SILLY POSTS

    OK, so maybe I should just turn red with laughter by myself, but I just couldn't resist sharing with you some of the silliest logger posts I have ever seen. If you think you have troubles on 50 MHz, just think what it is like for these folks... and no, I didn't adulterate the spelling...
    Take for example this fellow, who upon seeing Australian stations working each other on the logger one morning (with an SFI of around 90) posts:
    Nov17 12:40 im Listining for austrila on 50.125Mhz im in Usa in grid sq EM40

    Ok, not too funny, huh? Well, how about this guy during a good November aurora:
    Nov22 22:44 Annoying CW that sounds like someone coughing on .125 again


    Still not getting it? How about this informative post:
    Nov23 16:57 Just turned on the radio monitoring .125 in and out all day


    Whew, glad I wasn't listening on 50.130... Oh, back to the subject at hand...speaking of LSD...:
    Dec05 20:07 hc8gr/b weak now ...no signal but can still hear it


    Boy, wish I could have heard it too...
    Mar14 21:27 oa4b/b no signal but I can hear it


    Do I detect a pattern here?..... Oh, it musta wore off. OK, how about this guy, who posts his illegal CQ?
    [email protected] 50100.0 KDxZYV sending usb cq in tx, usa 2221 14 Mar


    This one is ok with me, though propagation sometimes helps...
    Jan04 20:22 kgxrwo from fn 20 is calling cq to Florida el96 ok


    My personal favorite for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is that my call is N3 something......
    Jan17 18:25 LIDS doing CW on 50.125 again. 5x9 here. Call is W4 something.


    This Missouri station is on his period at least twice a week.
    .                                                                                                       (64-48-129-42-stl-01.cvx.algx.net 64.48.129.42)


    A report of 1/5 means the station is totally unreadable with fairly good signals... How did he possibly pull the guy's callsign out?
   Jan11 01:28 KB9EJ 1/5 into DM33 50.135 DE [call redacted] DM33


    OK, he is readable with considerable difficulty with fairly good signals... but "weak?"
   Feb01 22:24 W4S??? EL96 3x5 weak into EN63 50.129


    I am intrigued by this new propagation mode...
   Apr24 21:03 I even listened for meter scater wednesday and thursday night nothing


    Thus far, this string of posts (from the same station) takes the Silly-Posts Of The Year Award for most confused 50MHz operator...
