Apparently you missed my point completely:

I agree with that.

I don't have a problem with that.

As you say, that is the point of the reflector.

Is Tom saying that most hams are not capable of tuning an amplifier? I

I believe the above procedure to be incorrect. I see little to indicate

Are we referring to Allah here when "the designer" is mentioned? Does Allah

Who cares about Tom'sdesign priorities when designing something except Tom?
In this particular case, I don't. Must everyone on the list share Tom's

Will is the moderator of this list. It hasn't been more than a week that he
requested us to act in a civilized manner. Telling somene to get off the
list because your opinion is in disagreement with his appears to be exactly
what he was talking about.
