Recently, I worked a person who had a very pronounced style that I found difficult to follow. Afterward, I read on his qrz page that he'd recently suffered a catastrophic illness and was recovering. I should have come to this resolution before, but I certainly did afterward: just like elsewhere in life, it's safe to assume the reason behind what you hear is much more complex than you have any idea about. Many people have suffered through my hamfisted QSOs (one just did a min ago). The least I can do is give everyone the courtesy of an earnest try at having a chat. Also, I am starting to like the sound of the banana boat swing, honestly. I might have to get me a bug.
