RE: FM operations in RS downlink



Vince,

Do you have a workable solution to the problem of the "easy to get"
restructured licenses?  One that will keep up some interest in a dying
hobby?  One that will fill the ranks with youth and enthusiasm rather than
hostility and angst?  One that will, at the very least, replace the long
lists of silent keys we see every month in QST?  One that will allow
pictures in like publications to show hams other than those far into their
retirement years?  One that will encourage rather than discourage ham
wannabes? One that will prove Riley Hollingsworth wrong when he says what
will ultimately kill amateur radio is "radio rage"? Have you personally done
anything to improve things?

If you do, I'm sure the ARRL and the FCC would love to hear from you. I know
I would.  I'm sick of hearing the same old song about how the newbies with
the $10 licenses are killing the hobby.  It ain't them you hear on certain
frequencies swearing, jamming, tuning up on nets, etc, it is the ones that
are whining the loudest about the hobby going to the dogs because of the
restructuring.

It's going to get worse as more and more people get their hands on easy to
get restructured licenses.  It won't do any good, but fire a complaint off
to the ARRL. They're supposed to working to improve things, or so they say.
