I don't have a dog in this race, so I'm not that worked up about it. But,
someone alleged that they had heard recordings of DA0HQ reading from a list
of calls - essentially labeling the operation as a sham.
Rather than take one person's word for it, produce the recording and let the
community as a whole decide.
