Thanks for your comments regarding "all" hams. I didn't meant to get a small
fire going the other day when I made my comments regarding the "extra"
waiting at 7160 with nothing going on down there.
I've been on this list for some time, and with the recent changes in the
B'cast stations on 40 all you would see were comment about the "old a.m.
freq of 7160 and let's all hit it and get going with A.M. again.
Well looking at the March issue of QST page 59 shows that there are 207,000
general and advance licensees, and 115,500 Extra's. One would think that
we all would not want to leave out the 207,000 general/advances potential
a.m. op's in our conversation. I've made comments about this in the past and
received the comment about up grading.
Now I understand that in these "new day's" when it's NOT Fair to keep
someone from doing what they want and in time the FCC will issue tickets
like a fishing lic. It's still not there yet. I plan to up grade in time,
Sorry for my run on mouth here.
I'll be on 40 tonight running all the power I can ( 100-120watt a.m.)
calling c.q. 7190 to 7180. 7 p.m. est I'm in Jacksonville, Fl, but I do
throw a good signal up the east coast and out towards Alabama and

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
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.
