Liberty Net: January 31, 2015

Liberty-Net---N2IRJ-meter-panelby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THERE ARE few things quite as pleasant as sitting by a warm fire — or a warm vacuum tube amplifier — in the Winter and relaxing and communicating interesting ideas with one’s friends spread all across the continent. Try it sometime — check into the Liberty Net.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/31

Here’s an abbreviated digest and commentary on some of the issues brought up on the Liberty Net this time:

• The state of Massachusetts has taken the ominous step of requiring “EZ Pass” use for drivers on its toll roads — meaning that your movements will be tracked and you must have a bank account which is also linked to this data. (11 minutes)

• The state of New Jersey, ostensibly to “punish” wandering homeless people, have demanded that all owners of private video surveillance cameras, including those on private homes, be registered with and be made accessible to the state, including significant record-keeping requirements. Surveillance cameras (and microphones) in the boardrooms of banks and lobby groups sounds like a much better idea. (16 minutes)

Liberty-Net---silver-pocket-watch2by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

EVERY once in a while it’s good to review the necessary frequency spacing need for voice communications on the amateur bands. It’s a complex subject, but you should follow these basics: Listen carefully to the other nearby conversations, determine the transmitted bandwidth being used (hint: these days, it’s not always 3 kHz) then pick a frequency that will not cause any overlap between your transmitted bandwidth and theirs. (You do know your own transmitted bandwidth, right?) And, if at all possible, don’t cozy up as close as you can — leave a kHz or two extra. Even the telephone company, when they started using multiplex SSB signals (with carefully controlled levels) for their long-haul circuits, used 4 kHz spacing for an audio bandwidth of about 3.5 kHz.

Here are some short extracts from, and commentary on, a few of the discussions that took place on the Liberty Net this session:

• One great flaw in the US Constitution is that it has no way to deal with an enemy within who is overtly organized as a religion, such as the Islamic and Jewish power structures. (36 minutes)

• Is the oil market being manipulated by the oligarchs in an effort to harm Russia? (40 minutes)

Liberty-Net---mixer-boardby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET can’t offer you a free cell phone or an EBT card — but we can offer you refreshing, open, and honest discussions of the great questions of our day that you simply can’t get anywhere else. Check in, learn, and speak your mind today!

Listen: Liberty Net 1/17

Here’s my brief selection from, and commentary on, a few of the discussions that took place on the Liberty Net this week:

• The endless debasement of banker-controlled currencies is an endless race to the bottom, and even nations like Switzerland that don’t want to “play the game” are forced to do so or see their exports plummet. Time to put the bankers on trial for their theft and deceptions. (7 minutes)

• Recently, a newspaper in Israel digitally edited three women out of a picture of European leaders attending a free speech march. The Jewish editors say they feel that “pictures of women should not be displayed,” proving that Orthodox Judaism has notable similarities to radical Islam. (26 minutes)

Liberty-Net---colorful-buttonby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET has been using 3995 kHz most of the time these days, but this week we were on 3982 because 3995 was in use prior to the net. The Liberty Net is one of the few nets that is frequency flexible because we are as careful as possible not to cause interference to ongoing QSOs.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/10

Here’s a brief digest of, and commentary on, a few of the discussions on the Liberty Net this time:

• All White countries now have a negative birth rate. Only Russia is doing anything meaningful to reverse this fatal trend. The “West” is doing the opposite of what is needed, by encouraging mass non-White immigration which is essentially committing suicide. (14 minutes)

• Iowa had the courage to fight back against the Mestizo invasion: Recently they sent a planeload of Honduran illegals back to Honduras. (30 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Eimac-tubesby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE IONOSPHERE has been unsettled lately, but the highly-efficient transmitting and receiving antennas used by key Liberty Net stations have served us well, and communications were mostly unimpaired. The ionosphere may be somewhat erratic, but at least it can never be turned off by would-be censors.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/3

Here are some of my selections from the ideas and debates on the Liberty Net this session:

• Why are there some amateur radio operators so ignorant — and authority-worshipping — that they believe that “politics can never be discussed on amateur radio”? (7 minutes)

Liberty-Net---6146-tubeby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

AS WE BEGIN the 41st year of the Liberty Net’s existence, let’s reaffirm our dedication to telling the truth — and to defending our free speech rights against any and every would-be censor.

