[TenTec] In praise of older technology

When I became active again, in the mid-1980s, I picked up an analog 
Century 21 at a hamfest (I thought it was "modern," and compared to my 
DX-20 and NC-303 it was) and used it in the NTS traffic nets. One night 
the NCS had me laughing out loud, alone in my shack. He'd sent me "up 9" 
but suddenly changed his mind and said "No no, up 8"! As if I had any 
prayer of telling the difference!
