@Hurricaine:  So, the really, really, really old hams who started the club in the 1400's died off, the really, really old hams weren't really interested in radio, they just joined the club to hang out, so they hoarded the treasury money so the really old hams couldn't afford to buy equipment, so no one could teach the merely old hams anything, except how to link up repeaters on IRLP, so now the new hams are talking DX on linked repeaters, which is utterly terrible because Real Hams(tm) should only use HF no matter what, and the old hams are afraid to scold the new hams because they are afraid to admit how stupid they are.

If it's so terrible, why are you here?


I too was trying to figure out what he was saying.  I think you got it in a nutshell!

when the OMs get to pension age, things get tight & some things just "gotta go"

- they usually don't resign, - they just go "un-financial".
