I received this e-mail after the ten meter contest, no comments necessary.
You have a great signal here in va.
I tried for a HALF HOUR to call you ands there are so many RUDE ops on the air
that I will not likely take part in any more arrl contests.
I could not get through so finally just quit, I would have like to have given you a few points,
and said hello: but I guess idiot's just do not care.
may desire to use hf, just got lessened. so much for the HI quality of ham radio.
Sorry to hear that we missed your call. This happens a lot in a contest. We normal
listen for everyone but usually the strongest gets through. The ARRL contest are
a lot of fun so they are very popular. A lot of stations will be on the air and this does
make things chaotic at times.
I also called stations that couldn't get my call, mostly in Europe. I find it best to try
again after a little while, sometimes the band changes and they get your call right
away, sometimes not.
I hope you will try a contest again. You might try talking to someone in your area
that is a contester and ask what might help your results.
If you are around next weekend we should try a sked. Let me know and we can set
up a time and freq.
