If you are an amateur radio (ham radio) operator, what do you enjoy about it? What do you do with it, and why do you have a license? If you are not a ham radio operator, do you plan on becoming one? why or why not?

I'm glad that you still operate on 11 meters, despite your difficulties. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you'll get it soon, so that you don't have to be a "pirate".
