Tell someone that they have tomato sauce on their face, and sooner or later, someone will take offense that you're making a derogatory remark about their character and/or background because they ate something from an Italian cuisine for lunch.
It makes as much sense as if they were talking in Ishkabibil (Sid Ceaser, where are you when we need you?) There's nothing you can do about someone who's determined to pick a fight or take offense. This sounds like one of those cases. 73 -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Jim Reisert AD1C Sent: Saturday, December 16, 2006 4:59 PM To: email@example.com Subject: [DX-CHAT] Some hams just don't get it Saturday morning the VU7 was on 14260 listening up. A KP4 ham and someone else were trying to have a QSO on the frequency, they must have been asked to move when the VU7 showed up. I didn't hear that part of the conversion, but I heard one of the "chatters" say something like, 'We were probably asked to move because we were talking Spanish, so people must assume we are illegal immigrants.' The logic here escapes me. But both parties could have done better: - the Spanish-speaking folks were chatting on the international IOTA calling frequency. Surely there was a better place to have a ragchew. - whoever tried to move them off the frequency probably didn't explain about the IOTA frequency, VU7 being weak, listening for North America, etc. Just something to think about... 73 - Jim AD1C -- Jim Reisert AD1C, 7 Charlemont Court, North Chelmsford, MA 01863 USA +978-251-9933, <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, http://www.ad1c.us Subscribe/unsubscribe, feedback, FAQ, problems http://njdxa.org/dx-chat To post a message, DX related items only, firstname.lastname@example.org This is the DX-CHAT reflector sponsored by the NJDXA http://njdxa.org Subscribe/unsubscribe, feedback, FAQ, problems http://njdxa.org/dx-chat To post a message, DX related items only, email@example.com This is the DX-CHAT reflector sponsored by the NJDXA http://njdxa.org
