    What's down?
    Renewing several times daily every time new posts pop up?
    We don't have as much members at over at qrz so what do you expect?

    It's this thing called "Summer". People are outside. I'm stuck at a PC right now, and I'm killing time.

    And I'm waiting on some hardware to finish the radial system on my 160m T antenna.

    The only activity that seems to be slower is in the Political forum, no loss. Everything else seems to be equally as fast or slow paced (whichever you prefer) as it has always been. At least in the five years that I have been here. Aside from when a random topic of interest becomes popular for a few days and people live in front of their keyboard.

    Also, as was already stated, it is summer. I know for many online activity is much like on air activity. It is decreased in the warmer months as people go on vacation or simply stay outside for longer periods.

    This place has always been more of an underground rave than a mainstream discotheque.

    Statistically, we're only off by a small margin in terms of active posts. And as for the volume of traffic, we have increased every month for the last 2 years.

    To me it seems that activity shifts from time to time. Or rather its focus. It is normally noticed more easily by those that contain their activity to one or two boards. Just what I have noticed.

    Seems okay to me. All the important stuff seems to get pretty well covered, even some of the not so important stuff. All in all, it's all good, y'all.

    We've been off to the races (Friday) and running errands/visiting friends in Columbus (Saturday) in addition to the usual hectic summer schedule and I'll wager lots more folk find themselves in this spot.

    Things will pick up come fall, major contest time or perhaps when a major event occurs and people want to discuss it amongst their peers. After all, most Islanders seem to be pretty active - not the normal "ham" by any stretch. We pursue life outside the shack too. ;)

    There has been a marked slowdown, and more people leaving.
