I will be on a business trip in the LA area (Simi Valley) next week
(10/7-10/96).  Are there any ham or contest club meetings that I might
attend, in case I have some spare time in the evenings?

You're outta line here! You've defamed his product, his objectives, and now, 
with the 
callsign spelling (KD6DUH), you've attacked his intelligence. If you haven't 
done so, you ought to be man enough to confront him head on, not hiding behind 
keyboard! Talk to him! Tell us exactly what he says! Do you really think the 
majority of 
us are laughing with you? Even if Kenwood is pursuing the marketing strategy 
we've seen 
suggested on these reflectors, the situation isn't likely to be improved by the 
kind of 
derision you've subjected us all to. These guys are pro's; they're also human, 
and make 
mistakes, and some are even willing to admit it! Give him a chance. Ya never 
know; he 
may thank you for pointing out the error of his ways ;)...my point is: I'd like 
to hear 
what he has to say to you. Or would you rather see him respond to you in front 
of all of 
us so we can laugh at you with his clever spelling of your call? What goes 
around comes

I've just acquired my first amp in 40 years of contesting, an SB-220.  It
shows excellent power out on 80-15 meters -- ca. 1200 W -- but only about
700 on 10.  Is this to be expected?  I remember reading somewhere that the
Measures parasitic suppressors with the nichrome wire could have this effect
on 10.  Possible?
