Someone is either touchy about my mention of the ARRL, the FCC, or the new group of hams raised and still living in a mental state of "gimme and entitlements". Hence, they removed my post. That's OK...Those who read my post, and operated CB in the 60's and 70's know what the radio service was once like. And we're ALL aware of what it has become. The conversation started with regard to hams running illegal amounts of amplification. I merely stated where that mindset came from. And it's being perpetuated and expanded on by a handful who have no regard for rules and regs much less their fellow hams or the hobby itself . The hobby will suffer from this mindset as I stated in my censored post. I stand by what I say and what I know. Read this quickly as this will probably be deleted as well.
