I'm still around

Yeah, I know, it's been awhile. Fact is, I haven't been on the radio but a handful of times in the last few months. In fact, the most I talked on the radio was this past Thanksgiving while on the way to my in-laws for dinner.

I got on the radio a couple of days prior to that while driving home from work, but one ham whose name I won't mention seemed to think I was intruding on *his* QSO and basically snubbed me. This was after I'd stepped out of my vehicle to get gas and in the middle of a QSO with others that he apparently butted into the conversation on.

It really annoys the hell out of me when people just treat me with no respect when I've done nothing wrong to them. If I have, at least have the balls to man up and tell me to my face what it is you don't like about me...what, did I insult your mother? Take your money? Rob your life savings? B.O.?

Oh well, no sense dwelling on it...in other news, SKYWARN Recognition Day is set for this coming Friday/Saturday and once again I plan to do some overnight operating at the Morristown NWS. So if you plan to operate Friday night/Saturday morning, listen for WX4MRX on the air, chances are you might be talking to me!
