Well said Geoff, and thanks. It's like I told some folks on AM the
other day who are not happy with any AM'er that ALSO operates other
modes; it's not the mode that makes the man, but the man himself that
makes him a man. True, there are a lot of sideband ops that have a
vitriol hatred for AM ops, but we all know it works the other way
around too. None of this helps a damned thing in the hope this war
will ever end.
