As the the march of progress moves ever forward it is important that we, as a community, take the time and effort to maintain relevancy in this modern age. As such, I believe that it is time we reevaluated the name of our collective organization. Below you’ll find a poll with my proposed replacement for Summits on the Air. Other suggestions welcome!
Peaks don’t need no geeks!
I’ve never found a geek in amateur radio, just good intelligent wise people what have the ability and social graces to respond well to others and offer assistance where necessary.
Maybe if you live in North America. Otherwise, not.
I have no desire to be identified as a “geek”.
Wikipedia: “The definition of geek has been used as slang with different connotations, including as an affectionate label. However, this doesn’t mean that the term is meaningless or has lost its meaning over time. It remains mostly a derogatory term used to label people unfairly and offensively. Not a friendly and affectionate compliment about somebody’s personality, but a hurtful insulting form of invalidation or emotional abuse.”
