Listening to the Hurricane Net for Sandy on 20M. All day they were seeking contacts from people in the path of the storm. All day peckerwood hams were calling from Nevada, Arizona, Texas, all over to "check in", all with no traffic. Some required relays to hear they were just peckerwoods trying to feel important in the middle of the freaking desert 1000 miles from water with no traffic. The net guy handled it well. I would have told them to go pi$$ up a rope. How did people get this self centered?
