    And let's not forget the TimTron euphemisms. ;)

    "Your Dee-Wun-Oh-Four Microphonium needs a higher resistance load.." comes to mind. :D

    It's ok when Tim does them, it's part of his unique persona, but it just doesn't sound well when others imitate him.

    Armature radio frequently appears in postings on the Ham Radio Discussions forum.
    Maybe they run their stations on a dynamotor power supply.

    Actually, these days on 11 meters it seems to only contain the last vestige and historical depository of the language previously known as "Jive". It pleases my heart to know we keep some dead languages alive.

    "Oh stewardess ... I speak Jive".

    "Chomp don wanna help, chomp don get no help"!


    The word that always gets me going is when somebody says "orientated". Ack! Granted, it's a real word, but it only became used commonly in the 80's and shunned for the most part in American English writing. It's used in the UK only a little bit more. I still prefer the more widely accepted "oriented".
