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 kb9rqz.com 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.

Moshe Terkeltaub

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!!
