As a Old schooler, I'm quite the opposite! I was extremely happy when I
saw the 10 meter use. I was on every mode "A" bird, LOVED those birds,
and even the Russian mode "K" I think it was? 10/15 meters.
NO-84 is a bird that almost 90% of hams have capability of. No special
high priced all mode VHF/UHF rigs.
A cheap 100 buck like radio shack 10 meter rig and a scanner and youre
on this bird. it's awesome. And unlike the single channel FM CB birds,
you don't have the CB channel effect. Instead of one conversation at a
time there can be dozens!
