Ed, don't give up on ham radio based on a remark from one person on one repeater. My suggestion is to enjoy the hobby! Try a different repeater, or maybe some of the simplex frequencies. Get involved in a local ham club, Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES), SKYWARN, or some of the local VHF/UHF nets. You might try some of the UHF repeaters, or maybe VHF/UHF SSB. There's plenty to do on the amateur bands, and if voice communications sours you, consider some of the digital modes--PSK-31, for instance. 73, Ron Hranac, N0IVN
