something ham realy need to read or rereaed
[A marriage not made in heaven]
In the beginning Adam had the run of the place - he could go anywhere he wanted and never had a cross thought or moment. THEN, one day, while Adam was strolling about the Ionosphere, GOD came down quickly and removed a rib from Adam.

Adam fell to the ground in pain and cried out "God...this really hurts". Looking down to see which rib was ripped from his body the pain became more severe and this time he cried out in pain: "WTF?? You pulled out my 11 meter rib!!!!!"

And so it came to pass that Adam lost his 11 meter rib, never to gain it back again. Throughout the years he preached to his family and friends about this terrible ordeal, and yes, even today, his relatives are still pissed at the loss of 11 meters.....

congrats to a madman

Hal tuner

I am only mildly surprised I honestly expected a token conviction on some lessor charge but maybe they was nothing to lessor included for the jury
Hal remarks were unwise in this climate but it seems that the sole price has paid for them is about 120 day in jail trying to raise bail

amazing the varriation in snowfalls

report from the mining gazette

yea was in Houghton Hancock today with dad( regular check up for dad) was not pretty there but out by me we have a bout 1 foot or less and milder winter no actual snow falling when we got home

a wet tale of water pipes

in the place here we have the old trailer and the new cabin where my wife an live . gives me, my wife some privacy from my dad who lives in the old trailer

problem: the old trailer is OLD and I had to bypass/replace most of the plumbing in it. one of my early pieces of that work (done in 2003 BTW as some of my very first plumbing work) developed a fault sometime before 1 ish when I went to find it leaking all over the place. the original was not my best work although it was as I said some of the very first work I ever in plumbing and man was it a pain to fix/replace got it done with a very high NSVI (Needed Satisfying Vulgarity Index)

but it is done and the new stuff should be easier to work with than what I had put all those years ago

a wothy petion

although it may not go far enough

an obit sorta to atraitor

Maj Haasan the recent terrorist at Ft hood well in word he is a despicable but another word that we need to avoid leaving out is TRAITOR . I do hope is so charged personally Id not mind a spot on his firing squad but i expect we could pay for health care over haul by raffling off the sport on that team.

I can understand that He did not want to go overseas , indeed I don't want to return to active duty for such a purpose myself, but honestly if he was just so adverse to going over seas to help americans in those areas then why not just desert and gpo to Canada or somewhere to avoid this unpleasant duty, and at least put that expensive education we the armerican taxpayers gave him to some use. No he decided to KILL his fellows violating not only his oath to the USA but the Hippocrates one as well, to have taken the money and run would be despicable but at least it is not the only crime defined in the Constitution of the USA.

Not only had Hassan forsworn himself twice as I have described above, but he archived little if any real damage to the USA but has done great damage to Islam and it image here in the USA. he has placed the target of suspicion on EVERY loyal serving Muslim and every Muslim civilian he did not even accomplish the disruption of our unit deployment

while we must remember that "the road from legitimate suspicion to rampant paranoia is very shorter than we would like to think"(ST:TNG Drumhead) but also the joke told to explain why no muslims apear in Startrek "they did not make it"

Thursday, November 5, 2009

OMG re ft hood

I am shocked to hear about this here is some part of Hassan's record how coudl he do this to the army or to his fellow muslims as well

my blogging a retrospective

back in 2006 I started this blog my first back on old blogger. I did after seeing various people blogging with other peoples callsigns with materail defaming the owners of thoose call signs very as the and atack the owners of thier callsigns amog the first content I posted was a peice of documenting the evidence of various extorion schems being directed again me somethign entitled "in the unlikely event of my death" i never realy expected the bpog to be well read but judged from the I get from google adsense i must be getting a fair amount of traffic .

