QRP SKEETER HUNT THIS SUNDAY!

Is there such a thing? Was there ever? You can still find some classical stations on the FM band, and here and there, a rare-as-rooster-knob's-teeth AMer spinning REALLY OLDIES, but how about the ham bands? Not talking ham DJs, no no, I mean courtly YLs & OMs conducting themselves with commensurate grace, skill, and Old World politesse.
By gee, I recall a gent whose name was Dean, one of the old Sunday noon 3900 crowd of my kid ham days. Funny thing, Dean was the Dean of our local scene, a softly-well-spoken retired doctor with a kind word for all, but all same no goody-goody, a ham of wit. So by classical amateur radio, do I mean just demeanor, or include a particular vintage of rig? Ya know, I dunno. I think there's a technical part, yet Dean was up date for the time, running a nice new NCX-3, both mobile and at home. So the definition needs work...and possibly a Pledge Week. Kidding!
Sure, this Classical Ham thing is a gas in progress. Just playing radio, my style. Think it over. We'll pick it up later.
