    I apologize to people when an apology is warranted.

    You do not warrant an apology from me, Burt. So you don't get one.

    Oh, the irony.....

    Carl,

    I started this thread. Why do you have a problem with it? What's your boggle?

    btw....my call is N2EY, my name is Jim. You seem to have a real problem with both of those facts.

    Why?

    You know a thread is seriously off the rails when people start quoting Shakespeare . . .

    I'd rather hear the "HI HI" and get it over with, than to listen to the dweebs who, in a round-table net, come in on their turn fake prolonged laughing like crazy persons, to some joke that someone else told 20 minutes earlier.

    And then the thread drifted in other directions. The vast majority of posters in this thread seem to enjoy discussing the various subjects involved. Why does that bother you? Your indoor antenna not working so well? Lighten up and enjoy!

    Here's a bit of classic humor just for you:





    (Mandatory Amateur Radio Content: When Shakespeare wrote the classic "2-B or not 2-B", he was debating the merits of a vintage Drake receiver....)

    To review - you posted a question and then answered it yourself. My only comment was that observation. If you want to argue, you seem fine doing that all by yourself.

    QSL from South American stations is confusing. I always think they are from Los Angeles when they say QS LA, QS LA.

    You could be right. I'll quote Dylan Thomas and Kafka instead!;)
