Only one was rhetorical. Only one. The last one. I am the one that decides which question is rhetorical.
Believe me, if I wanted to cause you stress, I would use other methods.
You have an inaccurate meter.
Passive aggressive insult noted.
There it goes again:


Fine, fine, it's not worth it.
Let us know when you find out something about disaster preparedness/management.

That presupposes I currently know nothing about the subject, which would be an incorrect assumption.

Thanks for your opinion,
and have a nice day. Wink

I have noticed there a number of hams here that not only seem to take great glee in that hams may not be needed quite as much to help with emergency communications, but actually deride them for doing so.

I don't understand. Deriding people for trying to help others.

Example?

Look no further then the ARPA *Amateur Radio Parity Act) forum for examples.

AFAIK it's not you, Bill. Certain others hand out the personal insults and stir the pot.

Why not just set up COWS on drones or aircraft?  They could put them over the most devastated areas!!

Looks like Google has the same idea.

"According to the Federal Communications Commission, 82 percent of cell phone sites in Puerto Rico and 58 percent in the US Virgin Islands remain out of service due to the hurricane."

Three weeks ...

the way i look at it is there are a bunch of people in trouble and we radio operators have a skill set that can help restore some order to the chaos.  being a responsible adult we shoudl all do what we are able to do to make that happen.  if you can handle traffic good, if you can put up antennas good, if  you can use the skills that we work on in some fashion to help get these people through this with minimal loss of life and property good.

There are two types of people in this world. One looks around, determines what
needs to be done and sets about doing it. The other, well they grouse about
anything that is done because they do not see a realistic solution. The important
thing is to go forward. While it may not meet other's expectations and some
will be indignant you will have the satisfaction of knowing you put your best
foot forward. Ignore the naysayers. They would likely complain about a colonoscopy.

I don't know of anyone who would look forward to that. OTOH, the expression I recall is, they would "complain if they were lynched with a NEW rope".
