Well, if you feel that way, then you should certainly leave, as the hobby isn’t living up to your expectations. And only you can decide that.
I don’t see the Part 15 hobby, or amateur radio, the same way you do. Yes, there are some self-serving egos out there (the Transmitter Challenge defence/aftermath comes to mind) but they’re in the minority, as well as the Forums and websites that feed those egos. For the most part, on this particular Forum and in the ALPB, I just see a number of people who want to help each other, as well as newcomers to Part 15. And my dealings with people in amateur radio have always been enjoyable.
You just have to ignore the crap and the idiots – I used to have a sign in my office that read ‘Don’t Let The Turkeys Get You Down’.
