One man's "magic rig" is another man's dumpster destiny,
and another guy's dumpster-diving treasure!

Beauty is often in the eye of the beholder. Those who have 
never run a converted Johnson whiteface or chromefaced
rig on 10m AM will never know how much fun they are 

It is kind of like those who vehemently claim that 
"Ice cream is no good!" - while having never tasted 
any themselves - LOL!

So what if you can only use one at a time?  I don't think 
that has ANYTHING to do with preserving nice old 
transceivers like those!

"May all of your Johnsons be white-faced!"
