    I have basically said all I am going to say about contests. I have a feeling I don't want to know what "IB4BSCACA" means. In looking at your profile I admire your respect for your dad. That says a lot about you that you give him credit.

    1. I told you "in before Burt starts complaining about contests AGAIN."

    2. But more importantly, did you notice the funny little smiley at the end? What that means is, "I am JOSHING YOU!" :)

    I never notice those. The key to the man in earnest is the man in jest.

    Congrats!

    I’m going to take a run at them soon. I don’t really need Easter Island (except on 160, but my antenna still needs some work), so I don’t want to clog the pileups when others who do need them are trying. Once things die down a little, we’ll see.

    That would be new to me. I better get to looking for them. Oh, spotting network, where are they now :D

    All? Never again? Hmmmm....

    I'm guessing it's just for now, in this particular thread until the next time someone expresses having fun doing contests :)

    Well Dave, one thing I’ve learned around here over the last few years is that absolute declarations like that one rarely last for very long.

    There are those that didn’t really mean it literally.
    There are those who just can’t help themselves.

    And I’ll give you 3:2 odds that merely for making this observation, I will be accused of picking on someone. :p:p

    I should have been more specific and referred to the character of contesters, usefulness and honesty I will no longer comment on. Although I will say after listening ATC communication and the number of times they need repeats if some of them were contesters they would hear it right the first time.
