    And that is the point... there are enough options in this hobby that we all ought to be able to enjoy whatever parts we wish. POTA is a way for myself and my daughter to have radio time together, so it will always be one of my favorites.

    Oh please! I made an ADIF (file) and sent it in as I have since it all started. I got a reject notice stating that the file wasn't named correctly and he included the "FAQ" on how to name the file. Ok, thank you very much. Maybe I am just over reacting. At least he didn't ignore it until I queried about it like our HR at work does. I submitted that W4 last year and nothing changed and I had to pay. "Oh you were serious about that paperwork? Sorry. How much did you have to pay?" Anyway I followed a rabbit down a hole. My biggest complaint about POTA is when I think I have ten contacts and thank the park staff and leave only to realize when I am logging it I only got NINE. It won't let me log the Satellite contact with my wife since the Iridium Extreme transmits and receives at 1616 Mhz which is outside the Amateur Bands.

    Hey Guys,

    I love POTA as well. The new website is fantastic.
    That took some work! In fact I made a donation to help with all that work they completed.

    We have lost our sense of humor due to the cancel mob. They cannot look at themselves so attack anyone who questions the narrative. 1MB makes a point about what's next in these things as do I. In time after all those who question get pushed out we will be left with one monotone voice. That is intolerable in a free society. I have operated from Boats/Airplanes and Unstable countries in dangerous circumstances. Don't need awards/points or recognitions. It's all self contained and I will take it with me.
    could care less if the mob gives me a nod. I guess that make us a dangerous voice in the herd. MOO.

    It is that way at work. They promote "Yes Men/women" and yell at the dissenting worker. 'Policy states you have to put it in writing' "I DON'T HAVE TO PUT ANYTHING IN WRITING! I AM THE BOSS!" The voice of dissention is not always wrong.
