True!  But my only point is that to many, a UO-14 pileup is interesting!
A lot more intereting than tuning an analog passband for 10 minuets and
calling CQ and listening to noise..  Not very impressive to casual

Those that get turned off should simply go find something else they enjoy
but no need to bad mouth others or detract from their interest...
