Why so intolerant? The Decca experimentors are radio amateurs, taking
advantage of the unique availability of some ex-commercial equipment to push
further the boundaries in this area. Come on, there's room for all here?
Nobody says you have to join in if you don't want to.
If no radio amateur had ever used any ex-commercial equipment the hobby
would be somewhat poorer, I think.
How can anyone claim any
credit/achievement using a commercial antenna system and data systems
chip rate detectors controlled by computers
Personally I take my hat off to the skill and knowledge of the likes of
G4JNT - again, the envelope is being pushed in another fascinating
direction. And again, if *you* don't want to do it, be our guest and don't.
There's room for all.
