I didn't think this was an 'English' only list serve...is it USA only as
well? Better hit the delete key now...this was bound to happen!
English speaking correspondents might want to go to the trouble to run
fellow non-English speaking ham hobbyist text through a translator site, if
they think the non-English speakers might be interested, or might benefit
from some useful information the English-only speaker has to contribute.
But, being the bone-heads we are...lets just offend the rest of the world
and show them how ignorant we can be; that we expect the rest of the planet
to speak English... The average person in Europe speaks three
languages...aren't these the same folks we build massive antennas systems to
launch our signals to; so we can get signal reports from to stoke our egos
I'm on several ham radio reflectors and often times see non-English emails.
Its not a big deal...the hobby is about communicating, isn't it? Did it say
somewhere it has to always be in English?
Ever wonder how much easier one could work DX if one responded to the DX
station's CQ in-language?
Gracias por sus comentarios ... Tom muy apreciada. Ahora espero las llamas
