Liberty Net: April 23, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

N2IRJ’s W1WCR-DESIGNED Beverage antenna was back in action during the latest Liberty Net, and, if the increased check-ins of new stations are any indication, it seems that more and more people are discovering, enjoying, and participating in the longest-running discussion net on the amateur radio airwaves.

Listen: Liberty Net 4/23

Here are just a few of the subjects brought up and debated this week:

• To restore the American economy, massive numbers of useless or oppressive government employees must be let go; and our disastrous wars for Israel in the Mideast must be ended, and our troops withdrawn. But how will we keep these people out of the unemployment lines? It’s simple: Use our troops to expel the Mestizo invaders and then have them keep our southern border secure — millions of jobs will then become available for our own people. (23 minutes)

Liberty Net: April 16, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

A HUGE RAIN AND WIND storm enveloped eastern North America on Saturday, sent static into the ionosphere, and knocked down antennas — including N2IRJ’s low-noise Beverage. But back-ups were brought into play within an hour and the longest-running discussion net on amateur radio — the Liberty Net — brought its hallmark intellectual excitement to the airwaves in excellent form.

Listen: Liberty Net 4/16

Here’s a small sampling of some of the subjects brought up this time:

• In Chicago’s schools, students are now forbidden to bring lunches from home. Unless they have medical exemptions, students must buy government-provided lunches — brown bags from home will be confiscated. (18 minutes)

• Why is the regime in Washington spending $20 million on a Pakistani version of Sesame Street? Since the US version of the show was a pioneer in brainwashing children to accept multiracialism, the reason for the funding is doubtlessly to push some kind of propaganda. (1 hour 16 minutes)

Liberty Net: April 9, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

SUMMERTIME STATIC came crashing in early this year, but W1WCR and N2IRJ — through their extraordinary antenna technology — were able to copy all but the weakest check-ins to the latest Liberty Net. And, as the ionosphere heats up, so does the discussion of important issues that are covered up or distorted in the public media.

Listen: Liberty Net 4/9

Here are just a few of the topics discussed and debated during the latest session of the longest-running discussion net on the amateur radio airwaves:

• When radiation levels rise to unsafe levels, what’s a government to do? Just raise the legal definition of “safe,” that’s what — and, magically, everyone’s out of danger. (18 minutes)

• The Black race huckster, the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, is millions of dollars in arrears for federal taxes. Most White folks, especially patriot-oriented White folks, would be in jail in similar circumstances. So, what did Obama do with regard to the “Reverend”? He spoke at one of his conferences — and gave him a $1.5 million tax break. (45 minutes)

Liberty Net: April 2, 2011

THERE SEEM TO BE more new stations checking into the Liberty Net every week; why not join them? Getting an amateur radio license is simpler than ever before, and inexpensive training courses and classes are widely available.

Listen: Liberty Net 4/2

Here are just a few of the issues discussed and debated this week on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• Why is the regime in Washington supporting al-Qaeda in Libya but supposedly fighting it in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq? (14 minutes)

• One of the most bizarre twists in the latest illegal war is that the US troops who were training Qaddafi’s forces had to be quickly evacuated so that other US troops could be brought in to attack those same forces. (18 minutes)

WA3VJB and W3GMS on 40 Meters

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

HERE’S an mp3 of Paul, WA3VJB the other day on 7290 kHz as heard on my Racal RA6790/GM in its widest — 20 kHz — bandwidth.

Although my urban Charlottesville location adds some noise and my receive-only antenna is far from optimal, Paul’s Collins 300G still impresses with its round, dense, satisfying sound. It’s not often I get to use the 20 kHz filter. And it is great to hear a transmitter that I worked on many years ago (when it emitted 1 MHz waves instead of 7 MHz ones) on the air again and sounding better than ever.

And here’s another recent 7290 recording — this one of Joe, W3GMS.

Although a local plasma TV created some interference, the fantastic down-to-almost-DC frequency response of Joe’s rig (that makes any speaker sound better than an original Advent) comes through great in the Racal’s 20 kHz position.

The Racal’s synchrodyne AM detector is very interesting and reasonably high fidelity (as long as the AM station being received does not hit the 100% modulation baseline). I have modified the audio and AGC circuits in the Racal for better audio quality; they are a work in progress.

LIBERTY NET check-ins continue to grow in  number, and N2IRJ’s repairs to his receiving system allowed him to catch them with good quality despite the increase in atmospheric static that comes with the advent of Spring. The fourth simultaneous US war in the Middle East, started by a supposedly anti-war president, was a major subject of debate. Add in the comments on diverse subjects ranging from the humorous to the deeply philosophical and you end up with a most enjoyable and educational experience.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/26

Here’s a small sample of some of the ideas that were discussed this time on the longest-running discussion net in amateur radio:

• A Bush-appointed judge in Florida may be setting a precedent by allowing an issue in a $2 million lawsuit there to be settled via Sharia Law. Meanwhile, the Florida legislature is considering a law to prevent any judge from doing that. (20 minutes)

• An recent initiative in California would require all public schools there to teach students to admire, even revere, homosexuals, transvestites, and their pathological behaviors. (23 minutes)
