Just a little whinge that has been annoying me a bit lately and this is no reflection on the superb service that I have received during any of my own activations.
Maybe it’s my imagination but I have noticed a growing trend towards stations working an activator, then not spotting him/her.
2m seems to be the worst hit, where I have sometimes heard as many as 7 or 8 stations work an activator but not spot them, the same can be said for HF, both SSB and CW, with the exception of 60m, which is instantly spotted most of the time.
So come everyone, if you hear a /P station, get the spot on them straight away, even if you haven’t worked them yourself, don’t be afraid of missing them if a pile up starts, you will get them in the end.
Sorry to moan, but it has been bugging me for some time now.