after awhile I added more topic related blogs such as eme and vhf stuff then hf stuff and tehcinal stuff part of this was to keep stuff more readable part was bacause it meant more o my stuff shows up on google therefore less of the harrassment shows up as prominately

then a few yaers this boog was hijacked by the admited hacker calling himself dloyd lavies a friece foe of lloyd Davies so I created these blogs the war blog and coments about that blog here till I finaly humialted him into returning control to me

along the way I manged to pick various tosed and delted attack blog to keep them from being used as attack platforms again me after being introduced to VE7KFM himself thanks to efforts of dloyd/delorean to induce a direct state of cyber war between us by means of forged email to each of us as if written by the other. Instaed of biting I wrote a very stargely wored and heged email to him derect and we concluded that each was the victum of yet another set of force and fraud, we began claborateing based on the ancient "enemy of my enemy" theory, as had become clear to me that our foes over lapped in large degree, event seemed to porve that after the fall of Robeson k4yz mostly due his addmitting he was taking his vacation time in order to harrass me online, the late w4nti was mY lead foe while his k3vr was KFM's (these matters were proven to my satifaction when w4nti become a SK or corpse in non ham parlance
) with him I comlaberated and producing a seris of counterpunching blogs that targeted k3vr kz8o, n1fm and w4nti

I run a some fun blogs about my dog my horses and my chickens

it has been quite a run over the last few years and who knows what the next few years will bring

on my Health

for those follow the saga of my current bout with PTSD and thyroid related dysfunction, after my doc has seen me this past week he got on the phone and admit to Copper Country Mental Health to confess he was in area out of his expertise and that was uncomfortable trying to prescribe for me I will now in addition to a MSW Therapist be seeing and MD in the pych filed (not sure the exact credential) with experience in treating thyroid related depression, which is what I have been suffering from of late . this was not seen until we tried Thyroid meds during the last stay in MQT General I am feeling very much better indeed much than I felt in many long years at least I have to wait for an appointment with new doc late in Nov (no i am not going to tell you guys the date. also we need to keep track and deal with the fact my body may finally be showing the result of the salt level I have consumed and the other effects on my metabolism, but as I told my doc "you can have this SynThroid when you pray it out of my cold dead hands"

I don't mean to sound the geriatrics nets we sometimes hear on 75M but this my blog and if you don't like reading this stuff you can try another url

Friday, October 16, 2009

well new on health front

now this is not the latest on obamacare, to hell or google for that but the latest on my health First they said no simple single would make me wake up on and not be depressed.......


big time

one little pill taken every morning look containing 50 micro gram yes micro not milli seems likely to do the trick. What is the drug ? thyroid hormone basically yes it is now a settled issued I am HYPOthyroid that is my body does not make enough of that hormone. the result is not only am I cold often a bit shubby and tired much of the time but that I can get deressed ....nobody ecver told me about that last till last week. the tests on thyroid function in my case are borderline, so the mental ward tried decided totry it and see what worked . the first day I kinda stoped feelign so cold the net2 days more and I am feeling good I was late this morning because I got out of the ward last last night and did not get to walmart in time to get the drug last night fet a bit run down till 30 minutes or so after i told it and wow they can have that along with my minpress and amaryl when they pry the bottles out of my cold dead fingers

BTW MY meds are simple minipress nrmaly for high blood pressure but it has been found to help with nighmares as well (3 milligrams at night normal BP related uses 5 twice a day)
amaryl 2 mg diatets and now synthrpoid currently 50 mcg and may avcray before we settle on a dose

new about the non tidal wave of panic

I just hope this does not mean folks will fail to head future warnings

hmm almost a tale from the mental ward (but in fact is tale from the lab)

who knew that being hypothyroid could result in depression?

not me that is for sure but i have always been at least borderline hypothyroid all my life now I am told it may have something to do with my recent trip to the mental ward the matter might go away with some tests and a simple 4 dollars walmart script for a thyroid med so the doc has ordered an battery of blood tests to see exactly where my thyroid is what it is putting out and what could be done about it

tales fromt he mental ward

tale from the mental I hope

I must still be in the ward having some kind of med induced delusion. the president of the USA is not realy trying to pay off old political debts by bring the Olympics to Chicago the home of that product of daily machine. of course it would be racist to suggest that Obama were doing something for Chicago because he owes the polictians

recieved in my email from some where but enjoy

George Bush dies & gets to heaven & is told at the gates he can meet anyone from history.

He says i want to meet Moses.

The angel tells Moses this & he refuses.

The angel goes back to G.B. & tells him to choose someonelse, which he refuses to do.

