When I see something like this, whether it be on Facebook, Twitter or some other social media platform, I just have to smile to myself.
The guys gets 26 comments. mostly from Amateur Radio operators who understand propagation, how it works and that QRP doesn't necessarily mean "weak signal".
So what does he do?
He turns off commenting for the post.
Kind of like throwing a smoke bomb into a room, yelling "fire" and then running away. I wonder what he was thinking?
I think the internet definition of a person like this is "troll".
He'd be much better served by doing a little research, maybe get to know what he's bashing and then seeing if his preconceived ideas actually hold water. This is the same reason why I won't jump on the FT8 bashing bandwagon. Even though it's not my cup of tea - there's a ton of folks out there who seem to enjoy it and get a kick out of it. Just because it doesn't tickle my fancy and I don't see the big attraction - I'm not about to put them down or tell them they shouldn't be having fun doing what they're doing.
Amateur Radio is a big enough tent under which we can all have fun.
