SSB ops clear down to 7000 kHz on 40m, Grrrr

two things working against your statement are:

1.  80 hz filter.  most old receivers drift just a little <chuckle>, and a
80 hz passband cw tone is here one second and gone the next.  how do you work
this out?  you don't except open up the passband and hear all the noise
and hope that the cw signal drift is stable enough to stay in the larger
passband. (did I hear you say "buy a NEW receiver"?  not an option for many
old timers.)

2.  to me you are saying " only us modern folks should have rights ", and
you old timers
that like tube junk that drifts should get real ( read spend money for
state of the art )
and get rid of your antiques.

That's what comes across to me from your statements.  I'm not sure that's
what you
meant to infer.