Again the angel askes Moses who again refuses.

G.B. says that if Moses can give a very reason for not meeting him he will choose someone else.

Moses tells the angel

"The last time i spoke to a bush I spent 40 years in the desert & I not bloody going through that again

a sad duty

the sister of my Father in law just passed away

accordingly I hope the readers of my blog will now join me sort in reading the traditional hebrew prayer of Kaddish render here in english

with her long standing health issues this amount to almost a blessing but here we go

Magnified and sanctified be God’s great Name
in the world created according to Divine Will. Amen

And may the Holy One rule the kingdom in your lifetime and in your days and in the lifetime of the entire house of Israel, speedily and in the near future, and let us say: Amen

May God’s great Name be blessed forever and for all eternity. Blessed and praised and glorified and exalted and uplifted and honored and elevated and extolled be the Name of the Holy One, blessed be. Above all the blessings, hymns, praises and consolations which we utter in the world, and let us say: Amen

May ther be abundant peace from heaven and life for us and all Israel, and let us say: Amen

May the One who makes peace in the heavens make peace for all of us and for all of Israel and for the whole world, and let us say: Amen

or happy new year esp to all that are jewish

last night (erev Rosh Hashanah) we decided that since we were way too tired to make the trip down to Wasau where we have been attending services after the fiasco a few years ago of the local temple having someone trample all over my wife and I with remarks you un warrented there was no ways we were siting through services we left and realy have not been since well to get back on track last night being tired we went back after all we were too tired tired to go elsewhere and the worst that could realy happen is that we would decided to walk back out again

so we arrived with low expectations and thankfully things exceeded expectations . Yea that realy was not very hard, but things went well the party that offended us so mightl;y before apologized a pleasent surprise and many sought us out to say s heloo and make various small talk. Th etemple has had the same visting rabbi here for nuber of years (he was there when we walked out that yom kippur about 3 or was it 4 years ago

The Rabbi spung some realy insightful sermon including an interesting midrash about the sacrfice of Issac (which for some reason totaly passing MY understanding is the Torah portion for Rosh Hashanah but I digress) from the POV of that ram that stepped up last mintue to pinch hit for Issac, at the cost of HIS life. We really must track down the Rabbi and find the source of that one.

all in all things went well and we may well attend other functions when a rabbi is present . I suppose with my "friends" at nimbusters I have just invited down another torrent of abuse down on poor susan the president of the temple but that is just not my problem

noise DROPPING somehere in pour spectrum

Got this from here an interesting treat stand tuned for further developments


A present to the United States VHF and UHF ham community. This from both the broadcasters and the FCC as many of the nations VHF television stations vacate many of the low VHF channels, go digital and lower the overall noise floor on 6 meters.

The big digital television change out began at 00:01 EST on Friday, June 12th. Stations across the nation chose their own time to turn off their analog transmitters and move their operations to their permanent digital channels. Many of the low-band stations opted to move to the UHF band. A lot of them operated on Channel 2 just above the 6 meter ham band. And when those analog channel 2 transmitters went QRT, the noise level on 6 meters dropped in many locations. Places like Chicago, where Keith Morehouse, W9RM, reported over the VHF Reflector that this is a big plus in Chicago where the long known Channel 2 audio spur is gone. That spur used to trash the WSJT meteor scatter calling frequency 50.260 MHz.

In Milwaukee Ray Greiner, K9KHW, reports on the analog shutdown on VHF channels 4, 6 and 12. He reports that he found most of the VHF and UHF ham bands so quiet that he actually checked and see if his antennas were connected. He says that on 6 meters where the normal noise level was S-3 to S-4, its now zero.

But 6 meters is not the only band seeing a noise floor improvement. Steve Rutledge, N4JQQ, is in Memphis Tennessee/ He says that when VHF channel 3 went to UHF and channels 5 and 13 went digital on their current assignments, that the noise he heard on the 222 MHz ham band when pointing his beam East is now completely gone. He says that in the past, that the noise level was so high that it wiped out any signal from the east, even with a bandpass filter before his tower mounted preamp.

