Why don't we all pick a frequency on 40M and meet there?  I check up and
down 40M almost every night and hear nothing....

Gentlemen: As in every aspect of life we go as far as we can and as far as
our understanding will take us. I for one have fought higher math and
"Theroy" all my life and it does not click. So, I will be the best General
operator I can be. I can probably shot better than most and survive in a
hostile environment better than most but I cannot understand and fathom
theory. 

Yes I could memorize the test but, I still would not be any more qualified
than I am right now. We need to compromize and keep the hobby alive and work
"All" licensed hams.
