SOMETHING to consider during this lightning season is having the capability to disconnect your antenna when local strikes are occurring. At WB4AIO, I use a couple of 30-amp Powerpole connectors to attach the open wire feedline for my antenna to the open wire feedthrough tubes that go through the outside wall of my house.
When a storm gets close, I just walk out to the back yard, disconnect the feedline by pulling apart the connectors, and throw it back toward the woods patch about ten or fifteen feet away. Problem solved!
I also have high-value (about 20 megohms) resistors permanently connected across the feeders so that local precipitation or atmospheric fronts are incapable of causing a static DC buildup on the line.Listen: Liberty Net 4/30
Here are a few items heard on the Liberty Net this week along with my commentary:
• The sudden collapse of the Kasich and Cruz campaigns could be just exactly what it seems to be — but it also might be an indication that the oligarchs have found another and more effective way of containing and controlling Trump, who just hired a Jewish hedge fund CEO and former Goldman Sachs operative as his finance chief. (29 minutes)
• Yet another Confederate monument is being removed by the forces of Political Correctness, this time at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. When White genes are replaced by non-White genes, all of our heritage will ultimately be lost; that is how civilizations fall. (32 minutes)
• When you use the 3950.net streaming audio feed of the Liberty Net along with your own receiver, you are twice as likely to be able to understand what is being said in the presence of interference. On some signals, your local receiver may be the best, and on others the stream will be superior. (34 minutes)
• It is interesting that the neocons — those who lied us into the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, and the “War on Terror” on behalf of Israel — hate Trump passionately. So there must be at least something good about him. (46 minutes)
• Some of those pushing the “transgender” insanity are now claiming that there are 72 different known varieties of “gender identity.” What’s next? Transracial people who believe they’re another race? Transspecies people who believe they’re mice or microbes? (54 minutes)
• The Jewish oligarch George Soros, who openly boasts that he funds coups and takeovers around the world with his billions, needs to be arrested and have all his ill-gotten wealth returned to the people. (57 minutes)
The Liberty Net — amateur radio’s longest-running current events discussion net — is on the air every Saturday night at 10PM Eastern Time on the high side of 75 meter SSB (usually 3995 kHz). You might have to tune around, but we’re not hard to find. And don’t forget the Survival Net on Sundays and the Midweek Liberty Net on Wednesdays, all at 10 Eastern.
Remember, thanks to our Internet audio feed, you can enjoy the benefits of N2IRJ’s Beverage antenna and SDR reception capability (and WB4AIO’s SDR as a backup). And, as always, you can download the net recording right here at https://3950.net and listen whenever you like.Listen: Liberty Net 4/30