Even some of those living North of the United States and Canadian border are happy about the change. Jordan Arndt, VE6ZT, in Calgary, Ontario says that he can hear the difference up in Grid Square DO-21. This is especially true when the band is open.

Its going tro take a few weeks to really assess the impact that the digital television conversion will have on most of the VHF and UHF ham bands, but so far the results seem very good indeed. (ARNewsline™, VHF Reflector)

somethoughts about blogging

one lots of folks blog. it is one place anyone can astory without being interuprted.

it can esaily make a pittqage for having fun

truly I owe something to Nimbusters the way they promote my blogsw to the world it is more effective than spaming and yet I don't control it and can't stop em sw all I have to sit back and watch the adsense stuff add , the silly the materail I write the more they promote it, well since it seems Imust have /deal with stalkers I might as well monetize them

it is an interting effort a KybiOshimaru senario but like Kirk I don't belive in a no win situation as with my web pages I realy don't care if anyone reads this stuff or not althoughI know thanks to adsense, according to adsense 15 bucks has already been crited to my accound to be paid in july and the month is young yet

all I truly care is that the pages impressions add up and the ads get cklicked now and then. No I am not asking you to do this but if an ads interts you please click and not aksing someone to sits and hit refresh over and over again to up the rate but if you do I don't mind

these blogs are my way of sharing with the world and I hope you enjoy them

afew minutes MY wive finsihed a blogpost

my wives blogpost

various persons such our friends at a site called a truly bizzaree site where some truly bizzro folks hang out and dream odd schemes of revegnge for alleged slights, will it diagrres with accounts of myown in several ways I'll not list them for the guys make em work for the spam they will spew on that subject

there are 2 reason for that given the refusal of LE in the person of the cops in Illiiopolis I had to try and detect and build a case so I put out a bit of misinfo and conceal some facts so I can tell who is conected tot he real preps and who is not.

second of course my wife and I always had slightly different points of view WRT to these maters as do all humans observing the same event

my wife looking at the photo in this post or now hers

Do bear in mind I am not under oath on blogger. I do and will use disinfo to potect myself and my family my nation my beliefs

sharing with you all an amusing peice of spam

bear in mind we sold what was left of the home in illiopois in what 2004 or 2005 Id have to look that up

second how do you do a loan mod on a property that never had a loan in the first place

Dear William r Morgan:

If you are one of the households in Illiopolis who suffered from
irresponsible lending or need new loan terms to suit your home's current
value and today's economy, a loan modification can help you. (A loan
modification will recalculate your mortgage based on the current value
of the home, allowing you to receive a new low payment you can now afford.)

William r Morgan Loan Mod Account Page

We have a loan modification proposal for the home on Pob 221 that
would significantly reduce your payment using a fixed rate loan (no
payment increases!). If you'd like to look over the details, follow this

checking the date is it 1984?

The President and/or the AG might support pursuing the lawyers for writing thier opinions as a criminal matter if the AG after them thinks they were wrong?

good greif I can't even think of a case where the 3rd Reich pursued as a criminal matter lawyer that had opined something not supported by the Party later when it cam to power.

Maybe I am still asleep or something

maybe it is trail balloon that has not been thought out
if my phone was working Id be on the phone to someone.

One can disagree as to wether "toture" is legal but suely venturing one opinion MUST be legal or the rule of law is thertened

perhaps this will turn out like the 90 tax on AIG bonus to be quietly lost in translation

phone was up then down again

OTOH we know the main problem, sliding snow and smashed the att net work interface box. As I use is sat based it is not affected but we can't call anyone and no one can call us.

Monday, April 20, 2009

have you ever tried reporting a phone problem via the net....

but indeed this we are doing today

ah well.........

we had manged to get through the entire winter season to date without a power failure caused by the weather but today we lost power for 3 hours today oh well such is spring in the CC

well the world has been saved from WMD's

Yes I have heard the Messah speaking at the CIA and lerned the thrrat once posed by Weapons of Mass Destruction is banished from the world.........

