Quit engaging JX and he will go away. Just like SDX.
He will never be wrong even when the brakes finally fail. Grin Grin

I apologize to everyone.  If I had known what I was dealing with this thread would have only had two pages.  Instead because I thought I was arguing with a rational human being I kept on debating him.  

Once again I regret wasting people time on this.

don't apologize, i kept tuning back in hoping for more  Cheesy  

it's been entertaining; i've learned that videophiles like plasma and some non-videophiles take whatever the market decides as gospel.  you reluctantly kept it going only because you wanted to provide the plasma detractors with relevant info that could tune out their resistance should they decide to open their minds.  you sort of exemplified the way patient reasoning can sometimes be ineffective, but you also showed it works wonders for those with ears to hear.  73

Thanks  Smiley. It's good to know that all those hours where not wasted.
I really do appreciate your words and all the support I got from the open minded people.

....it's been entertaining; i've learned that....

Well I've learned that if the key contributors to this thread spent as much time and effort on the air as they did here, they'd have earned WAC, WAS, DXCC, WAZ, VUCC, LoTW Triple Play......  I missed some good ones just reading this.....

LOL, well you also learned that each ham does things differently.

It would be really boring if ham radio was like a model railroad and everyone just sat there and watched the little train go around in a circle all day. That is operating as well!

And only you control how much time you spend reading here.

No need for the apology.  Sometimes the only way to find these things out is to do as you've done--debate.  The only thing is that for some people here it isn't a debate, it's that they're position is gospel, no matter what the subject, they're never wrong.  It just so happens that the 'gentleman' you've been going back and forth with is one of those.  73!

Speaking of that gentleman, to the subject--who really cares about it, since it really doesn't apply--even remotely--to ham radio?   Grin

Oh but it does. Turn on your plasma TV; turn on your ham radio and listen to your plasma TV.

isn't it rather that the lack of proper RF shielding in the cheap plasma models crosses the boundary into our hobby's domain, but there was no need to throw out the baby with the bath water ... ?

If you want to look at it that way, every piece of electronic gear affects ham radio.  Kind of unrealistic.

Pretty realistic around here. The plasma TV monitor here is very noisy. No other electronic device in my house comes near. If there were a problem operating while the plasma monitor is on, I'd do some work to eliminate the problem. But there isn't.

If it was just that issue alone plasma would be fine.
The Problem is the future viability in a market where LED has control.

I suppose small screen & battery operation practicalities (tablets. smartphones, laptops) dictates quite a bit?
