The FCC *mandates* we *know* that our TX output meets FCC
standards for spectral purity.

Amateur Radio is a self-policing hobby.

Guess what two minimal tools *every* Ham *should* own and
use regularly to meet FCC *mandates*?

A scope and a dummy load.

Guess how many own, let alone use them?

And we criticize CBers as scofflaws while we fuss that
the FCC no longer mandates CW?

"Render unto Caesar ..."

Isn't it funny how we selectively view things? I am not
pointing fingers, I make the same errors in my life.

I am not sure we are getting anywhere with this other
than aggravating list members - and confusing several
lists who are only getting half of the conversation
(I am not subscribed to several of the cc'd lists).
