Of course not.
After people receive their ticket, the VE's tell them to visit the Ham forum on
AR15.com and check in.

I was down at HRO the other day. Guy said they are BOOMING.. they just increased the store size. He thought that because people weren't going out and the economy is bad people want to stay home and do this as a hobby. I think he is partially right, I also think it has a lot to do with why guns are selling so good. People in general see that there is a storm brewing, things could get very bad, and the feds can and will shut down the internet/phones.. But they can't shut down my radio....

I'm sure all of that is part of it. Ham radio is promoted in various circles as a salvation, to one degree or another. I do and always have regarded it a useful tool for promoting the cause of freedom, but beyond that i don't hold any particular illusions.

One thing I do know, it is more affordable than ever - and that is good for the business!
