    Do you think people in countries whose language is written right to left are predominantly left-handed?

    Chinese is often written top to bottom - does that mean they have the upper hand? ;)

    I had to learn to read things upside down and backwards. Makes things easier when you lean over that radio looking for where something plugs in. That's one'a them technical abilities they don't tell you about...

    STARBOARD and PORT!!
    I even labeled my antenna selector on the Superflex motorized antenna controller that way.
    Now as I remember (I am not a SAILOR),
    Starboard is the Passenger side, Port is the Drivers side (unless you have one of those funny European cars, then it is the reverse)

    You obviously made a wrong ASSumption. WHY would you connect an antenna without KNOWING how the radio is designed, or which connector to use? I see no fault on Kenwood's part.

    my wife (the Nun) writes notes to herself in Chinese all the time.
    She grabs a Parakeet, dips its feet in an Inkwell and then lets the bird scratch on the paper

    Being able to read upside down is a very handy thing when you are sitting across the desk from someone who uses notes, formal papers, etc., when dealing with you.

    A ambulance puts the lettering on the front of it, So it looks correct when you look in your mirror.

    Some people are still to stupid to pull over.
