Ge all:
Is the 80 meter net at 18:30 central time?
I saw Wayne's post, and since he can't attend, I will give it a shot.

Nothing here but QRN. Tried calling and thought I might have heard a very faint station but well below noise level.

Good afternoon all,
I will be unavailable for NCS duty this evening. If someone else could step in that would be grand, if not then get on the air and have fun with a "round table" or some-such. Anyway, have a great time.

I guess I live a charmed life with a good and
conscientious USPS

delivery person. I get a LOT of USPS packages, and for
those that do

not fit in my large mailbox (at the end of a 3/4 mile
unpaved private

road), he will drive down my 1/4 mile driveway and deliver
the package

to my front door. I could not expect better service.

I do reward him every holiday season with a cash gift and a
jar of the

XYL's jam. I do not have a paved road into the
subdivision, and the

postman is quite prompt.



Perhaps I am in the minority, but I could not expect better
service from

USPS.



UPS is also great for me. The driver comes to the door and
if I am

away, he leaves the parcels - I do have a "driver
release" in place with

UPS, so that is possible except when my customer requests a
'direct

signature'.



FedEX is also good, but most FedEx deliveries I receive
require a direct

signature which can be inconvenient since the XYL and I go
out for

errands and lunch about the time the deliveries happen.
That means I

have to get the "delivery slip" and wait until the
next day for the

actual delivery. FedEx does not offer me a "driver
release" like UPS does.



A lot of the problems with USPS and UPS for those in remote
addresses

depends on the local carrier and how much he/she is willing
to do for

their customers. The UPS driver also gets a Holiday gift
along with my

thanks for his service.

I live 1.2 miles off the state maintained roads here on Bald
Top

Mountain in Alexander County, NC on a asphalt paved road
maintained by

all the homeowners in the subdivision paying $20 per month
for road

maintenance and when I get a package that won't fit in
the mailbox the

postman leaves me one of those brown slips of paper to pick
it up at the

post office which is a 14 mile round trip. I contacted the
Postmaster

and ask him couldn't the courier drive 1.2 miles off his
route to

deliver my package rather than make me drive 14 miles to get
it and he

said, no, that it's their policy that the mail courier
isn't allowed to

alter their regular route by more than ½ mile! My first
thought when he

said that was it's no wonder the USPS runs in the red
every single year!

It certainly isn't customer service oriented!

I will admit to having some bias here since my son works for the USPS.

I don't understand why anyone complains about USPS for SENDING anything. Using them is totally optional. You are perfectly free to send each and every one of your letters, QSL cards, etc. via FedEx, United Parcel, DHL, etc.

USPS drives down my .5 mile driveway to deliver any package that requires signature or that will not fit in box.  Not had a problem since I started giving Christmas fruitcake.  An occasional platter from Foodlion hand delivered to the PO doesn’t hurt.

I live 1.2 miles off the state maintained roads here on Bald Top Mountain in Alexander County, NC on a asphalt paved road maintained by all the homeowners in the subdivision paying $20 per month for road maintenance and when I get a package that won't fit in the mailbox the postman leaves me one of those brown slips of paper to pick it up at the post office which is a 14 mile round trip. I contacted the Postmaster and ask him couldn't the courier drive 1.2 miles off his route to deliver my package rather than make me drive 14 miles to get it and he said, no, that it's their policy that the mail courier isn't allowed to alter their regular route by more than ½ mile! My first thought when he said that was it's no wonder the USPS runs in the red every single year! It certainly isn't customer service oriented!

Not my experience here in CNY. Helpful, friendly, deliver promptly via ebay, Amazon, and qrz sales.

In 59 years, I've never had a bit of problem with the USPS. Complaining about the Post Office is merely conventional, like men complaining about their wives. It's ritualized discontent. If you're good at playing it up, you can successfully run for office.

Don't really think this is an issue with USPS, but with the thinking behind Check ID.
Thinking that "Check Id" deters thief is a little out dated. If someone steals your
wallet, they have your Id. Signature verification is a possible reason, but I can order
online without a signature. More and more, entering your zip code seem to requested.
Maybe next step will be finger print or eye scans. j/k

How about the guy on the phone at check out snapping a photo of your credit card
or the nice young lady at the restaurant taking your card? There are all kinds of risks.
How about paying with cash? Oh, that's right, we're a cashless society.

I think it is a disservice to bad mouth the USPS and worker for doing their job.

Maybe the discussion should be about "Check Id" vs "signed" instead?

Not posting to debate the various issues of USPS or how we use our credit card.

Would rather see post about Ozarkcon, SOTA, etc.
