    Horse apples. One is common speech not directed at anyone and the other things you cited are harmful and hurtful to specific individuals or groups of individuals. Reminds me of a bar I used to go to when I was young.

    The owner had an absolute fit if anyone dropped an f-bomb but laughed right along at jokes about blacks, Native Americans, LGBTQ individuals, and probably others. But his self righteous banning of the dreaded F-word undoubtedly made him feel morally superior.

    My wife dropped a rare F-bomb just this morning. (She wasn't mad at me....at somebody else LOL) so I guess this classy, professional lady is the scum of the earth according to some twisted version of morality. However she would never engage in racist or bigoted speech because she IS a classy person and has her moral priorities straight. People need to start condemning and calling out others who DO the truly obscene things like denigrate people of color, different sexual identities, ethnic groups and so on. If they did so, the world would be a better place.

    There is a BIG difference between an expletive and hate speech against other people. To say the two are equivalent shows utter disregard for the people who have suffered discrimination for so long. It's not the words -though they are hurtful indeed- it's what that speech represents.

    I think Fred has been mighty kind to even let his decision be dissected and I am not going to say anything more. 73!

    Yes, I realize who he is, should that make a difference? I call it "discussing", not "arguing".

    It's just semantics. The decision has been made

    Please no further comments regarding the language in the video.

    Poking around and found this rig will draw about 750 mA on standby receive. Wondering about battery life and what people are using? Checked KX2 and it draws 135 mA on standby receive and the IC-705 pulls 320 mA with a 12v supply.

    I'm using a Bioenno 12V 9ah LiFePO4 which I've never drained (haven't used it much yet) but have run for hours. With that battery hooked up to my 28W solar panel and charge controller I think I could run as long as I could want to on a sunny day or weekend.

    I ran that set-up for at least three hours yesterday at what I would guess is my typical duty cycle and with the 28W solar panel in full sun. The battery stayed fully charged.

    If only it had 6m.

    2m/440 would be nice but if it had six as well I'd buy one. As it is I'm kind of on the fence. I'm tempted to wait (and I suffer "paralysis by analysis" easily and "when in doubt, wait" is my default anyway) for the IC-705 albeit at over twice the cost and half the power. Still 10W is a useful boost over my 5W FT-817nd. The second jump to 20W comes at a bigger power drain, obviously.
