Re: How about DXCC honor Roll for everyone

Charles, exactly what is on the table that will stop youth from operating a remote station????  And working DXCC.  You have made an allegation, back it up.  It is getting tiresome seeing some join this conversation without the facts.

Everyone,

Maybe it would be a good idea to invest some of your time in something that will help this hobby (e.g. helping youth), instead of trying to destroy something that helps youth. If you haven't noticed this, every youth that has responded to this thread has shown how remote stations have helped them. I don't see why you would be trying to tear down something so vital to this hobby? Remote operating opens the hobby up to everyone, not just those with lots of space, money, and time.

Ham radio will die as a hobby if we don't encourage youth.

Ben and Val,


You do realize that it still takes effort and skill to earn a DXCC via a remote right? It’s not like getting a subscription to a remote radio service comes with a free DXCC and honor roll, that would be crazy. Oh and the superstations comments, why don’t we ban everyone who uses over 10w and anything better than a dipole 15ft off the ground? Isn’t that what you want? To level the playing field?

Respectfully,
Jack KD9OPV
