    Not often, but often enough, I detect a bias against those of us using older technology. We may be perceived as not able to grasp (or afford) the latest technology.
    1. I was told by a Flex owner that my 15 meter signal was 11 hertz off frequency. Help me out please. Does that mean his pan- adapted 1500 can measure 11 parts per 21 million?
    2. "Those Ten-Tec radios are used by hams, mostly down in the South, that don't understand new radios".

    Considering what that stuff fetches at auctions these days, and the fact that it is mostly unobtanium and I have a substantial collection, I'd say I got the last laugh.

    Don, I do believe you have the market cornered on "unobtanium".

    I like that Sue, "PRF." Maybe medical insurance companies have a rider for that?:D

    Besides, when you're a ham, you experiment with and improve boat anchors - that's what you do! :)

    A friend has her favorite term. GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).

    ... as in, "a confirmed equipment hoarder has a horrible case of GAS?"

    I know what you mean, Don. I get weird comments from folks when I load up on SP-600s, 200s and tubes at hamfests. Their loss, though... :)

    Those folks have never heard the dulcet tones of an R390 cranked wide open into a good speaker on AM.

    The new breed of Flex's sound outstanding on AM. I use the same audio chain for the old and the new. I use an isolated splitter from the audio rack.
