    The modulation needs more positive peaks.

    NO, you shouldn't have. Stayed a paper ham and QRT, that is. Where's the fun in that?

    You're doing good. And we've all had limitations at one time or another. Stay the course.

Now if you read over the thread about getting a Johnson Thunderbolt on the air you'll see how my constructive criticism of a few points were taken THE RIGHT WAY as intended. As a result the amp is purring right along and the owner is right pleased with it and pleased with ME, the only one who helped him.
    Your intentions may be noble. Your delivery, in this case at least, leaves a lot to be desired.

    I see where you're coming from, now for where I'M coming from. My physical problems, now with coughing up blood on top of them has me feeling like I'm being run over by a bus. Then on the other side of the coin is Sue, all I shall say so not to be offensive, I've known her for many years, long before either of us came here, so I know things about her both + and - that you'll never know. She hasn't read anything since the paper ham comment, nor has she answered my PM and likely hasn't been here to have read it. Make of this what you will, I'm in no mood for further discourse.

    I have seen every post but I just don't feel like responding to them. I'm a tired person from constant life drama and don't have the emotional strength anymore after all these years of trying to defend myself and explain myself to family, coworkers, bosses for every single single thing

    It's ok with me, you don't need to explain anything. You just do what you need to do for you and don't worry one bit about anyone else. Explain nothing. You earned it. It's just nice to have you back.
