I spend to much time on here now. If I had a HAM license I never get anything done! ;-)

Spend as much or as little time as you like. It's a resource. Get your ticket, and you are legal to transmit on the frequencies, modes, and powers that you are licensed for, even if you never transmit.
You don't have to make it a full time hobby.
Besides, with the crappy sunspot cycle, it's not very fun this peak.
I got a license years ago, then realized I was not much of a talker, so stayed on the tech side mostly.
Recently resurrected a couple older HTs that had been idle for years. Might try to get active a bit, but the Hawaii JAM scene is pretty dead. Still not much for gabbing anyway.
