Back from a Week away
- I am back from a cruise vacation week away with
my wife and (Cub Scout) son... and see that
there has been quite a bit of reflector
traffic since my "3rd Party Trivia Pursuit"
message. Sorry about all the confusion...
but I figured we'd at least be better off knowing
about the issue. I've been grappling with it
a LOT myself.
Clearly, we should lobby for rule changes
on this subject where ever possible... As it has
been stated, this is part of the international
treaties not just USA's domestic Part 97 rules.
So where do we start?!
I LOVE getting scouts/dads on the air, and
a bunch of them (all WITH Tech Licenses)
had a Ball! working the recent ARRL
International DX Contest... only with me to find out
afterwards that I had them working a bunch of stuff we
perhaps "shouldn't" have as 3rd parties on club station
WJ0TA. Oh Well...
I'm not loosing any sleep over it. <grin>
As mentioned in "trivia"... this issue
also relates to Field Day operations etc... and
I (unofficially) doubt that this kind of thing
would ever be made a big deal of.
