    Curious - what does this post have to do with anything being discussed or the thread topic?

    It makes no sense in any context I can see o_O

    I see the point Dave. When transceivers entered the computer category their obselesance was obligatory. No one wants an obsolete high technology. You can expect ham tranceivers to drop drastically in price but also have very short useful lives in the future. An example? HTs. Old HTs become junk. I don't think modern HF tranceivers will maintain a following like the Boat Anchors did.

    Superior by whose definition? Not true thinking individuals. Just the sheep trudging along to slaughter.

    Actually with Flex it is wait, wait, Buy wait some more, pay a deposit, try be a beta tester to work out the bugs, wait for bug corrections, deal with blue screens, and sell.

    The addition of lead did a lot to inhibit the growth of tin whiskers. Also reference dendrites under this topic. Another issue was the use of
    OA (organic acid) flux. OA flux which required specialized pcb cleaning equipment and caused post production growth of residue which caused
    in circuit issues.
