... when I call CQ in CONTESTIA and start a QSO on a spacious unoccupied portion of 30 meters (10.142) and you come back to me stating I'm a lid for operating CONTESTIA when there's DX being reported on a DX Cluster.... REALLY?  Why don't you give me your callsign kind sir?  (still nothing seen on the waterfall other than my QSO and this guy)

He calls ME a lid?  He doesn't even SIGN.  If I watch the waterfall for several minutes to make sure the frequency is clear and start a QSO.. HOW AM I THE LID?

Get a life!

...your stupid macro keeps calling me "Timothy S. Cotton" - (my name as it appears in the FCC data on QRZ.com) even though I've already told you to please call me "Tim."

If I ask you what equipment your station consists of and you simply macro back
"73, Thanks for this digital contact on XX/XX/2011"

I hate when I try to get a conversation going and someone does that to me. IMO there are two reasons for this.

1. The guy can't type so all he uses are marcos to make contacts. I can understand this with foreign contacts. But when you work a fellow VE3 and this happens, LID.

2. The guy can not carry on a conversation, so he operates digital and only uses macros.

Either way, LID......................

... you answer my CQ on the exact frequency I called CQ with a CQ of your own.  If you hit the wrong button it is called the ESC key people!

I have been wanting to try Olivia and Contestia but can't ever seem to find anyone operating.  Can you tell me what frequencies you are calling CQ on for each of those two modes?  I would like to see if I can catch you on the air some time.  What time do you usually operate?

Hi Carlton

I operate Olivia on 7.072.5 and also on 3.582. Lately there has not be a lot of activity on Olivia. On 20 you can check 14,075, 14.077 and 14.106/14.108.

If you want to set up a sked for Olivia on 40 let me know.

Now that's funny right there! and you are likely 100 % correct. If they do not want to rag chew maybe they should try JT65. If all they are interested in is filling log pages that is the mode to use. I know, my log is filling up. However I like the mode because I like to see where my signal is being heard by logging onto the JT65 HF RB data site.

Once winter comes I will be getting back on Olivia for some 40/80 meter rag chews.

SCS corporation sells the PACTORIII boxes that transmit 2.4khz digital hash with no ability to listen for existing QSOs on the frequency before transmitting.

Anybody who operates this equipment on the ham bands is, by definition, a lid.

Just take it out of the box - hook it up - and you are set to be an instant lid.

- And there's a bonus!

The longer you operate this equipment - and the more QSO's you trash out - the BIGGER lid you will get to be!

All of the really big lids use SCS equipment, and so should you - if you want to be a lid.

It's easy! - ANY idiot can do it!

So, you are saying that anyone who doesn't rag chew is a LID?

Thanks, I just may take you up on that.  I'm assuming I can contact you at your email listed on qrz?  Btw, I see from your picture on qrz that you are using the FT-950....same rig I am using.
