If you think you know what a nerd is, try visiting a swap meet or convention where amateur radio operators like to hang out.
Heh. There has been talk at work of 'nerd quotient'. I would like to point out that there are those of you who think that you are nerds. You're very nerdy, do lots of neat things and probably even have snazzy blogs. And then there are amateur radio nerds, who smash your nerd abilities to tiny bits. I've been a FCC licensed nerd for 12 years. :)
