It is not about "dumbing down Debian". It is about not having dumb names
for menu sections.

First of all, "Ham" is not a word, neither it is an acronym. It roughly
stands for "[H]andheld [a][m]ateur". So what does that make? "Amateur
(handheld amateur) radio". Makes no sense, does it?

The correct term would probably be "handheld amateur radio", but this
is, in my opinion, a bit too long for a section name.

I vote for "Amateur Radio".
