Sorry about the delay in replying Mal but I think some other
correspondents do get the point I was trying to make. That you obviously
don't perhaps defines my point. A recent survey reported in some very
reputable sources suggests that "those who try to keep up with the
Jones's" are among the unhappiest. I guess that probably also says
something about those who strive to establish their credentials as
"Jones's".
It's too easy to use sledgehammers to crack nuts. A problem is that the
little guys get buried in the shrapnel that results. I and many others
have more respect for the little guy who gets his signal heard with
minimum power and resources than the guy who just winds up the Watts and
kills the band until he gets what he wants. And before we get into
debates about receiver performance those same little guys often struggle
to afford great receivers too!

Your approach to the hobby may well be appropriate but after all it is
just a hobby, a pastime. It's just not an approach I'm in sympathy
with.
