One of the amateur radios that the Macon Country ARC used during the 2015 Field Day.

Since I became a blogger for Capper's Farmer in March 2015, I've blogged about a few things.  Memories of my childhood, my pets and my antique tractors, just to name a few. This blog is about another hobby that I've yet to talk about, amateur radio.

I occasionally baffle the younger generation when I ask them what the original social media is. To them, tablets, smartphones, Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, Twitter and all the other social media platforms are all they know. It's been in their lives since the day that they were born. If you are a young person, think about it. Social media did start somewhere and still exists, even if you don't really recognize it.
