With industry support Amateur Radio can make engineering cool

If one looks at countries around the world that have large electronics industries then it cannot be coincidence that they also have the largest amateur radio population. Good examples are the USA, Korea and Japan.

Industry needs people with passion for electronics and engineering, but for some reason engineering is no longer a cool career that young people choose to follow. The engineering compliment is aging and not enough young people are there to fill these position in the future.

As with the experimenter of the early days, a bug has to bite and a passion has to be developed at a young age. This is where amateur radio can play a huge role.  Introduce the mysteries of radio to  young people and get them involved in not just communicating  with others as so many people today believe radio amateurs do, but get them involved in building electronic projects that will be catching their imagination.
