Lets reach out to older hams in Nursing Homes N0HWJ on 22/2/18
I would like to suggest that we turn our efforts away from the young for a time and let us look at the older ham that is now in the Nursing Home or Assisted Living home, that no longer has access to Ham Radio.
At one-time phone patching was a big part of hame radio, I would suggest we hook up our old phone patches again and then make phone calls to our older ham friends around the country in Nursing Homes- Assisted Living centers and allow them to take part in an ongoing QSO, and maybe even perform a CQ call, check in to a net they used to visit before they had to move to the Nursing Home etc.

Any other suggestions on this subject would be appreciated by this 80 old ham that has been a ham for 60 years, and who knows if I live long enough I may benefit from this plan. N0HWJ
