I often just peak at various nets on Netlogger (which I love). Often I have no intention of checking in unless I see a QTH or person I am interested in working. Or, just curious about what is going on. I usually don't have time to be on hours-long nets but sometimes check-in near the end if I am interested. The problem I have is often will "lurk" on netlogger and all of a sudden the NC may say "Hi Dave, glad to have you!"... Huh? Sometimes I will use AM to say don't have time to check in just lurking. Question: Doesn't the NC have to actively use the "monitors" button to see us, lurkers? Or are some NC so desperate for check-ins they keep checking that? Is there any way to set up a separate account maybe as ANON when I want to secretly lurk? It doesn't seem so and would want to switch back to my real call if I really want to check-in. Netlogger has a neat prior net feature. However, it seems not all nets are shown. For example, I often monitor (and sometimes check-in as a participant) in HHH net. But its prior nets do not show up in the prior history section. I have tried each server. A bit confused about the "merge" button it doesn't seem to merge so I checked each server separately.
