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.
