Just opinion but the phone has become the tit of the beast that everyone suckles on.

I hate having a cell phone. It will do all kinds of stuff, but all I need is a damn phone ! I'm even getting tired of using a computer and only watch at most 1hr. of tv a night. I grew up listening to the radio and spend most of my time doing stuff with the oldies station in the background. I'm shutting it all down when I retire in 2+ years and just going back to radio. Maybe I'll try and get into Amateur Radio but plan on spending a lot of time out in the boonies, fishing, hunting, hiking and camping.

Ham Radio will cut heavily into television time. Finding folks that are knowledgeable and not contesters or political rag chewers is difficult. Meet some of the best folks in the PSK31 waterfall on 30 meters. 75 meter NVIS phone is handy as is 20 meter skip with a little power.
