Time to call it a day

QRZ.com has just come back online after another lengthy server outage. Scanning the forums I came across this lengthy personal attack on me by 2W0UZO over postings I made about the ROS digital mode several months ago in this blog.

I thought about how to respond but I decided I could not be bothered to dignify his diatribe with a reply. However it has given me cause to reflect on why I bother writing this blog when it seems that no matter how hard I try to explain the reasons why I hold a particular opinion the usual response from the other side is that I am “against innovation”, “against new licensees” or whatever stereotypical old-fart criticism they wish to label me with.

Jeff KE9V has decided to pack in ham radio blogging. I think I’ll follow his example. Just think how much more time I’ll have to actually do things with the radio.
