Sounds like a politican.

Not to sound like an "educated rectum", Frank, but certainly someone 
else WAS interested in the conversation, otherwise the discussion 
wouldn't have taken place in the first place (grin)

No, it's just this -one- guy who (from the only other radio exposure 
he's had) thinks he's the "Channel Master" of 3.922.

I've since found out that several others who -used- to frequent this 
particular SSB frequency have also vacated it in search for more 
"intelligent" conversation topics that are radio related (like building 
and testing equipment) and are happy with the fact that this person can 
only be found on 3.922.

This guy used to be out in the oil fields, Frank.
