Seems like there's a podcast or you tube for everyone now. Everybody is into the look at me and listen to me thing. Reviews up the cazoo! (And all scientifically accurate and complete). A scroll down the QRZ front page is loaded with useless stuff (No, I am not complaining about QRZ). It just seems like we're so involved with ourselves and our advancements and goings-on that some of the luster has tarnished. I'd like to see some true human interest stuff...not awards...expeditions...triple or quad computer setups...super stations and multiple 100' rotating towers. Down to Earth common folk interest material. Anyone else have an opinion? (Duhhh) Just curious if it's me or not. And before you go...I think I am the most important contributor and here's why...blah...blah...blah. I must do a video now...
FLQ: You forgot 12 band equalizers! LOL Thanks for insights.

There certainly seems to be more immature in amateur radio - I liken it to those with little taste that take a perfectly good car and ruin it with lashings of tacky accessories.

The equivalent in amateur radio is - excessive numbers of LCD monitors, nasty little auto ATUs, studio mics, boom mounts and radios that look like a kiddies games console.

They imagine form within their delusional world that anyone that doesn't follow this trend in a sheep like fashion is somehow envious of them.

However, it can be said with certainty those that do follow this fashion are highly likely to be of a similar disposition to people that call themselves Dave.

Ah yes, forgot about the equalizers (parametric of course), Dang!

Everybody knows Mary Ann was the better CW op.

50' of RG-174 at 14 MHz has 1.7 dB of loss. RG-58 has 0.85 dB. The difference of 0.85 dB is not enough to make me backpack the extra weight of RG-58.

At 28 MHz the difference is only 1.2 dB.

So this net is run by dxers on the US East coast?  Which net is that?  I have thought that DX nets are a dying breed.

You can look at it a little differently.  The DX Op wishes to work people on a list so we should all respect his wish.

The day you work VQ9 for a new one you will forget all about this post.

I went from #10 USA last year in the ARRL 160, to something like #35 USA this year, with a very similar effort and score. So my conclusion: Everybody else but me, is doing better on 160M

I have an 80-10 OCF dipole that will tune on 160 and for the first time in 6 years I worked the ARRL 160 contest and had a ball.

I saw on 3830 reflector that half a dozen stations worked clean sweeps.

Tim do you know if this is unusually high and would it indicate exceptionally good conditions?

I take two each lengths of RG 174 with me when I take my compact QRP station with me. One length is 25 feet and the second length is 10 feet long. Most of the time 10 and 15 meters is dead. I really focus on 20 and 40 meters. I get my RG 174 from,  "Cables on Demand."
They have a nice boot on the back of the BNC's to help support the wire which put less stress on the center conductor. None have failed
so far. Depending on how much I want to carry for the day, I also have numerous lengths of RG 58 and RG 8X.
Bottom line, don't be afraid to use RG 174 but have some RG 8X around just in case.

Not really. For me here in the big city, I'm hearing mainly locals, I did copy Tom last night on 1831.0 briefly

I don't know about 160m but 80 has been amazing. Worked 3B9HA yesterday afternoon at 4:30pm my local time in broad daylight. He was booming in like a freight train.
