    It does for me, too. There are, however, some people on here for whom that number is very important indeed.

    I just hope that discussions veer towards amateur radio and away from politics and e-peen measuring.

    Now that makes sense. I'm not enough of a computer nerd to come up with that on my own, hence my now apparent goofy statement.

    Too bad the world has to be this way.

    On edit - Plus, I don't care how many lookups a fella has, or how many likes vs post count either. I do like using the last statistic on the induhvidual in reference because I know its a point of warped personal pride for the guy. Otherwise, it matters not; but I am impressed (correctly or not) when I look up a call of an interesting station in rag chew and see tens of thousands of lookups. Makes me think that person would be interesting to converse with.

    It was the lookup number that told us that the new ARRL CEO was not active.
    It is a rough guide. Many of the ARRL female licensed employees have under 500 lookup numbers, indicates they may hold a license but not even own a rig.

    I think you're not alone. A lot of people misunderstand the intention for some of the rules.

    It's not a perfect world and neither one of us are perfect individuals. I just try to help others to understand.

    How high a number is indicative of being acceptably active? How high a number indicates that any other operator is active?
    1000, 3000, 6000, 100,000....?

    My daughter has 1500 and has not been on the air in 27 years. I would guess 3000 means somewhat active but there are many other factors. Activity can be just experimenting with technology so obviously can be misleading.

    That number for your daughter would be much lower if you hadn't brought up her abilities early in life several times a year.

    Nothing wrong with being a proud papa, but I suspect the number is inflated from where it otherwise would be.

    Lookup numbers from where? The FCC? What percentage of licensed hams are members here?
    I bet 95% of full time ARRL employees have never heard of this site. Its not a statistically valid measure.

    My lookup count is 1,000,001.

    Because I set it at 1,000,000 just now, and then looked myself up.
