...when the solar cycle is gone and the bands are quiet...and I no longer have to listen to the doofus's trying to talk skip on channel 19 when they know that's the main channel the drivers use...

That is all.

:D

I have more local traffic than necessary to keep me occupied...


Well I guess when the cycle winds down in a few years you will have all the local doofus's to listen to then. :D

See, I guess everyone is different...

I've done the DX thing, not my cup of tea...yeah, I've made contacts all over the US, and to Grenada and Jamaica; its not like it didn't work out. It lost its fidazzle for me after a few weeks.

I'd much rather be able to talk real time, direct to someone without wondering when I'm going to "lose conditions." Whether that be a local, or a driver...

That is the great thing about radio, there is something for everyone. I remember my CB days, if the band was closed my radio was off. I never enjoyed talking to the locals (most were AH's). I am still somewhat this way on the ham bands but I enjoy talking to the locals on the way to and from work on 440 but my real passion is contesting and working DX.
