After reading this thread, I have concluded that I will avoid any radio 
newer than an Omni VI (non plus) like the plague.  I started out in Ham 
Radio with a rockbound Knight T-60 transmitter and a Command Set 
receiver.  After that experience I have come to love the high 
performance and reliability of my older Ten Tec equipment and am 
supremely happy with the company's extensive support of it.  I still 
have my old Drake and Gonset equipment to use as a backup.

Great competitors seem to be able to win with less than optimal 
equipment.  G. David Tubb once won a national rifle match with a box 
stock Remington 700 rifle.  When someone asked the late Mike Hailwood 
how the latest Honda 6 cylinder racing motorcycle handled, he replied 
something to the effect of, "...like a bloody camel."  Honda about had a 
collective stroke from the negative publicity, but Hailwood continued to 
win races and championships on their machinery nonetheless.

Enough already.
