When they give that much control over them to allow you to make them angry
it's signal that we are being heard and its an uncomfortable feeling.

I agree about the characterizations, as we have many AM operators out here
on the Left Coast" in every age group.

Subject: [AMRadio] AMers all "old-timers"?

An interesting arrival in my email today...  I received a message from an 
anonymous person in reply to a message I'd sent directly to several ARRL 
officials regarding the IARU bandplan.  Well, to be specific I should say it
the same subject line as a message I sent only to a group of ARRL officials'

addresses, with an "re:" added.   That same subject line was not used on any

of my mailing list or web-board postings.  Interesting... might have been
someone who'd been forwarded a copy of my message by one of those officials,

In any event, the message contained some poorly written name-calling and 
profanity, which I will mostly ignore, but the following line would be of
to everyone I think...

>...senile old AM jerks! You been pissing on 
>the league for too long.  you will all be dead in a couple 
>years, so what you care?  run
>AM all you want nobody cares"...

Nice.  In the message I sent under that subject line I didn't even mention 
AM.  I guess it is another reference to AMers only being oldtimers ready to
the bucket.  That's certainly not my experience talking to guys on the
 And I'm only middle-aged at 44 years old, and I personally know 6 guys in 
their 20s and 30s that run AM quite a bit.
