[CQ-Contest] SDR's have knobs too!

Software Defined Radios have knobs - and if you want, more than one!

So let¹s debunk this myth once and for all:

1. Software Defined Radios can and do have knobs
2. Don¹t let knob-itism get in the way of appreciating the better
   offered by software defined radios.

I respect folks who like their knob based radios - and indeed, I use knobs
with my SDR based station and wouldn¹t be without it.

But I would never go back to a non-SDR radio - the experience and the
advantages are simply too compelling.
