Trevor VK0TH reports today that future activities whilst he is on Macquarie Island are in doubt after very bad operating was apparent thisd morning. Trevore reports;
Operator behaviour has become a problem. JA and EU stations constantly calling over other stations, don’t hear or jam and have turned a fun hobby into a stressful environment. I worked over 200 JA stations today (13/14 January) and when sending “NO JA” in the call it all got very ugly.
I will be QRT for the next few days while I re-evaulate how much radio I will continue doing while on Macquarie Island and how it is done. My apologies to those that wanted VK0/M. I can’t see this behaviour changing and I’m not willing to spend my free time doing something that is no longer fun. My apologies, Trevor.
You shouldn’t be the one who has to apologise Trevor!
