This graph is from Google Trends for the search term "ham radio". The trend is clear, but what does it mean? Here's a few ideas on interpretation, please feel free to add more ideas in the comments:
- Ham radio itself as an interest is in decline
- Ham radio web resources have stabilized, so less searching is needed over time (we've got more stuff bookmarked)
- Information about ham radio is coming to hams from other sources than Google (hard to swallow for me)
What do y'all think?
