    Ok, ok,...here might be the answer to the question of "to channelize, or not to channelize" that is the question. Radios can come with two available options for the purchasers upon initial setup. One, only indicates so called channels and does not show the actual frequency. The "EXTRA" version for the more technically advanced would be what we have now. That is show the actual frequency, not any channel indication. Only problem wuould be "let the qrm wars begin!

    Forget my idea.....no good.

    If you own an older rig, and want to talk on the newer 60 meter band, a mars mod is a must. I think thats why we have seen an explosion of mars mod radios hit the market.

    I would LIKE to agree with you, but that may be a bit TOO naive. At least SOME of the "MARS" requests come from individuals asking about VERY recently released amateur transceivers, which SHOULD be able to operate properly on 60 Meters, although it may take a modicum of mental effort. Then again, so would legal 60 Meter operation WITH a "MARS" mod.

    Hams by nature are tinkerers in the old vernacular or hackers in modern parlance. Some do it just because we can ;)

    I have "better" things with which to tinker, than a $800, $1900, or $10,000 transceiver. Particularly when there is no (legal) reason or need to do so in the first place.
