I like the idea very much. But I am an radio amateur and therefore I am
a little bit biased :). I was always confused to find them in
media-radio. If we do the move please count on me.
But to be honest there are some amateur (ham) radio related packages in
other categories too (e.g. app-misc/aldo - a cw morse trainer,
app-text/7plus - a packet radio text encoder, ..). So maybe a general
cleanup would be good.
A quick count in media-radio gives 12 packages for amateur radio and 2
others (the second one coming in just today). In sunrise there are 11
amateur radio related packages and 0 others. That means a move to
app-hamradio would leave media-radio nearly empty.
