I just found this topic, and the HD Radio forum because I just ordered a JVC KD-HDR1.
Yep, I am a ham... Licensed since 1991, right after the "no-code" license was made available. What a tease that was... As soon as I got home from passing that test, I started listening to the ham bands on HF. "Wait a minute", I realized, "If I want to get on HF, I will have to pass a code test". So, over the following six weeks, I upgraded to Amateur Extra. It has been a great hobby, and an excellent way to meet friends. I have met more truly friendly, nice people via ham radio (and local meetings and clubs) than anywhere else.

With 2000+ posts here on AVS, including many very opinionated ones, over almost six years, that has not yet been a problem.
