Noteworthy Ham Radio Hashtags:

I would add: #emcomm #cqcontest #hfradio #wwv #wwyc #dxped #hamrjp #iaru #jarl

Thoughts to be worked out behind Ham Radio hashtags:

There are the higher level subjects that deserve a hashtag such as clubs and orgs, then subs could be contests and events (ie, Dayton, Dxpeditions, etc.) radio operator specific, QTH's, gear, conditions, and other popular social tagging...

A subject for a rainy day?  Any takers on this, add a hashtag or thought on this... drop a note.

FLATOW: I heard somewhere that you build a ham radio as a child.
BLOOMBERG: I was a ham radio operator, yeah.
FLATOW: What was your call letters, do you remember?
BLOOMBERG: I don't remember, just don't remember. My Morse code, I was OK with the code, but I can't spell and for Morse code that's a big problem.
