Thanks for your response, and for the rationale as to why cell phone
users must pay for incoming calls.

Good Gawd! I had a ham license before WWII (W9ZUK), and I worked over
100 countries -- and I still have the QSL cards for verification. In
CW, I ran a pair of 809s, in push-pull, driven by 6L6s, into a primitive
directional antenna. Receiver? A Halliburton Sky Buddy!

Can you imagine how either Verizon, or the newly-minted AT&T, would act
if they were placed in charge of today's ham radio? I don't even want to
think about it.

not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
