My first mentor WB0SSB Larry told me to never insult another man's 
radio.  Even if it's junk by my view, and even if 99 out of 100 other 
hams would say it's junk.  The rule applies - don't talk smack about 
another man's radio.  That's what the fellow has - and he's likely happy 
with what he has.  It's been good advice but I'm not as old as some guys 
are so maybe I've just not got clued in on the right way to look at 
these things.

So if you really feel strongly about this, then feel free to start 
writing checks for new radios Jim.  I'm sure there are a lot of guys 
happy to take you up on it.
