In this age of cellphones, Internet, and cheap consumer electronics, many of us lose interest in how things work. Radio orienteering provides an opportunity for Do It Yourself construction and experimentation, fun, exercise, fresh air, beautiful scenery, map-reading, socializing, messing around to try to change the laws of physics, and lots of laughs.
