    I've personally known Rob Sherwood since 1980, and his quest for higher dynamic range receivers has certainly had an impact on the transceiver manufacturers. I first got to know him when I began modifying my Drake R-4B and R-4C, and between his extensive mods, Howard Sartori's mods, and my own, I'll still put my highly-modified R-4C up against "most" anything available today. I used to own an ICOM IC-7800, but a few rigs in my shack, including the R-4C, outperformed it when the going got really rough. For one, I simply couldn't live with the IC-7800's AGC. Having owned a Collins 75A4 (now, there's one I should have never sold!), I agree with Steve WB2WIK... great audio to listen to over long periods, as well as a Drake 2B. You simply can't beat tube audio into a decent-sized speaker for CW.

    Rob's an extremely intelligent engineer, and really knows his stuff when it comes to gain distribution throughout the design of a receiver, as well as all of the important parameters of receiver design: LO spectral purity, filter ultimate rejection, reciprocal mixing, dynamic range, et. al. It's been my pleasure knowing him for over 30 years. He and I are having lunch on Saturday at Dayton, so it should be interesting to discuss this thread with him!

    ... oh c'mon, it was a much better movie than the newer one, even if it was also a parody of the Errol Flynn one, the Disney one, and a whole bunch of other lesser ones as well... I mean, I like Kevin Costner as an actor, but couldn't he at least TRY to perform Robin Hood with an English accent throughout?
    It's a spoof.

    Costner's a great actor IMO. I might be slightly prejudiced since we eat at his restaurant about once a month and he gets us a good table.

    Only problem with Kevin's acting is he always plays himself, in some way. He really does love baseball, for example. I don't know if he could play someone who hated baseball, that would really be acting.
    What if soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish?

    I don't care what "Sherwood" thinks, I'm happy with my FT-950 and it matches my antennas quite well!
