Liberty Net: May 28, 2016

Liberty-Net---811A-tubesby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

MANY READERS wonder just what kind of equipment they should use to start out in amateur radio and to participate in the Liberty Net. There are many different answers to that question, from vintage gear to the latest that technology has to offer. My personal preference is now — after experiencing several of them — to go with a Software Defined Radio (SDR).

The razor-sharp and infinitely-variable filters, ruler-flat frequency response, and clear, low-distortion capabilities of SDRs make them a whole order of magnitude better than conventional transceivers, in my opinion.

There are two major manufacturers of SDRs: Flex Radio and Anan. There are also numerous new start-up companies entering the field, like Italy’s Elad, so development and competition are in full swing. There are models that you can buy new for under $1,000, such as the Anan 10E, and I have seen used Flex SDR-1000s (an older model which I use) for under half that.

In the left-hand column of this site is a feed from the Flex Radio community forum, and in the right-hand column is a feed from the Anan discussion group. Jump in and read — there’s a whole new world of amateur radio out there, and it’s fun to learn!

Here are a few of the subjects discussed on this week’s Liberty Net, along with my take on them:

• Chicago is quickly turning into another Detroit, like an African city in North America. There have been 500 confirmed homicides there so far this year, almost all perpetrated by Blacks. (59 minutes)

Liberty-Net---glowing-KT88-tubesby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

AS HALF of North America is blanketed with a thick coat of freezing snow, there is no better time to gather in our warm radio rooms and communicate with like-minded free thinkers all across the continent on one of the first electronic social networks ever developed — the Liberty Net, going strong since 1974.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/16

Here’s my summary of, and commentary on, some of the subjects discussed on the net this week:

• Poorly-informed patriots are often heard to say things like “2016 will be the year that elections are canceled by Obama” or “this year the New World Order will finally take away our freedom.” These statements are more than a bit bizarre in the light of the fact that 1) our most important freedoms have already been taken away from us and 2) mass democratic elections, always dominated by the unintelligent and easily-fooled majority, are the way the oligarchs control us — and so their cancellation would be nothing to bewail. (19 minutes)

• Another famous and long-running American brand has been sold to China — this time it’s General Electric appliances. So-called “free trade” is a way of increasing the wealth of the oligarchs at the expense of our own working people. (30 minutes)

Liberty Net - 808

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

SUMMERTIME CONDITIONS have been pretty mild this year so far, but it’s till a good idea to run as much clean legal power as you can muster when confronted with high static levels or with widely-separated check-ins — always consider the reception conditions at the station most distant from you, or who might be in the middle of a thunderstorm. Building or buying a quality power amplifier is doing a kindness to the other fellow!

Listen: Liberty Net 7/19

Here is my selection from among the ideas discussed during this week’s Liberty Net session:

• With the stroke of a pen, another treasonous illegal “executive order” has banned imports of Russian-made AK-47s, restricting Americans’ freedom, causing small businesses to close their doors, and presaging more acts of economic war against the one major European nation which is resisting the oligarchs. (12 minutes)

• Ever since one of their spacecraft crashed in the Siberian wilderness in the 1960s, Russia’s cosmonauts have been provided with pistols and shotguns aboard their vessels. (15 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Collins-75A-1

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

IN A WORLD filled with crises, looming genocide, misrule by the super-wealthy oligarchs, and a rising nationalist movement for self-determination, it’s quite astounding that anyone can be interested in professional ball teams. For those who are truly engaged with world events, the Liberty Net is an oasis of thought and ideas in a world of lying propaganda and meaningless entertainment.

Listen: Liberty Net 7/12

Here is my selection of the issues brought up during this week’s session:

• The level of conformity and ignorance has reached such heights in this country that a Liberty Net participant was charged with “harassment” because he walked through his neighborhood listening to a portable shortwave radio looking for an interference source. (24 minutes)

• The entire concept of “preventive law” — having to ask permission of a commissar or commission or bureaucrat before engaging in an ordinary business or other activity — is repugnant to free people. (27 minutes)

Liberty-Net---broadcast-microphones

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE HUGE ELEPHANT in the room that “polite” conservatives and liberals in Western nations are not supposed to notice is mass immigration and the looming extinction of the White race. And that’s not the only “taboo” — but very important — topic that Liberty Net participants are unafraid to discuss. Check in and add your voice this week!

Listen: Liberty Net 7/5

Here is my selection from the ideas discussed this week during the latest meeting of the Liberty Net:

• The same politicians who complain the loudest of the “greedy rich” (in order to get the votes of the ignorant) raise funds with $35,000-a-plate dinners. I assure you, the “greedy rich” (the ones who want political favors) are the only ones who attend. (4 minutes)

• In Thailand, criticizing the military government, wearing the wrong t-shirt, or reading Orwell’s 1984 can get you thrown into an “attitude adjustment” camp. The detainees’ relatives are not even told where their family members are being held. (11 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Telfunken-logo

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

ONE OF THE lessons learned by Liberty Net participants is the utter worthlessness of party politics. The Democrats are out in the open: They want White genocide through mass immigration and forced integration. The Republicans want the same thing, but are somewhat loathe to admit it since it would alienate their constituency. Alienation is the correct response to the phony “democracy” we are force-fed these days. Check in to the Liberty Net and think outside the box!

