• Not very interactive?

    Crikey, for a ham related chat group, there's not a lot of interaction.
    Is it just that there are so few users?

    Thanks

    I sort of wondered the same thing. I would post more myself but I don't have much to say at the moment.

    There are interactions.. We were just
    recently talking about packet radio, as
    I recall. DOVEnet isn't the most active
    message net, though. There's probably
    slightly more posting on like Fido or
    FSX.. but if you want more active
    chats, come to #hamradio on Libera
    IRC network (irc.libera.chat). There
    are hams from all over the world there.

    ANY hobby...whether the BBS, ham radio, or something else...should NEVER
    take priority over things like church, health, family, job, or especially "honey-do's". Otherwise, that new rig you have your eye on for your birthday
    or Christmas, may be going back to the candy store (hi hi).

    I also tell folks if you have something going on at the time of a traffic net...such as:

    1) Medical Emergency (call 911!)
    2) Weather Emergency (get to the storm cellar)
    3) Family Meal (that is quality time)
    4) Another net you have to run or check into (too many nets, too little time)

    Do NOT worry about checking into a net. For the first 2, if you don't take the appropriate action, it may be the last thing you do before you become a Silent Key.

    I'm on the air only when I do my nets. While I like ragchews, sked requests for me are few and far between.
