    OK, Tom, I'll bite, How many slide rules have you ever found at a yard sale ?

    And Joe, that picture may be true about most parts of life, but as for Electronic items in particular, shouldn't the labels be turned around ? ? ?

    As Tim the Toolman says, " MORE POWER  HO HO HO !  "

    Actually, I probably see about 5 slide rules in a season. Not a high percentage, and they don't seem to be a hot item. But the memories!! [​IMG]

    I've been called a Luddite at my local radio club in 9V, but it's probably faster to compose a text message using the Morse key than by the phone keypad. Each keypad has three possible characters and you must chose between them. I challenge any teenager to compose a 5-character per word ten-word message in less than a minute, whereas any decent CW op could do twice that. So much for modern communications.
