Don,   where do you think I heard this term?   And where do you think 
those slopbucketeers got it? I'd be willing to venture that over 80%
of the jerks, lids, troublemakers and miscreants who give us  a hard 
time for running AM, are ex-CB'ers.  And as you well know, CB'ers, ex 
or other wise (freebanders in particular), disdain the use of AM as 
being unworthy of true radio operators.  Only kids, drive-time 
suburbanites and  losers use AM. Every "professional" radio operator 
knows that!

"Ghost-talking" eh?
Now that's the exact term I've heard slopbucketeers accuse me of, when I 
would be in an AM QSO that happened to fall near their dead-air frequency, 
and they could hear me but not the other station in my QSO.
