Just an observation. I've seen rigs that have been used 'gently' and rigs that have been used hard. One friend of mine used his rigs hard--he was a member of the "AKR" club--and he was usually having to have his rigs repaired often.
The "AKR" club? That's the "All Knobs Right" club--whose members push their rigs as hard as they can!
I have never heard of the AKR club (as a formal organization) but in my time I could nominate a bunch of folks for membership. Usually they are also asking where the hidden service menus are so they can dial up the 100 watt PA to 125 watts for that extra 1/10th of an S-unit that makes all the difference in a contest <joke>.
It is amazing how many of these folks also have things that barely resemble antennas (coat hangars held together with acid core solder), no grounding, do not own an SWR meter and judge everything anecdotally or by reports on how good "they sound" on ESSB. Also they will run a full 100 watts to get onto the input of a local 2 meter repeater that is located 3 miles away and you can roast a steak on the heat sink of their favorite transmitter.
