Pretty nothing IMO. Every licensed ham is a worthy ham unless this particular ham is doing something that improves ham's let's say skills. There is no right or wrong way to do this. There is no low or high speed of skills improvement. For a newbie local VHF/UHF is a huge step forward from nothing. For an old ham still local VHF/UHF after many years is not any further step but rather step back to nothing. For an old ham local VHF/UHF after great activity is just retirement so nothing wrong here. I'm not yet. See my poor results on my QRZ page. To be a DXCC member is just one of many criteria. IMO one EME QSO worth a hundred of DXCCs on HF. IMO to build the radio from crap worth a hundred of DXCCs on HF. And so on. I'm saying 'DXCC' and mean anything that proves ham's skills. You're absolutely right! I've added 'in my opinion' everywhere. And please check your sarcasm detector as my signal is not as clear as should be good for that detector to work flawlessly.
