Folks ...

        I believe that we all know that the cost factor was the driving reason
behind the installation of RCA jacks on amateur equipment, but were we
really short changed by the installations of these connectors ?? That is
the real question.

        I believe we all have equipment approaching 40 years of age with RCA
connectors on them that have been doing their job, with no problems, all
this time. I have Drake, Collins and Heath and most of these connectors are
still going strong. In a use where there is not a lot of
plugging/unplugging they work fine !!

        With this information at hand, I believe that, generally, we can see that
the RCA connectors worked out OK and no one was hurt by their installation.
