Not really Ben!!  I'm fortunate to have enough equipment to pick an 
choose, and have been doing it on the satellites for 28 years...

The money that "went down the tubes" to build and launch an FM only 
voice bird is my gripe...And a lot of people do agree with me, but 
with the "powers that were" at the time we objectors had no 
voice...And I was told so at several conventions pre-launch...

Looks like things are really changing for the better, and it is about time...

Any other questions!!