Listen: Liberty Net 6/28

Here is a small selection from the ideas discussed this week during the latest session of the Liberty Net:

• The IQ data for various nations are very interesting, and pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to be: Asian and White nations have high IQs, Mestizos and Arabs lower, and Blacks much lower. The fact that these groups perform much the same even after living for generations in other cultures shows that intelligence is largely heritable. (29 minutes)

• In Michigan, it is now mandated by our rulers that if you take your child aged 12 to 17 to the doctor, the child and the physician must have a private one-on-one session without you being present. (37 minutes)

Liberty-Net---new-worlds-for-old

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

HERE ARE SOME PRINCIPLES that are valid for 75 meter net operation — especially in the static-filled Summer season:

1. Run as much power as you need so that even the farthest and weakest net participant can hear you. Since the Liberty Net is an interactive net, having only the Net Control Station (NCS) hear you is less than optimal.

2. If you use a vertical or inverted L antenna, use a full size quarter-wave element (or longer — 150′ is great length for 75 meters) if at all possible, and use an excellent ground system. Elevated radials work better than radials on the ground.

3. If you use a horizontal antenna, make sure it’s a full half wave long (or longer), even if you have to make the ends hang down vertically for a few feet.

4. Horizontal antennas should be a quarter wave above the ground or more if at all possible. For 75 meters, that’s about 60 feet. (If you can get the feedpoint up to 100 feet, so much the better.) If you must use an inverted vee configuration, get the ends up as high as you can, at least 30 feet.

The last three suggestions will maximize the efficiency of your antenna system, crucial for being heard well on a crowded and noisy band.

Here are just a few of the ideas debated and discussed during this session of the Liberty Net:

• What is it about Black “youths” in America that makes them willing to wait in days-long lines for — and spend more than a month’s food budget on — some very ordinary athletic shoes? (7 minutes)

• The mental gyrations that supporters of the wars for Israel have to engage in must be painful: Witness the functionaries of the Zionist oligarchs saying we “have to fight” on the side of Iran (which these same functionaries want to bomb) in order to drive out the ISIS revolutionaries in Iraq — who are themselves associated with the Syrian rebels Washington supports (!) and who are, in addition, associated with al-Qaeda. Confused yet? A better idea: Stop supporting Israel in any way and especially stop fighting her wars for her. (27 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Collins-75A-4

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is an amateur radio institution — on the air since 1974 — devoted to a free exchange of information and ideas, now with sessions on both Saturday and Wednesday nights at 10PM Eastern Time.

Listen: Liberty Net 6/11

Here’s a small selection of some of the items brought up and debated this week on the Liberty Net:

• In Chicago, the theme of this year’s prom at Paul Robeson High School was “This Is Are Story,” and that’s exactly what all the graphics and invitations stated in prominent, large letters, complete with the “alternative Ebonic” spelling. (2 minutes)

• Speaking of the African-run Chicago public school system, some 40 per cent. of high school freshmen there do not graduate, despite insanely huge grade inflation, and fully 91 per cent. of those who do graduate have to take remedial courses because they have not mastered basic math and other subjects. The average — mind you, just the average — teacher in the Chicago Public Schools makes $76,000 a year plus a very generous benefit package. (4 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Collins-51S-1

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is an “electronic social medium” with roots that go back 40 years. Dedicated to free speech and the free exchange of ideas, it serves the public interest, convenience, and necessity like no other amateur radio institution.

Listen: Liberty Net 6/7

Here’s a small selection of some of the items brought up and debated this week on the Liberty Net:

• Liberty Net participants who want a copy of WA1HRJ’s two-hour documentary on what’s really going on in Washington should write to wa1hrj at aol dot com. (22 minutes)

• Why is the Washington regime busing thousands of illegal aliens from Texas to Arizona and unceremoniously dumping them there? Is this retaliation from Washington because of Arizona’s attempts to enforce immigration laws? (30 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Hallicrafters-HT-37

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is an oasis of free speech and excitement in a desert of censorship, self-censorship, and boring, controlled blandness. Check in — and check it out — today!

Listen: Liberty Net 5/31

Here I’ve made a small selection of some of the ideas brought up and debated this week on the Liberty Net:

• It’s official: 47 per cent. of unemployed Americans have simply given up looking for work. This is good news for the regime, since their phony “unemployment” figures don’t include people who are not actively seeking a job. (10 minutes)

• Two Rochester, New York radio hosts were recently fired because they expressed the opinion that taxpayer money should not be used to pay for so-called “sex change” surgery. (“Sex changes” actually don’t exist, since it’s simply impossible to change the DNA coding that absolutely determines your sex, which is encoded into trillions of cells in your body, which far outnumber the stars in the Milky Way galaxy.) (11 minutes)
