Liberty Net: October 22, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

A LOT OF WORK is going on behind the scenes to let some of the Liberty Net participants who are temporarily off the air take part via phone patch on N2IRJ. The same patch would also allow non-amateur guests to take part in the discussions. Look for results this week or next!

Here are some of the ideas brought to light this time on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• The price tag for allowing the alleged “Nobel Peace Prize” president to murder Qaddafi was at least $1.3 billion. (14 minutes)

• Now that they hope the American fools have forgotten the 2011 deadline for withdrawal from Iraq, the regime is declaring that our troops “need to stay” — indefinitely. (16 minutes)

THERE ARE MANY NEW stations checking into the Liberty Net these days, so the word is definitely getting out. Temporarily, though, one of the net’s biggest signals and most knowledgeable participants, Al, N2SAG, is off the air. We all wish him well as he transitions to a new station setup, and look forward to his speedy return to the net.

Here are some of the concepts discussed and debated this week on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion (as opposed to traffic, or mere rag-chewing) net, on the air since 1974:

• The Washington regime is now sending combat troops into the Hell that is Uganda — supposedly to kill the warlords behind the so-called “Lord’s Resistance Army.” Knowing the history and demographics of the region, the opposition is likely little better, if at all. (19 minutes)

ONE THING TO CONSIDER when checking in to the Liberty Net is the efficiency of your transmitting antenna. Commercial antenna solutions are usually inferior to home made wire antennas on 75 meters, and tall trees are your friend. Full size (even if the ends have to hang down vertically) dipoles and inverted vees, preferably 50 to 80 feet up at the feedpoint, do well, as do full size verticals or inverted Ls with elevated counterpoises or extensive radial systems.

This week we also welcomed Marty, N2IRJ back to the net after a too-long absence!

Here are some of the ideas discussed this time on amateur radio’s longest-running and most exciting discussion net:

• Why has the CBS reporter who was the leading journalist covering the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal suddenly been taken off the air and declared “unavailable” by her network bosses? (23 minutes)

• Why do the old media go out of their way, when describing flash mob attacks by Blacks on Whites, to avoid mentioning race — instead using such weasel words as “teenagers,” “youths,” and the like? (32 minutes)

AS THE IONOSPHERIC propagation improves — both from rising sunspot numbers and because of the change in seasons — checking in and listening to the most intellectually exciting discussion net on amateur radio, the Liberty Net, is easier and more pleasurable than ever.

Listen: Liberty Net 10/1

Here are some of the issues brought up this week on amateur radio’s best-known discussion net:

• With Ron Paul polling better against Obama than any other candidate, why are the billionaire-owned media almost universally failing to mention that fact? (10 minutes)

• Except for Paul, all of the current candidates are employees of the financial elite — and one of them, Herman Cain, was at one time a high official of the Federal Reserve System. (28 minutes)

Liberty Net: September 24, 2011

THE FIRST AUTUMN SESSION of the Liberty Net showed the promise of good propagation, low noise, and fine comradeship coupled with the free exchange of ideas that can remake our world.

Listen: Liberty Net 9/24

Here are some of the ideas debated this week on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion net:

• Why is there a near-total corporate media blackout on the Occupy Wall Street protests now going on? Could it be because both Left and Right have figured out where the real problem lies? (14 minutes)

• Is the near-immobility of 401K funds — you can’t quickly switch out of a falling stock in a few seconds, like you can in a self-directed IRA — something that was purposely designed into the system? (33 minutes)
