    I find that fascinating.  One of the reasons I bought my 6500 was after seeing SSDR demonstrated at Lebanon in 2013, I immediately recognized the implications of the technology for other uses. Long ago, in a galaxy far away, I was employed by one of the 3-letter agencies, and I know I'd have killed to have had then, the power I now have at my fingertips here in the shack.  The waves of nostalgia keep sweeping over me, and I wish I could be back in the game, if even for a day.

    Ha ha!  Many decades ago, I was a FREELANCE SCHOOLTEACHER in Vietnam.  I lived in a small mountain town in an area that the military considered "unsecured."  I was *NOT* working for "one of the 3-letter agencies, BUT many in the military were convinced that I was.  I did NOTHING to dispel that theory, and used it to my advantage to gain -er- "privileges" and "dispensations" that I was not eligible for.  It was a lot of fun, playing that game.  My life dramatically improved when I gained PX privs that I shouldn't have had.  :D
