The majority of far east countries do not use the metric system, nor does
the middle east for weights and measures

EXcuse me-
The only country that doesn't oficially use the Metric system is the
USA, along with two tiny ones whose names don't come to mind.   And
look what not using it cost the Nasa space programme!

I like the term "badvertising" seen in this months mag.   Postings
like these come firmly into that category when seen by outsiders.

How about all the different weights and measures used throughout the world
plus the different currencies. The majority of countries do not use the
metric system, not even in some parts of EU.
If a radio amateur gets confused over resistors perhaps he is better suited
to the internet and a mobile phone.

Does it matter, what is wrong with Kilocycles, condensers, and the
traditional squiggle for a resistor.
Using different names, symbols or abbreviations can lead to confusion
thus errors.
