Sometimes that don't work, though. When stations 10kc and 500miles away
are interferring with my conversation and I say something about, I'm
told that my receiver is junk and that I need better equipment.
uh... yeah - ok. When the offending station is with the 3.5kc
selectivity of my receiver, from 10kc away, I somehow don't think it's
-my- equipment that needs to be looked at.
Speaking of which;
attn: Bob Peters/W1PE... you might tell Mason he was that broad this
morning. I'm sure it was just a function of of tooooooo much audio to
the negative, cutting off the carrier, and splattering up and down the band.
