    Isn't a question like that a bit like the pot calling the kettle black? ;)

    Badger? We don't need no stinkin' badgers!

    And VE7RAC had a real nice signal earlier this evening on 20 CW, fast op, clean fist. Real pleasure to work.

    You call helping others, voicing opinions, and educating, badgering?

    I make contacts on the air every day if I'm home and have some free time.

    Generally, at least 100 contacts a week on various bands and modes (mostly CW and SSB).

    I don't have a remote station (that would be fun) so only operate when I'm home, or sometimes mobile or portable.

    But to get on, I can be anywhere there's an internet connection, so I'm on here from almost anywhere including the local Starbucks.:p Or more likely when I'm "on set" someplace, waiting as usual for others to show up or do their jobs, so there's time to kill.

    I worked HL5JCB, F5BZB, EA1YV, and F6GEX today. The Europeans were worked on 6M E skip, so they all count as DX contacts.
    I also trimmed the trees and bushes in the yard, bundled up the sticks, and put them out for our sanitation department.

    I also grow a collection of big rose bushes--I moved about five dozen them to the front yard so all the neighbors can enjoy the fragrance as they take their evening stroll. Most of my neighbors are smart enough to realize they can only enjoy this garden as long as I take care of them--hybrid teas are high maintenance plants. ;)

    They have these new technological advancements available in this century which allows you to operate on the air AND post on here at the same time.

    It's truly revolutionary, I know!

    I have a very rich life outside of QRZ.
    But most of that revolves around Electronics, taking long walks, reading the news, talking with my friends both on and off the radio, being our radio club secretary, restoring and using test equipment, playing around with RF.
    There is more but I don't want to bore you.
