We should dump the digital stuff and rice boxes and go back to Real Ham
Radio. Many new licensees are glorified appliance operators and few know how
to put up an antenna, install a PL-259 or even solder. The term appliance
operator is too good to apply to some of them! They wouldn't even be licensed
if they had to learn code. What is this hobby coming to? Where is the OM
when we need him?

Bill Cross was Johnny Johnston's flunky during the AM power debacle. He
tried to play "good cop / bad cop" game, even going so far as to subscribe
to Electric Radio, but never veered very far from the official party line
even after his boss retired and he took over the position. But at least,
tenure after Johnston's retirement marked the end of the docket-a-month
and we haven't seen much in the way of anti-AM proposals from the FCC in a
long time. But God only knows what we will get as a replacement in charge
amateur radio rulemaking, especially considering all the DIGITAL hype we
are seeing these days.
