Hi Billy: Don't be shy... Tell us how you really feel!
Operate some CW this weekend to avoid the contest madness. Oh yes - good luck fixing the period and comma keys on that keyboard.
How about 60 meters SSB? Or maybe SSB on 17 meters? Or 12 Meters? Or do a little digital on 30?
Or how about CW on: 160 meters, 80 meters, 40 meters, 20 meters, 15 meters and 10 meters?
Maybe try some FT8, JS8Call, PSK-31 etc. on 160, 80, 60, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, or 6?
You're really not very creative in your griping. I mean thinking.
Warning! Thread drift coming...
So, one thing I actually like about sweeps is that the exchange includes all the info I need. IOW, if I tune to a signal where the OP is running, it only takes a bit of time before I have all the info I need to make a decision about calling or moving on.
Something I could do without? The strange beginning and end times for ARRL contests... Certainly favors east coast, which is fair because that's where it all began, but...
"please copy...." You won't hear the good contest ops saying that
Billy, during contests you should turn off the radio and take an English class. Your grammar is horrible.
