That it is in Spanish?
Howdy, TowerTalkians --
I recently sent a TowerTalkian and the list a terse email that was the
culmination of a series of incidents. In this case the poster was carrying
on a what looked like a private conversation on TT about his problem. I
asked him that a private conversation (of little or no value to the other
2000 members) should be done off list. He then proceeded to carry on another
obviously private conversation IN SPANISH on the reflector which was only of
interest to him and the other party. I took that as a slap in the face and
sent off the aforementioned email.
Everyone on TT, in spite of members from a dozen or more countries that
are not native English speakers, has used English on the reflector (and ham
radio in general) as the "official" language and that seems to work just
I appreciate the fact that mostly members act like adults and we're
way ahead of other special interest reflectors that seem to be mostly pissing
contests between members. TT is a terrific resource and I'm glad that it
works so well for it's members. Thanks to all.
