WOW – Go Utah.  But after thinking it over a little more, I am truly not surprised.  Not surprised at all in fact.

Please forgive me...I know this is way off topic, but thought some of you hams out there might be a little bit interested in this.  I was messing around this afternoon and calculated the percentage of per capita hams are each state in the USA and found a couple of interesting international numbers, as well.  Population estimates come from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_population#cite_note-censusnote-6 and are for 1 July 2017.  FCC license totals come from the www.arrl.org <http://www.arrl.org>  site here:  http://www.arrl.org/fcc-license-counts and are as current as yesterday.

Been feeling well enough to sit today, so I have been looking at per capita percentages of ham operators around the world.  Country per capita hams are:

 

1.  Japan

2.  Slovenia

3.  Taiwan

4.  South Korea 

5.  Thailand

 

Sheer numbers, most hams in the world:

 

1.  United States

2.  Japan

3.  Thailand

4.  Germany

5.  Canada

 

Data taken from:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio_operator.  Using some population sites for the US and the ARRL site to get the total number of hams in the US (and using Jimmy to figure out the blasted math in Excel!), I came up with a %-age of hams per state in the US, which I'm attaching.  

 

It's interesting to see the highest per capita hams in which states.  Most of the states are .37% and down.  Utah is the highest with .56%.  Next highest is Idaho with .50%, Alaska with .48%, Oregon, .47%, Washington, .45%, New Hampshire, .41%, and the rest under .37%.  The lowest are DC, Puerto Rico, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, Illinois.
