You know even Glenn Beck has been telling listeners to get their Ham licenses & buy old tube sets.

Enjoyed talking to you on 2m today, as always. Good stuff on 10m DX ... guess I'll have to start listening over there more often.

Subject: [W6EK] Re: Great FOX News Article on Ham Radio
Through my limited research I've learned many folks who are into disaster preparedness and survivalists have been advocating ham radio licenses in case of or when the phone system goes down. I think we should try to offer something that these new hams would be interested in to get them into the club. There's got to be a bunch of 'em in the area.