.......Now we face the new threat Catostopphic weapons.....

get real man changing all the names is not promoting the security of the nation

shades of 1984 it is looking like Orwell just got the date wrong, or did he is revision to the calendernextso that 9/11 never happened and 9/11 can never happen since it wll be remove3d from the calender too

WHO knows

late spring strom they are calling it

when what Thursday and Friday I was wondering if I should be busted my rump to drag out and reinstall the ac unit we get the whip tail of that storm that buries Colorado last night and today going to be weird and wet withe forecast not calling for any ground temp below freezing the whole time and warm weather that may indeed have wanting those AC units within a few days

tea party report from houghton MI

here is one photo from the event I thought perhaps the best single image other are at here

I esitimate that about 150 to 200 people were there the mining gazzete says maybe 250 people

was a suprising crowd to me anyway was quiet and reserved the speakers well received till Mike Lahti (I think that is in fact the write spelling guys) the state rep showed he was not expected. I respected the fact he had the guts to show and say he had voted to raise my taxes, with terms limits he and the current crop of bozos had what was left for them by a budget defined by the boom days of the auto industry. The crowd got a bit ugly in tone but I don't think anything happened at that point. we left being a bit tired

well it beats loins and tigers and bears, but the weather is rotten right now been raining on the remaining snow all day on this the second full day of alleged spring

this sort of day is the sort to lmost convince a yooper of gobal warming after the nor easter from wind and mosture last around this produced 4 foot snow ddrifts iside the screen prochs conceting coridors I have built to conect one section of the house with the others

well at least my 20-15-10 metter beam is free of the snow (the director got hun up in the snow piled on the roof the soluation is obvious but hard to implement with the snow in place

winter l;last hurray part 2

sitting here safe at home after the show yesterday the temps and the plows opened the road the only worry was literaly being blown away on the road or even just walking between sections of the house the temp are fairly warm protected at 33 but real temp here in the sun is 42. sales at the show would be considered disappointing isf we were not already expecting very very little out of them . the maijor sales delivery was acchieved a other sales were slow, very slow, even the very newst stuff which should be avalible in a matter of days at nice eggshaped lace peices did poorly amusingly yet again the stuff my wife did not want to bring sold the best, the pouchs fromlast summer renfiare sold best

ps at least we were able to test with sucess the ability to accept tough the website/paypal the ability to accept credit cards in the filed with wifi access

bandit, ham radio and the thrusday night net

as promised in apost here and a post on the other main blog here the story of one of my cats that get on the air on her own at first

some eyars I picked a mic that would interface with my 2 fmm unit and give it VOX well the first enity to use that mic wasot in fact myself oreven alicense ham operator. It was Bandit, the previous Calico cat (we have had a calico cat in my home for morethan 25 year Kali Mal is the current one) I had set the radio on the repeaterpair for the the thruday night it was thankgiving and I was espond to my friend the net control who was concerned that no one might make it that day since it was thanksgiving day and folksmight not make it.

Well Bandit knew the net control too, and when he called for checkins Bandit heard someone she knew and cried "meoooww"

to which Net Control not thinking of a cat replied "station calling I did not get your callsig please try again".

Bandit of course cried MEEEOOOW" back at him and I realized that it was Bandit have a q with mmy friend.

Net control respond "station not heard clearly"

I then picked up the mike and called this KB9RQZ iding formyself to check and for the .....thrid party traffic Bandit the cat at this station"

"Ah Bandit i shouldhave known...well I will assume that Bandit is in and out and has no traffic for the the net thank for the first check in tonight Bandit, and I have you down Mark KB9RQZ any other check ins at this time?"

The net proceeded from there thankfully form Bandit killing some time and myself as well some other folks did turn in the net that and my station hadit first VOX transmissions and the first 3rd party traffic as well

some truly kosher spam

I got this spam in my inbox tonight (13th march) thought I would share it with you all on the yardsiet that aplies which this year works out to st patty's day on the common calender

I don't know where the rabbi got my email don't know him or the rrabbis who site he is promoting I don't get any money for this

OTOH I do support the teaching of the old line Hasid and I onsider myself something of a modern Hassidic


In today's economy while most people wonder what tomorrow will
bring, A yid dignifies himself for wondering for a fellow Yid how to
help him as well.

