Douglas Bader RAF pilot was flying spitfires during the last war without
LEGS, also a wireless operator on a Lincoln bomber used his foot to send
morse, after his hands were injured with burning oil.

The argument was instigated by a G3 as well!!!A CW enthusiast no doubt,
and one of Mals "old school real amateurs"?.
Sorry Mal but digital modes are useful to those of us with impairments
that prevent us from having, obtaining or achieving a "CW fist.
So stop this "real radio amateur" and "CW only" crap and allow us to enjoy
the hobby in a way that we enjoy, to the best of our imperfect abilities.

Does it matter, what is wrong with Kilocycles, condensers, and the
traditional squiggle for a resistor. It seem some so called
designers/engineerts and others have nothing better to do than dream up
changes which are not necessary.
Also, how did we all manage in the heyday of HF radio with analogue
systems, not a DIGI in sight, the world still kept spinning.
How about some good RF enigneering and less DC building blocks.
It is more challenging to use an old basic rig, ie Collins, Drake etc and
enjoy natural communications methods like CW and VOICE (AM or SSB).
No complicated digital modes are necessary, just a steady sound CW fist,
good symetrical ears and for some elecution lessons !!
