Jerry remarked:

"Because of transformer and bleeder resistor looses, efficiency while
receiving is even poorer, and with receive time much longer than
transmit, the overall energy consumption is still way more than it need

Jerry, I'm glad you evidently never sat down in the old days and
calculated the overall efficiency of say, a Viking I and 75A4 station
combo?! You'd have felt faint?       :-)
