The question I have is when do we just get back to a simple radio experience? Do we really want to import all the problems of modern computers into our radio systems? I spent many years in the computer business as a tech installing and fixing computers and the networks/businesses they served. Or at least they were supposed to serve them. I will not go back to that constant set of ongoing, mysterious, gotta fix it properly right away problems.
One year ago I decided to seriously learn CW. I successfully had tried FT8 for a while but longed for a simple carrier wave going out the back of my transceiver to an antenna that can be a lot of fun. In the midst of common problems with working computer/transceiver interactions do you ever long for a return to simple radio? It is still available to all of us.
By the way, I think you are all great to help people resolve these complex, multi-step issues. For me, at least for now, my K3s is just humming along. Not that I would never need help, you guys are the best.
