Oh yes,
I particularly like the way their faces glaze over when I say, Yes, I am
looking for
filters for my 1000 watt transmitter! Their response is usually, we aren't
allowed to sell
transmitters here! Well Duhhhh! Another one is where do you keep something
like that?
I respond, why on my 1000 watt transmitter shelf!
