Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would

page, please do.

My experience as a contractor for
the Fed has been pretty positive overall. The guys I've worked with
have been pretty sharp - Hams all of them. I guess it is highly dependent
on who you happen to interface with. I've heard horror stories, but
