    - You buy electrical black tape in ten packs.
    - You've stripped wire with your teeth.
    - You've told your son that, "One day, all this will be yours", and he doesn't respond.
    - You'd rather help a buddy put up a new tower than mow the lawn.
    - You've grabbed the wrong end of a soldering iron.
    - You start giving out RST reports when you are on the cellphone.
    - The propagation forecast means far more to you than the local weather forecast.
    - The microphone or visual aids at a meeting don't work and you rush up to the front to fix it.
    - When your XYL notices a new rig in the shack, you tell her that the rig has been there for years.
    - Your watch is set only to UTC.
    - At night, when you pray, it starts off something like: CQ CQ CQ GOD DE (your callsign).
    - You have had to patch your roof after an antenna project.
    - Ham radio magazines comprise more than 50% of your bathroom library.
    - You have put a GPS tracker in your XYL's car, just so you could watch her on APRS.
    - You and the XYL took a cruise so you could visit the radio room on the ship.
    - You have tapped out HI in Morse on your car horn to another ham.
    - You had an antenna fall down.
    - Your teenage kids refuses to ride in your car because it looks like a porcupine.
    - You know the Latitude,Longitude and Grid Square of your home QTH.
    - You go into the local Radio Shack store and the clerk asks you where something is.
