Default Boycott ARRL/QST advertisers

The planned special event operation this weekend by the American Radio relay
League to celebrate the "end of Morse code" is insulting and indicates the
organization's desire to divide the amateur community. As such we are
calling for amateurs worldwide to boycott ALL PRODUCTS advertised in QST and
email the manufacturers that you are doing so and why you are doing so.

Excellent Idea, but how are these poor no-coders going to get on the air without
the Yaesu, Icom or Kenwood?

Oh for the old days of tubes, when these jerks would electrocute themselves and
thereby improve the gene pool.

That means boycotting pretty much everything of any value to amateurs,
doesn't it?

Good luck with that...

(For the record, I agree that eliminating the CW requirement was a HUGE
mistake on many levels that will come back to seriously bite us in the
ass, soon.)
