    And I thought I was a pedantic quibbler.

    That's just CQ on 2M. Relax.

    I specifically read it and it doesn't say that.

    It would allow WB data and ACDS in those segments, but does not disallow other modes. Why is everyone acting like it does? What am I missing here?

    I understand, somewhat, the objections to Tech phone and I think it's mistaken too, in that I'd give them data on HF. That's what will get people interested in HF these days, not SSB.

    Millennials use words like "basically" to stall for time while they try to remember the politically correct talking points given to them by their Gender Studies professors. Here's an example of millennial-babble stall words in action. How many do you recognize? "So yeah like actually it's kinda basically like racist so like OK Boomer you're just like ignorant soooo......" (Add up-talk inflections and vocal fry as desired.)

    When someone tells me "OK BOOMER" I reply with "OK Momma's BASEMENT BABY or OK BASEMENT BOY".See below and check out NJ...

    Bingo. I was interviewing one of these guys once. He really knew it all.....about everything.

    His cell phone ring during the interview, and he asked me to "hang on a minute - It's a political action group and I really need to take this".

    "No worries' I told him, I got up, left the room, and told HR the interview was over.

    It's gotta be tough being perpetually at the center of the universe. ;)

    BTW, this thread is going on 5 freakin years ! Wasn't considering it then, not considering it now. :):)
