[CQ-Contest] Amateur predators

Mark, I do not know the circumstances, so I cannot comment.

In my high school ham radio club, there were a couple of hams who were 
regularly dating a girl in the club, and later told me they considered her 
the best kept secret in high school.

The three of them were also members of the chess club, if I remember 

So were they 2 hams hitting on another ham, or 2 chess club members hitting 
on another chess player?  Or just 2 guys in high school behaving as their 
sexual proclivities led them to behave?

I think the comments about the relative safety of the ham radio community vs 
the Internet, chat rooms, etc, is probably right on the mark.

73, and I have enjoyed your commentary on the reflecter on many occasions. 
Many thanks for them all.

Rusty, na5tr
