That's a curious attitude.  Though everyone is entitled to an opinion, I can
assure others on the list that the above is not one that is shared by the
vast majority of Dxers and SWL enthusiasts in Australia.   Most thinking
people in this country value the contribution of our public sector national
and international broadcasting organisations.    The lack of press coverage
on the RA outage is typical of the (commercial) domestic media here, and I
don't know that enough Australian's actually know enough about RA's
activities for any significant number to have a negative perception.
