So I’m nuts am I ????

May 23, 2010

I recently read a posting from KE9V on his blog, who has an excellent blog and I list it on my blogroll but this time his posting hit me a bit…

Jeff, I am a bit disapointed in this one…  Almost p!ssed but not yet!!!

I ask you to read his posting HERE and then come back and continue reading…

Now if you were to read his comments then substitute Low Power (100w) and High Power (over 100w) and then say that the QRPers (around 5 w or less) were just as bad I believe I would not be writing this article…

All the big lists are just as bad… and yes they are all nuts…but its not a sickness that just runs rampant on the QRP Lists…

How many times have we seen some new ham with a non north american callsign ask how he can modify his new radio to operate out of band???  And then how many people have flamed him quoting back FCC rules and regulations when as he has a non US callsign the FCC rules don’t apply to him!!!

This is just one example…  Look at the eham reviews…..  Some people rate a simple item like an antenna at a “5 ” and other rate it at a  ” 1 ” or even a zero.   Now how can an antenna be so varied??? 

Simple half the people can’t follow instructions and the other half are so set in their ways that they hate it just on the principle of things…

The groups (QRP or otherwise) are just a source of information and not all of it is good information…  Because in our hobby everyone is entitled to their opinions, and everyones opinions vary…

However to be called NUTS because I operate QRP is a bit much….

However as I also operate QRO with my FT847 and my FT897 does that only make me slightly insane?

If any one wants to submit a longer comment on this send it to me via email and I will cut and paste it into a posting (with no editing except for fitting in on the page)  giving you guest blogger status. Once again be polite or at least not nasty…
