[Boatanchors] Mothball Fleet at Suisin Bay

As a preservationist, board member of a significant collectors association,
and one who mustered a team, launched a proposal and dotted "I"s and crossed
"T"s until the government folks that we were working with DONATED a 22 ton 1
megawatt Autotune transmitter to our group and a notable eastern museum, I
feel compelled to comment on this posting.

All government folks are NOT pinheads and posting such a comment on a public
reflector does little to foster the cause of preservation and certainly
lessens any chance there ever was of this equipment getting saved.

Why not take the opposite approach and find out who owns it and make some
constructive proposal that is crafted to be a win -win for both parties.
Then try some good old communication - trying to understand where they are
coming from,  and maybe save some of that gear.

I'm sure the usual Federal pinheads will doom these to the briny depths.

We need to get Dick Dillman and his posse to mount a night time raid, and
free these rigs from their government-mandated fate. Loose the Greenkeys
