Boy, are these people STUBBORN!  How unsightly is attic antenna anyway?

Just wait until the League realizes that some control freaks want hams to 
petition them for prior permission to transmit AND to sign a contract promising 
to refrain from exercising the privileges of their Federal license to transmit 
lawfully, if some neighbors $20.00 baby monitor cannot reject the signal.

OK, competitors, what should our new strategy be?  Operators are standing by...

Gotta go now, I have an irresistible urge join my buds at N6RO where we will 
transmit 1500W of sweet CW on all 6 bands from antennas at least 100' high 
surrounded only by vineyards for a half mile all around, repeating K3EST a few 
million times this weekend.  (You are cordially invited to answer us at least
