Let's try using the polls feature for something amateur radio related.


@M0YNG I have, but I found it deathly dull. You can rattle off technical QSOs over and over without exchanging a meaningful conversation - just call, grid square, report.

It doesn't feel like communication - technically it fulfills the minimum requirement of a QSO as in a signal has been sent and received at both ends but it lacks the human touch.

I mean, you could be talking to a bot and never know it...

@santiago @M0YNG I am sure there are people who leave it running and go to work.

@M0YNG @iona Have you tried JS8Call? It’s an extension of the protocol for people who want to actually communicate.
