Why does everyone assume I'm anti-digital? I'm not.. I'm anti-INTERNET! It's bollocks, and it's killing the hobby.

Ha it isn't at all.....My HF gets the same stick as it did before and I rarely use my hotspot more of being a nosey bigger to be honest.
Those that enjoy RF radio will put it first those that just like a chat may wander off to Digi more just like those that use CB radio constantly and use amateur radio as a second best....People will do what they want if they prefer Digi voice more I for one don't care :D crack on.

It's not about digi voice or not. What mode people use is irrelevant. It's just not radio.

Picture this, if only for a moment, you switch your favorite SSB transceiver on, have a tune around the band say 40 metres and hear nothing more than a few weak CW stations so you decide to call CQ on LSB and you get a reply, congratulations you have started a "Radio" QSO, moments later another station joins in followed by two more - holy shit you have a net going!

Computer network assisted communications is NOT radio, something you and I both agree on Dave, yet these Evangelist's continue to perpetuate such bollocks - no fun.

I don't get it. People don't become radio hams to merely talk to people. It's an interest in radio that drives them. Well.. it used to be. I can't understand what satisfaction you get from talking to someone over a completely reliable cable connection that uses no radio for the vast majority of the distance.

Lazy radio for pretend hams.. that's all it is. And THAT'S being kind.... as radio has **** all to do with it.

This forum might be "digital" and indeed "internet" based, but surely nobody is pretending it is "radio"! :)
Internet is internet, radio is radio, and God willing, never the twain will get confused! :lol:
Or as "Bones" might say in a lapse moment, "It's radio Jim, but not as we would know it, and bordering on complete bollox!"
Ban accepted.

It's not bordering on it at all. it IS complete bollox, and it will be the death of ham radio. If you can't work out why, then you don't deserve to be called a radio amateur.


Again.. ban happily accepted. This needs saying.. and saying loud. All this voice over internet is NOT RADIO!... wake up you muppets.

Well.. lets be fair.. I am obviously referring to ham radio over the internet, and not the internet itself. You're just trying to make a point for some reason only you can fathom.

It's not radio... therefore it cannot be ham radio. It's something else, and it is NOT the future of ham radio for that very reason: It.. is... not... radio.

Stop it.

Just look at it this way
You are now communicating on HRD via the internet, well this is just like that but you talk instead of typing
Like mark said, how many times have you turned HF on only to hear sweet FA, now you can talk worldwide on dstar, dmr echolink etc
The CW brigade probably said the same thing about SSB years ago when it came out
It,s the future of radio options, i dont know why you get worked up about it because radio is about communication at the end of the day
