Amazed

at the large amount of misinformation being passed on amateur radio concerning the Covid-19 virus. Especially locally.

Reminds me of an episode of the Any Griffith Show where a rumor was began within Aunt Bee’s group. When the rumor made the full circle, it was completely different as began. Pretty much the same occurs on amateur radio.

Too hell with public safety

the Charlotte Hamfest is going on as scheduled. The average age of today’s amateur radio licensee is 60 (+/- a few yrs), which falls right into the high risk category of the COVID-19 virus. Way to go W4BFB – Mecklenburg Amateur Radio Society, Inc., holding your subpar hamfest instead of placing the welfare and health concerns of the public first. Pathetic.
