So long as you think 1890 is what's intended. We've technologically advanced a bit since then. Sure, you can PTT and voice or Morse code just as we did 100 years ago, or you can let go of your nostalgia and learn to evolve and adapt. But some prefer to fall behind and bitch about how the bands are dead (using your preferred mode). Go where the action is sir, or you'll be rather lonely in your angst.
