VK0TH(Macquarie Island)がQRT


「JN4MMO's Log for DX」の記事によると、Macquarie Island(VK0/M、写真)からVK0THの運用を行なっていたTrevor Hoppsさん(VK8TH)が、QRZ.COMのVK0THのページに、下記のリリースを掲載しているそうです。

VK0TH QRT - Operator behavior has become a problem JA stations and EU stations that constantly call over other stations, don't hear or jam have turned a fun hobby into a stressful environment. I worked over 200 JA stations today (13/14 January) and when sending NO JA in the call it all got very ugly. I will be QRT for the next few days while I re-evaulate how much radio i will continue doing while on Macquarie Island and how it is done. My apologies to those that wanted VK0/M, I can't see this behaviour changing and I'm not willing to spend my free time doing something that is no longer fun. My apologies. Trevor.

#大意は、「EUとJAのオペレータのマナーが悪いため(指定無視など)、運用が大変苦痛になった(余暇を使った趣味として楽しくなくなった)。これから数日間QRTし、Macquarie Islandでの運用を継続するかどうかを考える。」と言う事のようです。日本のアマチュア無線家は、世界一マナーが良いと言われていたのですが、最近は海外の局からこう言う指摘を受けることが多くなったように思います。筆者(7J3AOZ)は、大変残念な事だと思っていますし、今回の件ではTrevorさんを気の毒に思っています。

Change to Operations - The vast majority of Operators are excellent communicators, patient and polite however the minority have made operations over the last week almost impossible. The number of contacts made this week is less than half of last week due to QRM.

Effective immediately - No longer will I list real time frequency information on my qrz.com page and I will no longer self spot on the cluster when I have limited time available. I will make a habit of 'dropping' into nets and conversations more often and will QSY when operations become difficult. Again my apologies I thought I could work through these huge pileups and bring order to the chaos. Those that haven't been involved in these sorts of pileups have all the solutions, splits, work by numbers and can't understand what is so difficult. I will post some audio samples of SSB and CW pileups and perhaps that will give you some idea.
