Back when I first got my ham radio license, a friend of mine teased me about "eavesdropping on people's conversations". I told him that it's amazing how much you can learn if you just sit quietly and listen.

Another one!  I've got my Amateur Extra ticket, and am a volunteer examiner.  Mostly I just like restoring ancient vacuum tube tech and getting it on the air, but I do occasionally play in contests.
Earth my body, water my blood, air my breath and fire my spirit.
