    My personal specialty is satellites. Since I have to set up my linear station outside, it's a warm-weather activity for me. I have worked FM birds in the past, but we're now down to only one that's active.

    I've worked stations as far away as Florida, Hawaii, Mexico, and Finland. That's probably because there's usually someone who's interested in working my grid square and I'm probably the only one here who's active on satellites.
    Did some sat work with a good sat. Elmer. We worked NA-44 when it was in sun only ops I guess about 5 or more years ago, in APRS messaging. Worked some lads in England and Normandy from New England. Good fun. I need to get back into it more.

    how much money does your hobby or trade cost?
    Here are mine, since I went Level 4 MGTOW:

    For fun:
    1) Online movies and YouTube videos. Here is a great movie to watch, free on Hulu as of this minute (Hulu could change that any time): Watch Margin Call Online | Hulu ("Margin Call").
    2) Books.

    For profit:
    1) Buying passive income generating assets, often below what they are worth. Mostly discounted private mortgages.
    2) Currently building a passive income generating asset: an MLM distributorship.
    3) Started an internet business, but the Filipino who built the website for me quit. So, it's in a lull right now, and not as passive as I want it to be. Will hopefully resume it once I find another qualified Filipino willing to do good work for $2.70/hour.

    When HO-68's transponder was active, I made lots of contacts all over North America, including the station in Finland. So far, over the satellites, I've worked over 40 U. S. states, 6 Canadian provinces and 2 Canadian territories, 5 different countries, and 2 different continents.

    One of the problems with living in my neighbourhood is that there's a lot of QRM on 2 metres sideband. That makes hearing AO-7's downlink in Mode B rather difficult. Still, I worked stations as far away as Pennsylvania and southern Mexico from central Alberta over it. I worked grid squares as far away as Hawaii over FO-29 and I've been able to hear my downlink when it's well past the northern coast of Siberia.

    Not bad for 5 W into a dual-band Yagi, eh?

    yeah.. we DO have a number of women in the hobby/service...a fair number of them are married..
    but I have yet to see any pushing a feminist agenda... (at least the ladies in this understand that they gotta take the license test like everyone else....)
    anyway.. I do some public service in that myself.... this year will be the seventh time doing it.. but I organize a "Radio Santa" visit for my local children's hospital.. and does the hospital love what we do... those kids sure do need a morale boost that time of year..

    Martial Arts. people who really dedicated do are not married and do not have kids. You could be an amazing human when you focus your energy in the right place.

    I strongly recommend it. Any discipline is fine to study. As long as you really try to go up the ranks.

    I am a professional guitarist. Since MGTOW, i completed my Bachelors in Classical Guitar Performance and these days i enjoy my time playing and focusing on some of the electric guitar styles i admire like Jazz Fusion. I also enjoy teaching. Great hobbies and good paying professions as well!

    I am enjoying rising in the steps of "Convict Conditioning". It's a pretty legit body-weight program to get pretty damn strong. I still delve into weight training a bit but am really starting to see the value in body-weight gymnastics training.

    If I had a woman in my life, I would not be able to find the solitude necessary for concentration on this hobby.

    If any MGTOWs are interested in fitness, I highly recommend this book. It requires no equipment and can be done anywhere. The program is perfect for those with a minimalist mindset. I could see this program adding value to a MGTOW's life.