I am personally involved in these worthy causes of poor fellow
Yiden, and I ask you to do me a Mitzvah and help spread the word of
this new site that will raise money for these families.

Since the launch of this site will take place on Tuesday (21 Adar)
the Yahrzeit of Rabbi Reb Elimelech of lizensk, and I will be in
Lizensk with no internet access unable to promote the site, I ask you
to help me by forwarding this link to 10 friends - just 10 friends,
not more.

And may the Zchus of this holy Tzadik Bring you lots of Parnasah and
Hatzlacha in all that you need.

Purrim and Ham radio and no the cat has not got a license

First Purrim the Jewish holiday is this wednesday (the day this post will be released to the web)

Second Purrim is the name of one of our cats (and he takes an interest in the radio that woorries me, one of the previous cats did have a thrid party QSO some years ago but that is another story)

The event that Purrim chronicles is the subject of the Ester ) a person a jew btw not a chenical compnd) in the story we we have Haman the PM of the Persian King, Isshasomething-or-the-other (he is dead as is his kingdom so who cares, Haman we remember but I am getting ahead of myself) weell back to our story Isshasomething had a queen named Vasti who ticked off her Isshasomething (read the book of Ester)so got replaced by Ester, Mordecai's cousin who refused to bow down to Haman. Haman was unable to move against him so he decided to target the Jews as whole. este learned if the plot (being in the palaceand sort fa cryptojew) Ester stopped the whole thing with Isshasomething. the upshot was that Haman was hanged high on the very gallows he had built to hang his foe Mordecai, hence the old phrase "hanging higher than Haman"

Then we have the current goings on in Ham Radop where we have a new queen it seems (guess who may be filling that role) Crow (along with his cohorts like mike kz8o and n1fm) seems typecast for the role having hailed the new queen and then turning on her when he is part of that awkard gruop that Crow is willing to attack to get at his target, the rest of Ham radio held hostage to their reign of terror. (Karol , and me and others, getting the role of Mordecai) after a long reign as of terror he is, it seems about to be brought down because he/they could notface that some people rightly or wrongly are beyond thier power (all power is limited) The FCC is cast as Isshasomething

Wether the story of Ester is truly history or like the book of Job a morality tale cobled together out various true story does not matter. the Same thing do happen again and again.

That is real purpose of Purrim is IMO to help our people (the Jews) remember what has happened and thus prepare us for what will happen again, wether anyone realy wants it or not that icludes "Ester" and "King Isshasomething"

Thus while Purrim is for Us Jews is a party time like April Fools day it hovers near on the Jewish calender

remember therfore these the lessons oif Haman, Ester, Mordecai, and King Isshasomthing

All power has serioius limits

Those that abuse there powers may fall by that abuse

The results of trying to use power can not always be predicted

I bid all of you that are reading Shalom (peace) but above that Binah(wisdom)

The Torah is a tree of life to those that cling to it, and all of it paths are peace

a hot accross the bow I truly hope it is real

Tuesday, March 3, 2009
Someone Posted this in a Comment section
This is the actually letter from my understanding, there is rumoured that I wrote the letter, the truth is I had been at work all day, and secondly If either side of this little war thinks that this is "fake" then continue what your doing and see what happens, me I could really careless about 14.275 MHz.



Normally I would not get involved in what on the surface appears to be a "he said/she said" type of dispute. I am not going to comment as to who was on air first on Sunday -- but both sides are advised that I have tapes of the entire afternoon -- and these tapes did not come from either side (at this point I wouldn't trust a single thing given to me by either side -- as both sides have proven to be so intent upon proving that they are "right" and the other side is "wrong" that they will do and say just about anything to further their cause -- however warped that cause may be). I do feel, however, that some guidance is necessary (that and the fact that I have just about reached the end of my rope with all the players in this little drama!).

Randy -- I don't particularly like what Karol says on the air -- but that does not mean that you (or anyone else) has the right to try to drive him off. I have spent hours listening to tapes (hours that I will never get back, mind you!) and to tell you the truth, even if I did have jurisdiction over Karol (which I DO NOT) nothing that I have heard thus far rises to the level of an actionable complaint. For future reference, in determining what is or is not legal over the air, it depends on what he is saying. The FCC regulates obscenity . . . but general cursing and references to body parts (while certainly obnoxious) does not necessarily rise to the level of obscene speech. Likewise, calling the President names and making general anti-American comments (including comments regarding wishing the terrorists would attack us again and the like), while a sure sign of a lack of sensitivity (not to mention maturity), does not rise to the level of obscene or hate speech either.

