Wayne also replied directly to me - which says a lot for Elecraft.

His suggestions were to use 500Hz and 200Hz for the SSB and CW fast rates.
Also to turn the knob with a finger on the rim; the viscosity should ease with a little use.

I will give the knob time to bed in, but suspect I will be heading for the lathe.

There are obviously more extra class licensees than 1X2 call signs available.

When a few are made available more than 100 applicants pounce and this is redundant and repeatedly occurring.

I noticed a pattern for the newly available call sign W5WE maybe a coincidence? Anyway a W5WCM applicant was awarded the new call sign W5WE. W5WCM, W5WSS If that is how the licensee is selected just speculating.

I am grateful for the Vanity option but it is like a raffle ticket in a basket full.

Some of us are hopeful that VE2 and VA2 will soon count for DXCC.

I think Parizeau put paid to that notion in October '95 mon 'oestie Grin. I was in a pub on Drummond St. (IIRC) that night and attended the subsequent riot when Non won. Fun times.

...Typical troll,...

Standing up for a company is covered under the freedom of speech...

 at least I base my arguments on facts...

Well, the actual fact is,.............. you don't know what the 1st amendment really covers.

Really? It even covers what you said here. If it didn't, someone would be knocking at your door. That's the beauty of it. It does not require a degree in constitutional law to understand it. Unless of course your trying to water down the simplistic meaning, or trying to do something that is covered by other laws... like yelling "fire" in a crowded theater.

So I ask again...Is it a crime to stand up for an American business trying to make a go of it? And how would that not be covered by the freedom of speech? If it is a crime, then you could no longer even mention what your favorite brand of anything is, right? You would be supporting that business, right?

It is simple. If you don't like what I write, you have the right to not read it as well. And there is no sin to put someone on ignore. That's what it is there for.

Nice try at clouding the issue. Too bad people have to do that.

All the public sector entities in the US totaled together are bigger than the private sector. The legal system is about little else but special privileges for those that fight for them or pay for them or apply pressure via petitions or protests or whatever. Hams should be going for all the special privileges we can garner. Personally I don't feel that antennas are beautiful, too many are horribly ugly and mess up the skyline of any neighborhood so I'm not for yagis everywhere but a tunable loop can get out fairly well and should be viewed as a reasonable accomodation vs aesthetic considerations. Same goes for nearly invisible wires, not an aesthetic problem == not a problem at all. I've known a few people that were paranoiac about rf and they are an intractable bunch for sure. They are capable of being anxious about things but incapable of understanding them typically. You will not get any compromise out of that bunch so don't bring them into the conversation if at all possible.

Will this legislation help apartment dwellers? It would be a lot of fun to put a solar powered remote rig on the roof here, wouldn't involve any cables, just an antenna.

The "put it up and try it" is the best advice you have been given so far.  Just be aware that you might have to do some adjusting to get the SWR down.

I've had good results making a J pole antenna out of twin lead and fed with RG 58 coax. Great for hanging from a tree limb while camping.

Several years ago QST published an article about a J-pole made with 300 ohm twinlead built inside a piece of schedule 40 PVC.  I built one......has a hook on the top end-cap and an SO-239 on the bottom end cap. 

The length of the twinlead had to be different from what the formula called for because of the PVC pipe but once finished, works fine.  I use it each summer while using the HT on the front porch.

I don't think you'd gain anything with the '718. It doesn't have a built in power supply, it's a 12 volt rig. The '857D is quite good with filters installed, I have one with the 500hz cw filter. If you get the optional MH-59 mic,you can enter frequencies directly, if that's what you were asking about.

Personally we only care about one issue and that's data spying.  All the other issues you mentioned are not from peoples imagination but are part of the EULA you signed into when you installed Win10.

You should worry about and read EULA for Facebook.. Oh that's right they do it without even asking or telling you about it.. And you are worried about Win 10 you are plain silly...

I don't use facebook! Only an idiot would go on the internet and talk about everything they do so the public can read about it.
Also facebook does not have access to the files on your computer.  Lastly Facebook is a web interface and the use of it is optional.
