I fail to see what one thing has to do with the other.

Maybe getting out of ham radio is a good thing. It will give you time to work on your grammar and other English-related skills. Smiley

Re IGW...

Well look at it this way...

IF he speaks the English Language as well as he puts together his sentences, he will not have to bother about quitting.  No one will know what he is talking about in the first place.

Spelling, punctuation and grammar are not requirements of ham radio. Obviously compassion for ones fellow man is not a prerequsite either.

Stay on the air Jackie.  I read some of your stuff on your website (I don't even have my own website) and it looks like you've worked very hard to get your General and you have a nice station.  Keep working for that Extra and don't let the world get ya down.

<< Spelling, punctuation and grammar are not requirements of ham radio. >>

No, but they are essential to expressing one's self in a coherent and understandable manner - and posting on eHam is not ham radio. Smiley

<< Obviously compassion for ones fellow man is not a prerequsite either. >>>>

As for compassion. I'm as compassionate as the next person, but from the post I can't tell whether his dad made him quit or whether he quit because he's in a snit because his dad didn't want him traveling in what the dad thought was an unsafe vehicle. See what I mean about expressing himself in a coherent and understandable manner?

I'm not sure what I am supposed to be "compassionate" about. Quitting ham radio is not the end of his life. I quit ham radio after high school, but I didn't cry about it and ask for either understanding or compassion. Life goes on.

I just looked at his web page.

I thought this was a 18 or 19 year old kid, not a 44 year old adult. At that age, why should he care whether or not his dad likes him traveling in a vehicle with 212,000 miles on it? He can't decide for himself?

I don't get it.

W3LK: "I don't get it."

Well, Rick, I'm so glad YOU do.

He is an adult who made a conscious decision to quit ham radio. Please explain what his problem is that I should be so "compassionate" about.

People quit ham radio every day for a variety of reasons.
