I'm not one to intentionally stir up strife so I will only say that I 
have to go along with Jim on this issue.  I have been a broadcast 
engineer for twenty-some years with more AM experience than many of my 
broadcast peers.  I love radio.  That's why this is my hobby AND my 
vocation.  For some silly reason I feel that occasionally I have 
something to offer here.  Like Jim, I have posted viable comments and 
been belittled, ignored and once or twice thanked off-list.  When I saw 
Jim's suggestion about the other forum, I checked into it and signed up.

I have only recently picked up AM boat anchor gear which I am working on 
to get on the air.  I have had several exchanges with Jim which have 
been very helpful not to mention cordial.  My only regret is that I have 
a lot of "real" work going on right now and not as much time to play as 
I'd like.  I'm chomping at the bit to get on AM!  Some of this makes me 
wonder why.   I try never to be rude on the air; but, from this list I 
know who I'll more readily answer when I do get on.  Come on folks, 
let's all grow up.  Be gentlemen here and on the air.  Its never too 
late to do the right thing.
