    I'm going to watch the video, just because of all the drama queens and grammar nazis commenting on it!

    I like this video. I think it’s great to share our hobby and the “radio arts” with others. I’m looking forward to more videos, technical articles, and other materials and events that invite others to explore amateur radio.

    All you have to do is click on his callsign and hit "ignore". Then he becomes the invisible ogre - problem solved. I've got about a dozen of these curmudgeons on auto-ignore...

    I would think Elmering would involve showing proper radio educate , each one of us need to be reminded of that. For instances before transmitting select frequency you intend to be using, then listen for a minute or so to try and make sure if frequency is in use. Once you hear nothing, send out a QRL?, listen for response, if you do not hear anything send out another QRL?, if nothing then begin with your transmission.

    There have been times I have been in a QSO with another OP and all of a sudden some one starts calling out Cq Cq Cq over the top of the operator I am copying, or were copying before the rude interruption.

    A couple of things may have happened here, one, the interrupting operator may have hurried and set up their station and tuned in on the frequency that they have announced to be on of their choice and started to transmit with out sending out a QRL? after they lessened for a short bit.

    Or in the excitement He or She may have been in a hurry and did not listen for any activity and started with their transmission, or they did tune to the frequency and they did listen for a bit and heard nothing, (Not hearing the other OP I was having a QSO with) so they thought they were good to go and started with their transmission not knowing they were interfering with a QSO.

    Hay this happens, that is why it is important to listen a little longer and to be sure to send out a QRL? listen and send QRL? again.

    If this operator would have sent out a QRL? I would have sent back a response which would made He or She know frequency was in use.

    We have all heard op's just send ( ? ) meaning is this frequency in use, it is not a proper QRL? but most of us know what it means, I can except that, when their is a contest going on, during contest their is a lot of operator educate that is ignored, I am not condoning it but I have excepted it.

    While contesting can be fun it is also a breading ground for improper amateur radio educate.

    So we need to be reminded every once in a while of our manners, most of us are not Lid's but we need to be Elmer'd now and then.
