Ahhhh man I tell ya....I am not sure what Collins GD Twins look like...but I am familiar with some other Collins gear...in my younger days...there as an old crusty amateur radio operator that lived down below me...I complained about RFI from him and he came up and put in some chokes in our phone and cable lines...cleared it up....he then tried to recruit me. Of course I had other things to get done so I passed. But he had Collins and Drake stuff. Good ole American Electronics. I tried to buy older equipment, but the prices people want these days...I rather get a cheap new rig...and that's what I got. So you admit you got a big radio...hmmmmmmmm...... As for that snob remarking about wires and 100 watt not cutting it.........no need to comment on that line of crap eh? Let's remember...my comments were not so much about bitching about bungholes on the air......I was more voicing an opinion that lack of enforcement is the most detrimental factor amateur radio faces these days.
