OK, I'm a gonna vent here......
When referring to Amateur Radio, please don't use the term "HAM", in all capitals.
All capitals implies that the term is an acronym, like NASA, and it's NOT.
Nobody knows where the term "Ham" originated from, although there are many stories floating around. Whatever the origin, it has never been spelled in all capital letters.
Please, use "Ham radio", "ham radio", "Ham Radio", "Amateur Radio", or some other variant.
Every single time I see somebody write something like "Yeah, I'm a HAM radio guy", or "I'm into HAM", or that their hobbies are "Guns, Cars, and HAM", I just cringe. It's almost as bad as the people who post online using all caps.
I've been a ham since 1964, and this is something that's only popped up in the last few years, probably due to the easy access of the Internet, and all the corruption of American English that goes along with it.
So, please, take a little friendly Elmer advice, and don't use all caps.
