Question I can't help but wonder

What ever happened to all those that used to post on this forum, only a few seem to remain?

Hi Jim,

We're still here. Just lazy and other things to do at times. I don't have an excuse. I need to be in here more.

I think most of them (including me) are still here, although they might not post as often as when they were new. I usually put up ORR at least twice a day to see what's new and if something looks interesting I'll read it or may respond to it. Others may have found other venues such as FaceBook, Twitter or EchoLink. I will usually try all of them once in a while.

I try to comment on all posts, even if all it does is add drivel to the important content. Silence/non posting will only lead to a downward spiral and the demise of the forum.
Just my idea/thought.

I think you are right Jim. I need to get my priorities in line and click on ORR first from here on. I get involved in another forum with some folks we camp with and seems to just go on and on. Got to control my time better.

ummmmm! I'm one that doesn't comment much. I sometimes feel that if I don't have something constructive to say, its best to keep my big mouth shut. However, I am diligently studying about one hour each day on the internet, studying to take the extra class test.
Lots to remember, I say!!! I am determined to do it.

Lee,
You and Chris (ke5zrt) should get together. You're both studying for the Extra exam. Good luck to both of you.

Yes, good luck to you and Chris, Lee. I wish I could get into studying for the upgrade. Just have not done it. Got the book, but not the drive.

I'm like you Jim, got the information, got the time, Just don't got the DRIVE.
Guess I'd better "Get-ER-DONE" though before they change the test and I have to start all over. (really am not sure why I NEED it though).

OH WELL !

I've got a book John. Says it's good thru 2012. If I'm going to do it I need to get with the program. I've got some friends that operate down in the Advanced portion of the band. That's the main reason I would like to have it. Other then that, I really don't know either.
