    I doubt anyone is jealous unless they are impressed by celebrity. Allen doesn't impress me because I understand there is no honor amongst thieves. He did turn in his compatriots for a lesser sentence which tells me this is a man that cannot be trusted as he would sell anyone out for his own skin. He is an entertainer after all. Just because he put a radio on set does not make him the savor of amateur radio.

    I guess if your into that sort of thing its a big deal but I am not. I tend to prefer the people who push forward the state of the art, Instruct and lead the way. It fine you like this sort of thing but don't expect me to pay for it. If you want to pay for it subscribe and join patreon. That's the venue for this kind of drivel.

    I know someone here at QRZ likes this stuff, one of the janitors makes a point of following me around about it. But again it just makes sure when my membership runs out I won't be renewing. Many others feel the same as you can see here.

    I just wonder if Cardi B was holding a handheld while grinding with her partner a few nights ago if you all would be singing praises over it. I tend to think so.

    Leah isn't wrong here gentleman, Many of you like to knock Jason and his content.. but only AFTER clicking on it and engaging in discussion about it. What is a website's purpose if not to engage it's users? Or a podcast's for that matter.. or a video's?

    We are always appreciative of those of you who choose to subscribe and our entire 4 person staff works full time to bring you features that you value like XML service, an upgraded QRZ Logbook experience, QRZ Operating Awards, etc. We also put a lot of time and effort into doing things like maintaining the functionality and responsiveness of the callsign database, moderating the forums, and curating the front page, none of which have a huge effect on our operating budget. We do these things because we really, earnestly enjoy being of service to the amateur radio community. We also enjoy being a meeting place of sorts where amateurs can share information and opinions. So, please by all means, continue to do so.

    And if you'd like to have a hand in shaping the front page content, click on things that interest you and scroll past those that don't. It's that simple.



    P.S. Also, before Last Man Standing, how long had it been since a prime time show featured amateur radio?! I thought that was a pretty cool thing. Maybe it's just me...

    One of the biggest shows of the last few years has been Stranger Things, Season 3 episode 1 was streamed almost 20 million times in just the first 3 days it was released! How many kids and young adults are watching last man standing, probably less than 1 percent (the show is not geared toward that demographic)but most of those watching Stranger Things are right in the age group we keep talking about trying to lure to Ham radio. Yet all I keep seeing is last man standing like it is the only show with ties to ham radio.

    Thanks Jaime, good to see you here.

    I get tired of explaining over and over again that I, and other posters to these forums, have zero control over what does and doesn't get posted to the front page of QRZ. It's been said so many times, I can't even count - so that means that people either don't understand how the front page works or they choose to ignore it. Either way, I do thank you and the other Mods for the work you do on these pages.

    Feel free to interview someone from the show or just write an editorial about the show and it’s ties to Ham Radio. I’ll post it front and center as long as your post has some substantial content and an engaging graphic or photo. Looking forward to it!
    I can only post what I receive.

    I think LMS is popular in the ham community because there is an actual base station that the crew invites operators to transmit from. I love Stranger Things, of course, amazing show but being able to operate from a TV set is a pretty cool experience. And John Amodeo does such a great job of outreach and putting together this last contest. It’s hard not to share his enthusiasm.
