Sometimes blogging throws a curve ball and I thought long about a recent comment. Do I publish those words in there entirety? Or, is this comment, a two-way conversation between anonymous and myself?

Is ham radio in need of change from the grassroots to national organizations to non-profits? Yes and many of us are proactive in seeking change that is reflective of our digital century.
Here is a good example of change in ham radio. The Northern California DX Foundation (NCDXF) just announced that K5D [Desecheo] DXpedition (link) is now on Twitter.
I am moving forward and setting my goals according to ham radio's digital century. Thank you for our private conversation.
