One day last Spring I and KI4MLN were having a QSO. I was on my barefoot 
Heathkit DX-60 and KI4MLN was on his Icom IC-706 Mark2G Barefooted when 
a couple of the 3.785 hams called us "Hillbillies" and started QRMing 
us. Then they were talking about having a Non-Working HAY BAILER in the 
Front Yard! Who is the "Hillbilly"?

And I can Justify using my "SBE" with so much Incidental FM, it can be 
heard as well in the FM mode as AM on your Receiver.

There is no limitation to the fidelity of AM radio. From a mathematical standpoint, AM does better in frequency response than FM. - Leonard Kahn
