How about Old Tube Rigs,

After participating in Field Day this past weekend,  I dearly miss my 
old Drake TR-4.  No bells and whistles,  no special filters  etc.

But as an example, when I had it three stations could be on 40 at once 
and that old Drake would care less.

The 40 cw station and the "Novice"  (now GOTA)  as well as a 40 SSB 
station all could be on at once and never even know it.

This past weekend  every station I visited all suffered from front end 

the cw station could hear tyhe desencs from the ssb station on the same 
band,  and the ssb station sounded all the time like a backwards 2 
merter aurora qso was happening.

It was horrid and shameful that a  vintage 60's rig could out perform 
rigs that cost ten times as much that are modern,

Tis Sad,, truly sad
