    Amateur Radio Forum - Help needed

    The original idea of Amateur Radio was to experiment, communicate and self-educate. It seems to me that the contemporary Amateur Radio has lost all of these goals. We are focused on DXpeditions, entities, points and commercially made equipment. DXpeditions are popular, but they usually leave trace only in the LoTW or shoeboxes, filled with colourful postcards, routinely printed in Ukraine or Bulgaria. Communication is limited to "five-nine" or "5NN". DXpeditions are usually very efficient but they last for several days and the propagation conditions might be at ebb just then. One local active radio operator is better than several short-time visitors because he or she can be active 365 days a year.
