Thoughts on generosity and how it is sometimes at odds with self-reliance and independence in our ham radio preparedness mindset. I refer to the Radical Generosity video by Amalya (Ami) Campbell, and discuss happiness, some essential aspects of ham radio, and ways we can express sharing and thanks to the community. I welcome your comments via Anchor Message!
Ami Campbell's "Radical Generosity is a Way of Living, Not an Act of Giving" talk: https://youtu.be/0-tWiTvwv14.
The concept of "paying it forward" seems to be alive and well in ham radio. Wherever I can, I try to do my best to live up to that, as well... It feels essential. But in the sense that it is part of the essence of ham radio. - Rex KE6MT
I have found the community is incredibly helpful and hams have gone out of their way to assist newbies like myself, both down US way and up here in the north. Quite admirable! - Patrick VE7PJG
If we were all selfish bastards I'd have quit long ago. Most people gravitate to generosity. Imagine what it would be like on the radio if everybody was looking out for #1. Generosity is one of the things that breathes life into the hobby! - Charlie NJ7V
When I was starting out in electronics/ham radio there was a ham a few doors down that always helped me. I tried not to bug him too much. - Dan AI6XG
