[No, Myron disapproved of those who used the then-new Whiskey Alpha "space cadet" phonetics, rather than the older, WWII Willie Able phonetics.
thanks for clearing up W2OY's issue with phonetics. I was originally a WB -- in the recorded snippet he says "no Wet Bottoms" LOL
sounds like he was missing the glory days of radio and felt like the phone bands had been invaded by idiots who, in addition to being identified by their new school callsigns, also had new-school phonetics. He did make some interesting phonetics up of his own in protest. It does seem at least anecdotally that although he did things like call "CQ First Class operators" he was fairly civil to those who answered his CQ, even if they were K8's or kids
sounds like he was a good businessman and person too, according to the tribute...
