobby.
There are so many paths to go down.
A Full Radio Licence allows you to experiment, and hopefully not cause interference to other radio users be it hams or who ever.

I started on CB 1979, will always love CB, but trying to improve my knowledge of all things Radio is what I enjoy.
And NO Im not an expert I gets things wrong, I mis-remember things.
But Its all about the learning and the friends you make on the journey.
That sums up Ham Radio for me.
No Cardigans here, Just a Huddie, and the occasional Worthers hehh hehh
