I was wishing that that type of ignorance didn't exist in our hobby ... but I've been called an "optimist" (as well
as several other things ... (grin)).
I was on the organizing committee for a local hamfest a few years ago, and actually ran into a similar
sentiment. The "powers-that-be" desired the 'fest's station to be all-HF. When I pointed out that that
was discriminatory, elitist, and not in the best interests of furthering amateur radio to the masses,
But I wasn't asked to be on the committee the next year ...
And so it goes.
