From what others say here and what I know, the answer is that it depends on the type of antenna you're using (Reception).

For transmitting, I believe the tuner is critical.  And I believe that a good, manual tuner is far superior to most auto tuners in transceivers.

I run a multi-band vertical so the tuner is critical for me, regardless.

There's a good many knowledgeable people who post in these forums and it's much appreciated.  I personally hope for some great osmosis to occur.

ixnay on entioningmay the axestay.   :D

That's a bit of a tough one for me.  If it had been two hams then I'd offered a relay or at least given my call and let them respond/not respond.

If either of the stations had been calling SOS then I'd have given my call. 

But since these were not recognized ham call signs and there was no mention of emergency, I'd probably have sat back for a bit and then "spun the VFO".   ???
