    If that's what you got from what I wrote, you should not be teaching, Burt.

    Can't even get the quote right.

    Got that HG-10 fixed yet?

    It was certainly a strategy used during that particular conflict. Note that two of the victor nations each had total losses that dwarfed those of any other participant.

    I got from what you wrote is best exemplified in message #78.
    I copied the quote from a link
    The HG-10 is awaiting its turn.
    I have a VF-1 that won't turn on what is wrong?

    Why don't you open it up, examine it, trace out the schematic and compare it to what the manual says it should be?

    What about 2 meter AM mode during WWII? All of Eisenhower's personnel ships carried this 2 meter AM radio Comm. No one could tune that high, so we spoke like CB'ers on that band, ship to aircraft. Actually we still use this band & AM mode today for the military. Take the Blue Angels for instance and try to find an AM receiver (besides SDR) for 135Mhz Hi.

    Currently, this rare E.H. Scott "RCK" 2m AM Receiver sits partially restored in the Indianapolis Memorial Radio Room, 100% accurate I might add. Drop on in when you're in that neck of the woods. link.....

    Holy smokes, from the time of the USS Indianapolis? Pretty famous ship, for several reasons. The atomic bomb for one. It was also the greatest loss of life from a single ship in U.S. Naval history, when it got torpedoed in 1945. God rest their souls.

    You have no idea how irritating that is.

    Burt's regurgitation is just something that he does. He doesn't even have to think.

    Quote the message #78. Don't make everybody search the thread then wonder why you referred to it in the first place.

    Churchill remained a member of Parliament until 1964. The British (I won't say we because I wasn't old enough to vote at the time!) voted in the Labour Party in a landslide victory based on their promises to set up a welfare state, and bring in many other reforms - plus people were heartily sick of the upper class old guard of incompetants! In effect Churchill was rewarded by continuing as an MP but his party was punished for its extremely reactionary tendencies.

    Oh, and no battle was lost by stopping for tea - don't confuse Asterix with history!:)
