Regular readers of this blog and perhaps the Radcom column may remember that Mark, G4MEM and I collaborated on producing some contest calendars for mobile phones.
Yesterday, I received a delightful e-mail from Tom, G3HGE;
"Many thanks for your invaluable item on Contest Calendars On Your Mobile Or
The Web . This has got to be the best thing since sliced bread and beats CW
SKIMMER hands down .
At a touch , one can see the exact time to switch off , lock the shack door
.and do something useful while the number crunchers enjoy themselves . I had
a look at THOSE DAMNED CONTESTERS HAVE RUINED HAM RADIO , Oh dear !! .
It used to be such a nice uncomplicated HOBBY ."
It just shows that whatever you produce ends up being used in a different way! Enjoy your non-contests!
