    Question concerned type of spark gap in spark gap transmitter.
    "quenched" was flagged as "incorrect".
    If you're going to have quiz....

    I never set the gap on my spark plugs.

    "Spark transmitter" is the correct term.

    I gave up on the trivia quiz. Almost everyone has at least one (out of ten) questions with a wrong answer, no right answer, poorly worded or something wrong. One even had the answer in the question. This issue has been discussed in the past, but nothing done about it. Apparently the QRZ staff doesn't think it is worth any effort. After all, it is "trivia".

    The Wikipedia article on spark gap transmitters describes both "quenched" and "rotary" (the accepted answer) types.

    You guys know you can report the question, with comments, as a problem? I've done this to a few questions and the next time it pops up I find it was generally corrected.

    It's just a fun quiz, don't make too much of it.
