Spring must be just around the corner because the free March issue of WRO
is now posted to the web for your reading pleasure. All you have to do is
go to the CQ home page at . While you're
on the web page, check out the highlights of the CQ magazine and
bookstore. CQ is available on many newsstands or you may subscribe through
the website.

To find WRO, click on the WorldRadio Online box on the left side of the page.

That will take you to the WorldRadio Online welcome page, where you will
have several options for viewing/downloading the issue.

You can download the entire magazine by clicking on the photo of the

March Issue Highlights
If you have college-bound hams in your family, you will want to pay
special attention to the March WRO issue. It details the Foundation for
Amateur Radio (FAR) scholarships that are available for 2010. Some of the
scholarships have residency requirements or "course of study"
requirements, but most of them are very liberal. The scholarships can be
as high as $5,000, and I don't need to remind you how expensive it can be
to put kids through college. It doesn't cost anything to apply, so I
recommend giving it a shot. The application deadline is in March, so don't
put it off.

Of course, there are your regular favorites, including Aerials by Krusty
Ole Kurt, Rules and Regs, Trail-Friendly Radio, EmComm, Propagation, YLs
and more.

This is my last edition of WRO as editor. I enjoyed being a part of your
ham life, both as a columnist and an editor. We've become like a family
and I am going to miss that. I'll be at Hamvention ® in May, so stop by
the FISTS booth and say hello! My direct email is if you'd
like to drop me a note.

If you have comments about WRO, please don't hit the reply button for this
email. This is sent by an automated service and your email probably won't
be read. Send your comments to the new editor, Richard Fisher, KI6SN at

73 88 33,
Nancy WZ8C
Former WorldRadio Online Editor

P.S. For those who don't know - '33' is like '73', but only used between
women hams. Do a search on "33 Clara YLRL" and you'll find a poem
explaining it.

thanks I guess

my fan club page

it is nice to have it so public that am I being stalked and why

from the source this date
Formerly known as "Wabbit". Severely pwned by Mark Morgan, and by User:Pope_Snarky. Notorious froggers/forgers & sockpuppeteers; various fanbois claim not to be in any way organised, though some of them periodically contradict that by purporting to speak for all. Their numbers are alleged to include: Douglas W. Adair, Lloyd Davies, Steve "The Pedo" Holestain, Roger Wiseman (Ritchie Troy?), Stanley Lawson, Brian Crow, and Dan Jeswald. Note that most or all of these are allegedly no longer posting to usenet.

They occasionally show bits of individuality by putting a non-Morgan- & non-Snark-related nick on their forgeries/froggeries of Mark or Snarky's email/email munge, while at the same time doing the "spokesman" thing. Several of them are extremely bi-/homophobic, while their associates claim not to care; however, since there is reason to suspect the entire "club" is made up of two or three members, that attitude is suspect. They accuse Mark of being a convicted and registered sex offender, but have failed to provide an unbiased source of information. The reasonable assumption is that they are homophobic Morse code-freaks, who are outraged by the success of Mark's side in the "code/no-code" debate, which saw the relaxation of code requirements for ham radio operators. An adequate rebuttal of this latter assumption has been requested for the past two years, with none forthcoming. However, this site had not existed for most of that period, therefore the request is reiterated. They are welcome to join Kookpedia and make their rebuttal in discussion (q.v.).

The membership of this fan club is nigh-completely unconfirmed, but some names, such as Adair and Jeswald, are strongly suspected, and Wiseman's current legal status is up in the air -- he may or may not have been incarcerated for possession of pedophilia or for pederasty in 2000, but even if he was, he may well have been paroled years ago. Then again, that rumour from Dean Humphries might well have been made up out of whole cloth (but merely because Dean said it, that does not make it untrue (though Dean has zero credibility)). Hence, he may well have been one of Mark's fanbois all along, or for the past few years, or never. Some of the posts from the 'bois do fit his pattern, however, so it would be rash to rule him out entirely.

One fanboi, who sometimes uses the nym "Hoop Dee Doo" (with the email (nearly identical to Mark's , and definitely close enough for a dyslexic), is known to act as a "spokesman", and has claimed not to be homophobic, but his unwillingness to make a clear distinction between himself and the other 'bois belies that. As the major ISP's in the US dump usenet, more of the 'bois are being forced to turn to Google, which is sort of clarifying the issue of who's who, somewhat. Yahoo and Google accounts, however, are throwaways, perfect for froggery and forgery, so they're still hiding behind Mark and his wife. Some of them have adopted the nyms of User:Pope_Snarky, and become owned by yet another usenetter.
