Spark operators: "CW is the end of ham radio"
CW operators:  "AM is the end of ham radio"
AM operators:  "SSB is the end of ham radio"
SSB operators: "FM is the end of ham radio"
FM operators:  "D-Star is the end of ham radio"
RTTY operators:  "PSK31 is the end of ham radio"
PSK31 operators: "FT8 is the end of ham radio"
