You must not be an NRA member John , that is a similar arguement that they have
to put up with all the time, "don't blame the gun , blame the gun owner " they
say , so I must say don't blame the radio , blame the radio operator ....
Oh thats right , people aren't responsible for their own actions any more ...

I have had more troubles with uneducated packet/aprs operators trashing the 2
meter and 440 bands and throwing non-protected mobile radios on mountain tops
than most anything else , and funny , you don't see anyone wanting to make that

Please don't flame , I just don't agree with your logic  , I for one would wish
that something like sky command could be made "legal" , maybe if they had made
it output on 1.2GHz. , where no-one seems to operate anyway ( I am being
facitious ) .......

I go now and crawl back in my bunker ;^)
