I should think that the petitioner, Mr. Kolarik, needs to find himself a hobby more to his liking. I would suggest gardening.

Home of GORT. A buddy of mine named the 813 rig GORT.
His fear was when I turned it on for the first time life on earth would come to a stand still.

As the announcer on the "Mail Barrel" program heard on the famous Radio Morania once said, "Suggest you take up stamp collecting."

The patents for those things will eventually run out. I wonder if some of the unhappiness about PACTOR III and IV is really only about the high price, even when other reasons are given.

Ham radio is something different to each person. Most articles about 'what it is' are biased by the author's own interests and are not objective information.
