    While in Mexico, I didn't have to press 1 for Spanish.
    While in Iran, I didn't have to press 1 for Farsi, either.
    While in Florida, I had to press 2 for English.
    It just isn't fair.

    at least not for very long..... I saw Don Stoner actually demonstrate
    his "Famous Stoner Watts" onboard an Alaska State Ferry, years ago,
    while in the shipYard in Seattle. I was the TechRep, during the Annual
    SOLAS Inspection, and the FCC Inspector wanted a demostration of
    the PEP Power Output of the Main MF/HF Radio, which was a NEW SGC711.
    It was Rated for 100 Watts PEP but we could only get aboyut 35 Watts,
    on the Bird Wattmeter, using a single tone test. The FCC Inspector
    issued an Form 801 RedTag for NonCompliance with Title II Part II
    of the Communications Act of 1934, as Ammended, which tied up the vessel
    untill the Radio Passed the required Test. Don Stoner showed up the
    next morning with a really fancy 200Mhz Sampling OScope, and connected
    it across the DummyLoad. The procceeded to do the Singletone Power
    Test which still only showed 35 Watts on the Bird WattMeter, but he
    showed that there was a 100 Watt burst when the Transmitter was first
    keyed that did actually produce 105 Watts for about 50 milliseconds,
    before the Finals caved in. The FCC Inspector refused to accept that
    Test, but was overruled by Headquarters, two days later, after Don
    submitted the Poloroids of the Storage Scope Display, as evidence
    of Compliance. The SOLAS Certificate was issued, and the vessel
    sailed that way for a Year, and then the SGC Radios were removed,
    and Icom 701's installed in their place.

    BBruce in alaska just another Old Fart RadioMan....

    Very sad state of affairs where life is endangered by politics.

    Every ham I know, that's not trying to unload an SGC of course, knows SGC
    is crap. Americans just can't make a good transceiver the way the Japanese
    can for the money....another sad state of affairs.

    SEA's are very good Radios, and can compete with the Japaneese in any
    Marine Market.....
