    A while back, someone posted a question about most look-ups on QRZ. The most I have ever seen is 10,000,018 look-ups for KI6KY. And, it seems stuck at that number. Maybe I'm reading this wrong. John lives nearby and I only ever hear him most days on 7.255.

    I'm not finding where I can take control or edit my lookups to any number.

    Lookup your call sign. Chose to edit your record. Edit your "calol sign" information.. You can change the look up number there.

    Oh Snap, the secret is out! I think the count should stand still until the (actual look ups) catches up with the embellished number. I don't know why some think that the amount of look ups is so important anyway. Everyone can see the (actual number) so why change the counter?

    I spend a fair amount of time on 20 and 40 meters. However it appears that the bulk of the look ups to my page are local. I spend very little time (less than an hour a week)on the local repeaters.

    It must be first impression syndrome. If I look up someone and the counter says 10,000 but the (actual look up) says 1500. My first opinion WT&??? Does not make for a good first impression now does it???

    Kinda like the people with huge cars.

    I was always taught that they're compensating for something:rolleyes:

    When your 6'5" small cars just don't cut it no leg room.

    I have a friend who is 6'7" (and not skinny either) and comfortably drives a Prius. In fact he loves it. His old car was a Ford Taurus.

    Maybe some cars are too small but most smaller cars will fit larger people.

    They'll take away my old Caddy when they pry it out of my cold-dead fingers !

    Whoops, maybe I shouldn't say that. It almost happened to me once. No sense wishing bad luck on myself !

    But I love that big car. It is nice to be able to get in and out of one without bending my broken neck too far !
