too funny. Other EoTW pros and cons..

Pros:
  • You can say "73" or "73s" without someone correcting you.
  • 14.313 will be clear.
  • You will be the fastest CW key in the world
  • All the donuts are yours at the next monthly club meeting

Cons:
  • Those last WAS states will be VERY difficult.
  • QSL cards will take forever to arrive.
  • No one else is bringing donuts to the monthly meeting.

Dayton will be free since there will be no one there to collect the money  Grin
There will be plenty of parking but not much tailgating.

There will be no one at the FCC so you can make up your own call sign and declare yourself an "extra".  Grin

Here is what you should do>>>>>
 
IF you are a CONTESTER... DO NOT renew under any circumstances....

IF you are NOT a CONTESTER, you should renew a DAY AFTER the big Mayan Event.

That way, you have covered all your bases !!!!

The Mayan calendar ends at 2012 because they ran out of room on the rock and were too lazy to re-do it on a bigger rock.

actually, the rock they used was apparently roomier than the one used to develop the Gregorian calendar upon which we lazily hang our proverbial hats...

Length of the year according to modern astronomy : 365,2422 days
Length of our present, corrected Gregorian year : 365,2425 days
Length of the year according to the Maya astronomy : 365,2420 days

I think you should ask a Mayan what to do (assuming you can find one since their personal
calender ended  some time ago).

Joking aside.. I wonder how many lines for licenses and such will be impossibly long in early 2013 because people didn't renew this or that and then had to scramble to get it done when we were all still here. How many people will wait to sign business contracts? House loans? Renew their ham license? Pay bills? (Not that holding onto that money would help them if the end did come anyway but that's now how some people seem to think)

Just sayin'

Okay.. the joking can continue now.
