Liberty Net: November 27, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE CONTINUING ANNOYANCE of DRM transmissions from the BBC means that the weekly Saturday night Liberty Net is meeting a little higher up the band than usual, this week on 3969 kHz. But participants are getting used to the change, since check-ins were numerous despite ionospheric disturbances that made close-in stations fade at times.

Listen: 11/27 Liberty Net

Here’s an abbreviated list of the issues debated and discussed this time on amateur radio’s most venerable discussion net:

• A Spanish woman has now officially registered the Sun as her personal property. She claims that the international law which prohibits ownership of our home star by any government does not apply to individuals, and she will soon be charging all “Sun users” a fee, of which she will generously keep only 10 per cent. (1 hour 6 minutes)

Liberty Net: November 20, 2010

RADIO CONDITIONS were unsettled this week, but N2IRJ’s superb low-noise receiving setup allowed excellent copy of almost all stations on the latest session of the Liberty Net, and there were a large number of new stations checking in as the word spreads about the most exciting net on amateur radio. Since the BBC’s DRM transmission has been wiping out the area around 3950 kHz (why can’t the broadcasters move to 90 meters and leave 75 meters alone?), the net has been favoring 3966 kHz.

Listen: 11/20 Liberty Net

Here’s a small sample of the issues discussed this time on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion net:

• We hear an amazing firsthand account of W8LDW’s recent experiences with “airport security” and the TSA, who are criminally violating our constitutional rights with their so-called “enhanced security” procedures. These blue-shirted, gold-badged bureaucrats treat Americans as “animals to be contained and caged and poked and prodded and irradiated.” (25 minutes)

Liberty Net: November 13, 2010

THE IONOSPHERE is still acting strangely as we transition into Winter conditions, but the sharing of brilliant insights and suppressed news continued at a high pace on this week’s Liberty Net. The DRM digital audio transmissions from Britain on 3955 — which effectively wipe out 3949 to 3964 kHz for hours — continue, so the net used a frequency a bit outside of its normal range this time: 3966 kHz.

Listen: 11/13 Liberty Net

Here’s a sample of the ideas brought forth this time on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion net:

• As countries (like the US and China) race to devalue their own currencies to gain a temporary trade advantage, bankers rake in profits from the easy money (that they create) and, as always, individuals and families find their wealth evaporating. (29 minutes)

• The insanely punitive estate tax that Washington is about to impose is causing many productive and intelligent people to simply leave the country — and who can blame them? No one wants his life’s work to feed the illegal regime in Washington and all its genocidal programs. (36 minutes)

Liberty Net: October 16, 2010

THE LIBERTY NET is a gathering of thoughtful, philosophical minds and well-informed sources every week, and this time was no exception — and noise was so low that even the weakest signals were perfectly understandable. Warm up your radios every Saturday night and join in the discussion on or near 3950 kHz SSB at 10PM Eastern Time.

Listen: 10/16 Liberty Net

Here are some examples of the real free speech and free thought the Liberty Net is famous for:

• Now that US taxpayers are paying millions to bring Hamas refugees here, maybe it’s time to rethink our immigration and foreign policies. By angering — and then importing — Muslims, we are essentially jamming a stick into a beehive, and then gathering the angry bees and bringing them into our homes. (56 minutes)

LOW STATIC LEVELS and rising sunspot numbers created a 75 meter band that was a real pleasure to listen to during this week’s Liberty Net, and the free flow of uncensored ideas and information was an excellent stimulant for those still capable of independent thought.

Listen: 10/9 Liberty Net

Here are a few topics covered this time on the most exciting net on the amateur radio bands, the Liberty Net, on the air since 1974:

SHORTWAVE RADIO PROPAGATION went very long during this week’s Liberty Net, despite the higher sunspot numbers, but noise was extremely low and almost all stations, even the low power ones, were heard clearly. Remember, if you can’t listen to the Liberty Net on or near 3950 kHz on Saturday nights at 10PM Eastern time, you can listen any time right here on https://3950.net.  You can even download the file for listening on your personal mp3 player.

Liberty Net: September 25, 2010

THE IONOSPHERE was reflecting signals so beautifully during the Liberty Net this week that many of the stations on 75 meters sounded like locals on 2 meters, which made for an effortless exchange of the hard-to-find information and insights that make the net famous.

Listen: 9/25 Liberty Net

Here’s a tiny selection of the topics discussed this week on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion net, on the air since 1974:

• Why is it so difficult for people of European descent to become American citizens these days — a process that can take years or decades when it is even allowed to happen  — when, according to the founding fathers, they should be the only ones allowed to become citizens at all? (10 minutes)

Liberty Net: September 18, 2010

THE TOTALLY BOGUS nature of the Republican establishment was a major focus of the Liberty Net this last week of Summer, and propagation coöperated to make the dialogue audible across most of the continent.

Expect even better conditions as the Fall season approaches and static dies down.

Listen/dl Sep. 18 Liberty Net

Here’s a small sample of the items discussed this week on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• The criminals in Congress are seriously discussing seizing private pension plans and forcibly merging them into the bankrupt “Social Security” system. (20 minutes)

• Did you know that a “dirty capitalist” American business owner made two recent broadcasts over Radio Havana in Cuba? And did you know that he was a regular Liberty Net participant? (37 minutes)

Liberty Net: July 17, 2010

THE LIBERTY NET is one place on the radio dial where there are no government or commercial “gatekeepers” — and it’s a place where thoughtful and intelligent people are drawn — and therefore it’s one of the most informative and thought-provoking information sources anywhere.

Here are a few of this week’s topics:

• New York governor Patterson is apparently under attack by evil forces, because he’s decided to wear a “Kabballah bracelet” to ward them off. (The “Kabballah” is a form of medieval Jewish witchcraft that is enjoying a renaissance among the thoughtlessly trendy.) (38 minutes)

• Some prankster has arranged it so that if you enter “illuminati” spelled backwards, and add dot com, into your Internet browser, you will be redirected to the Web site of the National Security Agency. (42 minutes)

• Barack Obama is not an idiot, no matter how harmful his policies appear to be to his constituency: He is the quintessential blackmailable front man for the money power, with a “minority” cachet to provide a means to dehumanize any serious critics as “racists.” In this role he performs brilliantly.

PERHAPS THE LIBERTY Net could also be called the Philosophy Net, as there were many deep and reflective comments from participants this week.

The net — moderated by Vic, W1WCR and recorded by Marty, N2IRJ — proved itself once again as a bastion of free and unfettered speech.

There was some jamming of the net this week from one deranged individual who used gutter language and pretended to be a participant, but he didn’t fool anyone. Here’s proof in the form of an mp3 file that the jammer is the same (identified) individual who jammed the Marconi Net earlier the same evening:

Here is a tiny sampling of what you’ll hear on this week’s Liberty Net recording:

• If we gave the Chinese salvage rights for the spilled oil in the Gulf, how long would it take before it was all cleaned up? One month? (2 hours 52 minutes)

• Almost unmentioned by the controlled media, a huge American/Israeli war armada has passed through the Suez canal on the way to Iranian waters. Is another illegal Middle Eastern war about to begin? (2 hours 55 minutes)
