Pedro ON7WP i was not going to respond to the radio discussion here as i did own a 897 at one time and it performed flawlessly and sorry i did not keep it. But your remark about Americas military making a Mess out of Iraq and Afghanistan i took very personal. I have two sons who fought over their and one was wounded and the other a Special forces soldier served three tours over there. And what i want to say it is not our fighting men that caused this mess your accusing us of but our politicians listening to your various european countries whining and afraid to make the Muslims angry that caused this mess that actually they the Iraquis and people of Afghanistan brought on there selves. Trust me and pray you never have to see it but we could have in a matter of days physically eliminated both those countries and there people. So with that said and i have no doubts nor questions of your technical knowledge lets just keep it at that a tech discussion and i personally really do not find the smart alec comments funny posted by others here. I'm sure you all know what was meant by the term used time bomb.

I took it to mean the finals will "blow".

The supermarket checkout stands are filled with publications using sensational titles.
While in a ham forum I read the words in the context of ham radio, electronics, phycics, chemistry mechanics, weather, propagation and whatever other discipline is involved in getting signal out back and forth.

So if I read that someone got a "dirty radio" off of Ebay, I will think dust and crud before I panic that there was a plutonium rod in the radio.

I guess that would make it a radioactive transceiver!

Some people are just born to "bitch and complain".

It has nothing to do with "those Japanese engineers."

For all that matters they might even be American, Indian, who knows....In these times of globalisation the world is such a small place full of surprises.

It would be much nicer  to stop blaming "those"

You seem to be a specialist in blaming others and putting certain groups like Japanese and americans as people that do not know what they are doing.

This is a mistake. This is called ignorance.

>(Yes I am a big fan of Obama...)

Oh, you're pro-communism. That explains a lot about your attitude. Communists (liberal democrats) are quite prone to hurling profane insults toward anyone who doesn't agree with them. Never a rational disagreement, and very little in the way of an valid explanation. It's a bit like a BASIC endless loop program.

10 HEAR CONSERVATIVE OPEN MOUTH
20 HURL INSULT
30 IF SATISFIED WITH RESULT, GOTO 10
40 IF NOT SATISFIED WITH RESULT, GOTO 20

In other words, the insults never end, and democrats (a.k.a. communists) are never happy or satisfied. Even when they get the changes they want, they're still not happy. An inch is not enough. They absolutely MUST possess the entire yardstick, and even that's not enough!

FWIW, one survey on America's approval rating for Obama is down to around 9.8%. In other words, 90.2% think he's doing a bad job! SOURCE: http://www.civicscience.com

An author who studied the behavior of societies called Le Bon, wrote a book called "The crowd" (Free on Gutenberg). It describes how to control societies and one of its prime postulates is that a society decays and falls apart when its accumulated cultural history is destroyed. In other words, take away the peoples cultural identity, then they are without a rudder, and the society falls apart, and can be remade in another guise.
This covert process is certainly taking place and it may be "political" but it intimately affects each one of us.
Ham radio will be outlawed in the name of "National security" when the process is complete.
Totalitarian regimes, want to be the only religion, the only source of information, and control.
Remember taxation as we know it was only put in 100 years ago and in the name of "tax the rich", but it never stays that way.
As an aside, both Mussolini and Hitler read "The crowd" by Le Bon and used its ideas to control the population (big hypnotic marches etc).

On the Flowchart (LOL). But soooo true.

Tell that to ON7WP, the originator of the thread, who began hurling political insults early-on. -AJ4VM

After the problems I have had with my brand new VX-7R this week, I wonder if there is any merit to the OP's quality control complaints. If my warranty replacement has the same problems, Im going to dump it in Dayton this weekend, after I hammer on the Yaesu techs there about it...
