Thread OP

you need to know when to stop

after many radios and attempts to catch up, i have awaken to the fact that if you dont sit down and seriously consider what you want, is more likely that will stay on the roller coaster of the manufacturers/sellers of radios and electronics and keep buying their latest release-even if you dont need it (or cant use it!).
it has happened to me. i have so many radios that i will never use because i just wanted that new feature or promise that this new thing will solve my problem and at the end of the day, programming it was a headache and couldnt make it work. the 'experts' advice is useless because, or they really dont give a hut, dont give it, or is intended for some with a masters degree on radio electronics for wizzards on models-that i am not. and also that those 'experts' never get tired of talking me down as i were retarded. and manuals dont explain in detail all the steps to accomplish the goal. as exceptions, there are a few real experts that provide great help, but rarely all the details, and the multitude of devices that supposedly help to get something just make life even more complicated.
if you find yourself in this predicament, you understand my point of view. but if you are an expert in electronics, with many years of full training on all these issues, you will not. we are 2 completely different groups as far from each other as if we were from a far away galaxy. something like those from "3rd rock from the sun". if you have watched the show you will understand.
so here we are: keep buying any release, or stop buying that new gimmick that promises the solution to your situation and awake to the fact that you are hooked to the never ending craze of consumerism created by sellers. your choice.
besides...after all, i have everything i need for doing what i want!
