A couple of comments and I'll cease and desist on this thread....
1) I post "credentials" so that others may see what my interests are...I've
run across professional and amateur astronomers, broadcast engineers and
others as the result of their signature content. It is a most useful concept.
2) If one is not interested in the other fellows rig, antenna and QTH, why
in God's nanme do you even call CQ?
(note...PC...no posted credentials)
