And it's about time that shit came to a screeching halt, IMHO - it's bad 
enough all the harrasment from the sideband-only clowns, but this pedantic 
formal, ritualized "modulation bigotry" is just making the SSBer's point 
for them. I think the answer is to be very polite, courteous, and 
respectful, and also to run about 530.25 RMS watts into the antennae with 
clean, spur-free compandored 100% modulation - adhering all the while to 
the Commission's Rules and to the Gentlemen's Agreement Bandplan(s).

   And let 'em rant and rave all they want. That's what my Valiant, amp, 
and R-390 will be doing, as soon as I get the HF loop working again -
