    When there's not much to know, it's easy to be a know it all. And as with everything else these days... if it excludes anyone, regardless of reason, it's politically incorrect. It's also taboo to bear description, or display any behavior, or apparent possession of knowlege or ability , that will make you stand out from the generic cookie cutter mass production automatons. Doing so will bring you under fire from the sentinals of the matrix.

    Myth or Fact ?
    You tell me :

    When we get older, radio's seem more complicated and the frequency readout shrinks in size ??

    Adrian, that is not a myth. But they are extremely rare and, for the most part, against the rules.

    [​IMG] The test for a real ham is how he or she conducts themselves while on the air, either CW, phone or whatever mode.

    Myth: "Path Loss" is the reason that a line-of-sight 432 MHz signal is 9db weaker than a line-of-sight 144 MHz signal on quarter wave vertical antennas.

    I say it's because of the size difference of the antennas.


    And just for the off-topic crowd:

    Myth: Technicians will never upgrade.

    Busted: Did it in 1975.

    Don't do that, Howard. Then I'll never get my "whiskey every morning". :eek:)

    And your comment about Americans objecting to others posting here is a myth... only a few disturbed ones do.....
