Well said, John.

I'm not terribly active on AM, though I've enjoyed it several times on 10 
m. and I enjoy old equipment. I fired up my Dad's (W5JHJ) Globe Champ on 40 
m late one afternoon and he enjoyed seeing the old rig work its magic again.

As for 75 m: yep, it's a bad barrel. I find most of what I hear on the 
phone portion of the band shameful. That's why I usually work only CW. It's 
much harder for the misanthropes to be rude on CW (and the other digital 
modes).  One of the exceptions is AM: I'm impressed with what I hear there.