Listen: Liberty Net 12/27

Here are a few selections from the ideas and debates on the Liberty Net this week:

• The reasons for the importation of so many manufactured goods into the US include one that is seldom spoken about yet quite important: the growing percentage of practically unemployable and untrainable low-IQ Africans and Mestizos in the population. (18 minutes)

• There’s a move afoot for taxpayers to fund FDIC insurance for the huge and risky derivatives market, which means that small businessmen and poor Midwestern and Appalachian farmers will be — once again — taking on the risks incurred by Wall Street bankers and speculators. (22 minutes)

Liberty-Net---R390A-VU-meter

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THIS YEAR, 2014, is the 40th anniversary of the Liberty Net. The net began in 1974, which was the year I graduated from high school — and I am now 58.

Through all that time, every week with hardly ever an absence, Victor Misek, W1WCR, has been our Net Control Station. That’s 2,080 Liberty Nets and counting. If we estimate four and a half hours per net, that’s 9,360 hours of net discussions, or approximately 84,240,000 words spoken — the equivalent of about 900 sizable volumes, many scores of encyclopedias. And I’m not even counting the times Vic has participated in the Survival Net, the Midweek Liberty Net, or innumerable informal discussions.

Fearless when it comes to taking on taboo subjects — open to discussions with those with whom he disagrees — never a censor — able to bridge the gap between participants who are having a dispute — unrelenting in condemning the activities of malicious jammers, and the inaction of the FCC which is charged with keeping the airwaves free — and courageous in calling treason by its true name — Vic, W1WCR has been a facilitator of intellectual and philosophical growth and insight like few people on this planet. No one else could have done what he did — and what he is still doing in 2014, soon to be 2015 and beyond.

With the Liberty Net, he has taken amateur radio to a new level of intelligence, interest, and public service in the true sense of the term. Always loyal to liberty — always true to the principle of free speech — kind to all, but always stalwart in support of the continued survival of his people, the founding race of the United States of America — Victor Misek is an example for us all, for amateur radio operators and truth-tellers of the next generation; truly an example for the ages.

I am proud to call him my friend.

Thank you, Vic.

On this year 40 of the Liberty Net, I raise my glass and say: Hail to you Victor and long live liberty — and the Liberty Net.

Listen: Liberty Net 12/20

Here’s my selection of the ideas and concepts brought up on the Liberty Net this time:

• Fewer Americans are working now than seven years ago — but more illegal Mestizo invaders are working here now than ever before. (12 minutes)

liberty-net---RCA-compressor-limiter

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

WHEN THE FCC refuses to do anything about egregious and admitted malicious jammers who operate on the amateur bands literally for decades, and who die without any action being taken against them — and when legitimate operators are harassed and threatened by that same FCC, what conclusions should we draw?

Listen: Liberty Net 12/13

Here’s my selection of the ideas and concepts brought up on the Liberty Net this time:

• It’s a outrage that our so-called “representatives” in Washington dare to vote for a multiple-trillion-dollar budget comprising thousands of pages that aren’t even fully available for reading yet. (15 minutes)

• Millions of men in the West are suffering due to the unnatural and anti-Life bias against males in our society, causing many to give up on marriage and children — a monumental tragedy. (17 minutes)

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

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

SINCE THE 75 METER band seems to be getting more and more traffic around 3995 kHz LSB, where the Liberty Net normally congregates, it would be helpful if some net participants could show up an hour or so early and start a QSO when the frequency is clear and open — and then turn it over to the Net Control Station (NCS) at the appointed time.

Listen: Liberty Net 4/5

Here are just a few of the topics brought to light during the net this week:

• The Washington regime’s phony “investment” plan, MyRA, is predicted to be an abject failure. And that’s no surprise: The instrument forces the suckers to invest in government bonds with an effective negative rate of return, plus a tax obligation. (34 minutes)

• With new shortwave receivers being sold and developed constantly, is it not odd that so many shortwave broadcasters are being shut down, dismantled, or mothballed, with the excuse being a declining audience? (50 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Edison-record

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

SOON WE’LL be adding a list of interesting books that have been discussed on the Liberty Net. The new page will be accessible via the tabular menu at the top of this site under the heading “Books.” Look for it soon!

Listen: Liberty Net 3/29

Here’s a small selection of the comments and debates put forward on the net this session:

• Why did the FCC allow the lobbyists to change the rules, which now allow the importation of plasma television receivers which radiate huge amounts of RF interference all over the HF spectrum? (30 minutes)

• A recent book, Debtor Nation by Jim Staack, discusses an America in the not-too-distant future in which everyone is required to be in debt, including “life starting loans” for newborns. (35 minutes)
