    Say what you want. you cannot stop the inevetable. I am looking forward to the free ride. I hate cw. MARK is alot easier than -- .- .-. -.- !!!!!!!!!!!!! I can send more than I can recieve. I already have the gear so I would not contribute any more money to them. Maybe the antenna manufacturers. I could always use a better ant. Not only is it going to boost manufacturer sales it will also give a boost to the used radios too. More demand makes the radios worth more. And people will be able to sell radios easier because there will be a demand for good cheap radios that work well, not everone will be able to afford a new HF rig. Catch you on the air after my free ride!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hi Mark.  Is it possible I have heard you on the .85 machine in State Collage?  I'm near Harrisburg, and I have used that repeater a few times to follow friends traveling up your way.

    Just wondering.

    Yep----the quoted posting hear is real and from a guy just above. I guess it's just human nature to want it free, whatever we can get we want. Aty least in this Country.

    This posting was honest, a lot of folks feel like this guy. Do you proponents of the arrl plan , those of you without a conflict that won't be effected by it, actually believe this type of attitude is good for the ars or the hobby? Seems pretty basic to me...Chris

    the arrl sold out the ars/hobby

    Hi Chirs

    Someone else said it,,and now I will.

    The ARRL sold us out. Look at that post you quoted. Those the kind of people they want in amature radio? People that have NO pride?

    I would have been totally embarrassed and ashamed to come on the air without at least trying to upgrade before this proposal happens. The ARRL isn't interested in the quality of ham radio,,Just themselves. "Line their pockets!"

    KB3ITG was yanking your chain to stir you up, and you fell hook, line, and sinker. You guys are so predictable.

    Relax. Kick back. Have some fun on the radio before us Gimme Techs, freeloaders, VHF/CB'ers, (or whatever new stupid name you want to give us this week), take over all of the HF ham bands, and turn them into multiple 10-4 good buddy CB bands. We'll start "CB trucker" nets, "Echo mic" nets, "Roger beep" nets, "Yank out the audio limiter" nets, "My 10KW linear" nets, (and my personal favorite), "Do I Need A License" nets, on every band. Yep! I can't wait for my free ride too. 10-4? boooweep [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Lighten up boys. The whinning and false accusations over a mode of transmission really belittles you. Seek help.

    It's not about a mode of transmission..

    You are stuck on that, and others tried to explain as well. That this about the heart of ham radio.

    When the test is difficult to pass, then only the dedicated,,the disciplined, and quality people that have pride are going to go through all that to want to get there.

    It's about the survival of the core and integrity of ham radio.


    Daaa! If you don't understand by now, you're not going to.....Got no pride

    Right on Dave, you know I researched the origins of this case to drop the CW requirement, and what did I find:

    Those who made the FCC petitions to drop the CW Requirement were in fact Generals and Extras! Not Tech's.

    Irony, they blame the Tech's for something that started with in their own ranks! Hummm sounds like a conspiracy to cause degradation of an entire class of license. I bet when the FCC decided to drop the FCC proctored testing they went wild too. And have you heard of any arguments when they lowered from 13 WPM to 5 WPM from those who got in at 5, as in refusing a "free ride" or some other such nonsense.

    The TECH's did not start this war, EXTRAS/GENERALS did!!!

    But all blame it on the Tech's for NOT refusing a free gift!

    What a laugh!
