Some are convinced that "real ham radio" ended with Novice
Enhancement, or removal of code from the Technician license in '91 or
the withdrawal of Elements 1B and 1C in 2000 or ... or ... Whatever.

I know the test sessions I lead are busy as was the Tech/General class
our club ran this past spring and I also know that some of the newbies
aren't often heard On The Ultra Highs because they are too busy on HF
(listen for some of them on our local 10m net, Wednesdays at 2000 CT,
on 28445 kHz).

Getting above 1 GHz isn't easy.  Actually, 900 isn't that easy,
either.  In fact, I'm looking for a clean IC910H with the L-band
module so I can do just as you suggest.  :-)
