Amen Todd.  I'm an Advanced and I feel no less than any of the 5 wpm
Extras of today for damned sure.  Besides, I can't remember the last
time I even operated in the Advanced sub-band on any band or mode.
I'll probably upgrade one day, however my work is enough for me right

Hpe to see you on 75 soon Todd!
