I think the Winmor discussion, should stay on that reflector.

Let me say this 1st...I am not trying to start something!!
Nor is this is a flame.
IMHO..and thats what it is... "attended station" is not just
being at home,,,, Asleep-Mowing the yard,,,clearing snow..etc..
"attended" is sitting at the radio.
I am already hearing complaints of Winmor stations QRM'ing
ongoing QSO's..and have been QRM'ed myself on 80 meters.
We are creating enemies by running Winmor outside of the
I think Winmor(in what ever use, BPQ, RMS, etc) is going to
be a GREAT mode and will be used alot, but as with unattended
Pactor stations outside the auto-subbands, it makes for alot
of bad press.
I support ALL digi modes and think they ALL have a strong
future in AR...but QRM is something nobody likes.
My plans are to set my Winmor/BPQ station up and leave running
24/7(once I find a used radio to dedicate to it).
This is not a bash on Pactor,Winmor, Packet,RTTY, BPSK31,ALE400
or ANY MODE!!!
I just dont want our progress to be marred(sp?) by bad press,,,
and...We are already getting a little...and it will get
much worse as more stations run 24/7 outside the auto sub-bands.
Please do not flame me for this... Just tell me what ya'll think.
