If I ever got so Mad at my Boatanchors I wanted to Scrap 'em, I'd likely offer 'em up to someone who was willing to come pick 'em up, or at least pay for shipping. Which means I'd likely get to keep 'em at least another week, 'cause NOBODY has time to do anything like that now. But,, OTOH, you might even get a vehicle to carry the damthings home in-A 1973 Fleetwood Brougham Cataract w/35K actual. But YOU pay 4 the gas to get home in- It gets 6 MPG in town, & a ROARING 9 on the hiway...Needs to be painted, too.

I think Sandy needs it more than I do....Considering his don't have any coils.
I don't know if 15M ham is his thing, but it beats a set that can't tune anything/has a gaping coil receptacle in the front.

Part of me wants to go back to windows 7 (I still can if I want because of backup drive images).

Bottom line with computers if you can't work on them, find someone who can...Like tube TVs they can only go so long before something breaks.
