No.....say it isn't so!  A League leader exaggerating, downplaying, or
otherwise twisting the facts to suit his needs? Can't be.  (o:

Precisely why so many objected to AM being given an 'exception' in
their previous attempt.

Yeah, 'mini' my.....footnote. If they get their way, they can
truthfully claim that they didn't move to shut down AM. Just stifled
it to a point that it's no longer enjoyable. With the expanded phone
band privileges (and less competition for more spectrum by fewer hams
as time goes on), the old 'inefficient/takes too much bandwidth'
argument holds a lot less water.

Was good to work you last weekend, Kent. Looking forward to more
excellent conditions ahead.