Indeed, were Karol an American, his speech would fall squarely under the 1st Amendment -- you know that thing many of our forefathers fought and died for (not to mention our troops overseas right now). When you call yourself patriotic, built within that statement is the acceptance of the Constitution and all it entails -- free speech is one of the cornerstones of that fine document. It doesn't mean only the speech YOU agree with; or only the speech that the majority of folks agree with; or even only speech that isn't offensive to most mature, rational adults. It means ALL speech -- the good, the bad, and yes, even the ugly (as Karol is quite often want to spout). (Ok, before you decide to shoot back at me -- yes, there are some types of speech that are restricted. No shouting fire in a crowded theatre or hate speech -- but those are clearly defined by the courts and nothing Karol has said thus far falls into those categories.)

I have requested that Karol tone down his "act" -- (and if you don't get that it is an "act" -- you missed the whole point of his exercise with you and your buddies at 14.275. He is TRYING to incite you -- and succeeding admirably as you all have fallen into the trap.) However, I can promise you that he will/has not responded favorably to my request. He is going to continue the "act" -- and you guys thus far have demonstrated that you are going to continue falling into his trap. What does that say about the cognitive abilities of the Americans as they are all being led around by a master manipulator.

I sure wish we could regulate stupidity -- but it just isn't within the current confines of the rules. If it were, every single one of the actors here would be slapped with a fine just for being stupid/gullible and wasting my time (not to mention the years that Riley wasted trying to bring you guys back in line). What is within the confines of the rules, however is that fact that I can (AND WILL) enforce the rules against any Americans who cause harmful interference to Karol (and any of the folks who elect to engage him in QSOs). Let me repeat that so everyone understands it -- RETALIATORY JAMMING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND IS IN VIOLATION OF THE RULES!

I hope you all got my message here -- I have just about had it with the juvenile antics on the part of the American licensees. By the way, playing bulletins and tapes of a deceased licensee repeatedly in an effort to tie up the frequency so that Karol (and others) cannot use it actually does rise to the level of malicious interference -- and is subject to a possible enforcement action. Likewise, I won't even go into the ridiculous sound effects, endless playing of music, and general pre-pubescent behavior that quite a number of folks engage in on a daily basis at 14.275 -- again, all in an attempt to prevent Karol from engaging in QSOs. It needs to stop and needs to stop right now!

Can you tell I'm pissed? If you haven't yet figured it out let me clue you in here -- this behavior either stops now or everyone involved will find themselves on the receiving end of enforcement letters. This is an absolute disgrace -- I know kindergartners that have shown a higher degree of maturity than the whole bunch of you!!

well I always wanted one so I got one well 2 rather

a domain name of my own. in fact I have 2 of them the other is this site I happened upon a google ad for the hosting company that was cheap enough to afford me this vanity.

i can remmber the days a single domain was something like a 100 bucks a year each name and then hosting cost still more

the support seem decent for these days was a little confused as I was ordering and I was moving in but they provide via a net chat app live support that resolved my issues very fast. I admit my issues were something the gals (the gave fem names as the responded to me) at sales and then at tech support had answered many times for people new to running domains, like myself I now no longer need to be concered that I will and that attacks me as Karol has to suffer with

amusing reading

I have been reading in various including my email all sorts of "threats" claiming I am baout to lose my ham license becuase their is a new enforcement officer

the reason allegely is that I am a cocksucker


the guys sure have OCD on the subject

well RH's long awaied replacemnet has been named

let us hope that she is (and got something right for a change) comes to the job with intent of doing the job not trying to please various factions within the ARS as it seemed her predicessor was doing I do hope she takes a dim view of prating callsigns on air and of the sending of fake SOS message which have forced our local cops to respond at some rosk to the life and safety of the police in these parts

good luck Laura Smith
