Flames !!! and Quacks
Lets start by making a class for US over 70's 12 hrs or so, I like the
rates but just too many hours of digging for me. Sunday is the PITTS
with a loss every year of CW ops. There sure doesn't seem to be many
new calls showing up and with the 30 to 35 WPM standard with some over 40
I think I know why.
I only had one station ask for QRS ??? on doing 30 at the time.
Maybe allowing contacts on other band s would help but us OBoys need more
Sleep ( beauty rest for some No Help here ).
