Jon, how long do expect to be able to use these old modes for?
We can't afford to be stagnant. That means at some stage, old
fashioned modes have to be retired. We're not ready to retire
them yet -- ground stations aren't ready. But that doesn't mean
we shouldn't desire to move forward and to actually do something
about it.

I don't see how forward thinking makes someone a technology bigot.
Amateur radio is supposed to be about experimentation, not just
ragchewing with your mates.
