And let's not forget the "Doctor is In" column stating the dangers of
how one must never ever operate a transmitter with tube finals, nor
purchase vintage equipment. Beginning hams can't be expected to learn
how to dip the plate and bring up the load.
Sad. Really sad.
I enjoyed my Dayton visit immensely. I am an ARRL member, though I do
not give them my undivided support. I did not even step into the ARRL
realm at Hamvention, though I really did feel like getting my nerve
together and tell the good doctor what I though about his dissuading
newcomers from buying vintage equipment. Encouragement might take
away advertising dollars, after all.
