I recently got back on the air last summer after 16 years off due to some life changing event. At any rate, digital mode is where I spent my time on right. 80% of mine on air time now is FT8. I also recently moved from HOA restriction to “put up anything you want” property. With previous QTH with restriction I managed to worked many stations and many bands, all good. Now moving to the new place with some real antennas. I often got a replies “WRK B4 and or NO DUP” and these were from non-DX and DX alike busy band or not. Kind of funny, a station would spend time sending the free message like “WRK B4 and or NO DUP” but yet simply refused to make a contact worthwhile. For the life of me I can not understand or even pretending that I understand. Some people to moved, new radios or new antennas or simply lost of logging database. What had happened to “see you down the log” or “hope to see you again on the band”? I have worked DX station on another mode, they are happy to see you on the band and chat again. I do too. Digital on the other hand they made it sound like I am wasting 1 min out of their lives. Contests, real busy or a big pileup I dig it but normal ordinary situation – I just don’t get it. I guess you made up “your” rule I can only respect that. I probably going have some flame throwing at here but I am just trying to understand. We are HAM should we keeping in touch? Of Bam Wham thank you ma’am and never see you again? 73, Kit PS, I will work anybody anytime and any reason.
