Call me behind the times,

old fashioned, an anachronism, a square, an old fuddy-duddy - whatever you want, but this is just not for me. It's wonderful, I suppose - how far we've come since the Dark Ages, but this remote stuff is just not for me.

Different strokes for different folks, but I'll be a dial twiddler, sitting right next to the radio until they pull the radio and key from between my dead, cold fingers.


And I'm comfortable with that.

    Nice post, Larry, and I wholeheartedly agree. The remote stuff is fun and definitely fulfills the "advances the radio art" part of our mandate, but I can only see it deteriorating to superstations that lease tower/antenna time via the Internet to the highest bidder. 73 de Matt KC4YLV/0
