Yes, I knew all along that it was Danny S in those ads; when I saw the
ad with him leaning on the amp and chopming the cigar, that absolutely
made my day! I haven't gotten such a charge out of anything in years,
and I wrote to him to tell him so. Of course, knowing about him in the
other ads was crucial to enjoyment of the exquisite humor of the alpha
ads. Believe it or not, back in the bad old 100 watt days of the QRP
ARCI, members were required to sign a pledge that they would never run
more than the then-100 watt power limit of the club, although I think
exceptions were allowed for true emergencies. Shortly after the QRP
ARCI converted itself to a QRP club circa 1978, the power limit was
done away with. Members can (and do) run any power they want at any
time, although of course only claiming to be QRP if they are actually
running QRP. And Idon't think running more (or MUCH more) power in any
way reflects on whether a person is a real QRPer. There are times and
places for everything, QRO included. 73...
