Liberty-Net---window

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

FEWER AND FEWER Americans get their news from the controlled media — and more and more are watching and reading alternative news sources not under the thumbs of the oligarchs. Check in to the Liberty Net, and you can speak directly with intelligent consumers of — and contributors to — the free media that have bloomed in recent years.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/8

Here’s a very small sample of the concepts discussed on the net this week:

• Think “digital rights management” of mp3 music is annoying and ridiculous? It gets worse. Even coffee machine manufacturer Keurig is now adding features that will prevent you from using any other brands of coffee, filters, or cups in future models of their coffee brewers. (16 minutes)

• When Microsoft ended support for Windows XP recently, thousands of banks who use the operating system were left in the lurch. When hackers develop new exploits for XP, Microsoft won’t being providing any patches or fixes. (19 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Pure-radio-magic-HQ-150

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

N2IRJ, Marty, continued to operate as Net Control Station for the Liberty Net this week. Marty also has a phone patch available for participation of those without on-air facilities. Use the contact form on this site if you’d like to be put on the air via the patch.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/1

Here’s a very small sample of the concepts discussed on the net this week:

• It turned out to be illegal for the NSA to collect and save the webcam images of millions of Yahoo users. No problem, though: The NSA just hired GCHQ, the British spook agency, to do it for them. Hat tip to Edward Snowden for this news! (9 minutes)

• A new study shows that mixed race children are far more prone to mental health issues than are children whose parents are of the same race. (11 minutes)

Liberty-Net---street-Shure-microphone

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

N2IRJ, Marty, capably performed all Net Control Station duties during this week’s Liberty Net, taking the helm from W1WCR who had family obligations. Thanks Marty!

Listen: Liberty Net 2/22

Here’s a select sample of some of the concepts and ideas debated and discussed this week:

• Uber-oligarch George Soros is not only giving money to violent factions in Ukraine, but is also giving money to US Republicans who oppose the grass-roots Tea Party factions. (33 minutes)

• Why is the Pope demanding that Europe take in huge numbers of Third World “refugees” — and utterly failing to demand that Africa and Asia do the same thing? (47 minutes)

Liberty-Net---amazing-Eddystone-radio

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THIS WEEK the Liberty Net welcomes Steve, N8WGM back to the airwaves after many years of being off the air — and we also give our thanks to N2SAG and N2IRJ for keeping Steve’s interesting commentary on the net through their excellent phone patches.

Listen: Liberty Net 2/15

Here’s a small selection of some of the ideas brought up on this week’s Liberty Net session:

• The recent death of Shirley Temple brings to mind the much healthier entertainment world of the Old America — compared to the disgusting debasement of, say, Miley Cyrus which typifies our era. (9 minutes)

• With Comcast/NBC buying Time Warner, we see even further consolidation of the very few media companies which control almost all that we see and hear — with Jewish media dynasties even more solidly in charge. (13 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Crosley-radio

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

IT LOOKS LIKE participation in the Liberty Net and the Survival Net is up with the new unified start times for all nets of 10PM Eastern. This helps western stations have take advantage of nighttime propagation, will work better as the longer days approach us, and the ionosphere seems to be doing better now around that time.

Listen: Liberty Net 2/1

Here’s a selection of some of the subjects on this week’s Liberty Net session:

• The banker’s regime in Washington is now proposing a “retirement account” called “My RA” which forces people into investing in worthless government bonds, which pay interest below the current inflation rate and should therefore be renamed “certificates of guaranteed confiscation.” (11 minutes)

• We’ve had the “war on poverty” and the “war on drugs” and the “war on terror” — and they’re all fake. But what we really have is a war on liberty. (15 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Unisphere-microphone

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THERE ARE few things better than cozying up to your shortwave gear in a warm room on a cold Winter’s night and talking with your friends on the Liberty Net. And ionospheric conditions have been improving 75 meter propagation lately, making the enjoyment even greater. Don’t forget that the Midweek Liberty Net (on Wednesdays) and the Survival Net (on Sundays) have changed their start times to 10PM Eastern.

Listen: Liberty Net 2/1

Here’s a selection of some of the subjects on this week’s Liberty Net session:

• One of the most popular broadcasts of the recent “State of the Union” address was Alex Jones’s — and Jones gave a continual, and hilarious, running commentary during the speech. (6 minutes)

• There are still classical orchestras and choral groups throughout our nation, but they are less known than in previous decades, largely because the billionaires’ media put much more emphasis on ghetto/trash “culture.” (13 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Collins-S-line

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is one of the most courteous nets around — not tied to one particular frequency, the net always strives to avoid interference by being frequency agile.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The Survival Net and Midweek Liberty Net have switched their start time to 10PM Eastern Time effective immediately.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/25

Here’s a small sample of some of the ideas brought up for discussion on this week’s Liberty Net:

• The continual issuance of debt-money — “quantitative easing to infinity” — has seriously inflated the stock market, and when the oligarchs are forced to slow the flow, expect the market to fall. (5 minutes)

• Some malls have been forced to set up fake storefronts so the place doesn’t look quite as abandoned as it actually is. (13 minutes)

Liberty-Net---SP-600-receiver

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

EVEN THOUGH we are near a sunspot peak, the 75 meter band persists in acting as if we’re at a sunspot minimum, making nearby and medium-distance stations very hard to hear at times. But thanks to relay stations at greater distances, like KK4WX in Georgia, the Liberty Net continues to communicate quite effectively.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/18

Here’s a selection of some of the ideas brought up on this week’s session:

• Acknowledging that people ought to be able to medicate themselves however they see fit, it would still be good to know if marijuana has gone through the same series of tests for possible carcinogenic properties as tobacco and other drugs. (15 minutes)

• For maximum privacy, Microsoft Windows users should turn off automatic crash reporting. (23 minutes)

Liberty-Net---Rogers-Majestic-radio

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

YOU ARE INVITED to participate in amateur radio’s Liberty Net, and you can now do so not only on our traditional Saturday night session, but on Wednesday evenings as well.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/8

Here’s a selection of some of the concepts debated on this week’s Wednesday net get-together:

• One hopeful sign: Only a bare majority of Americans identify with either one of the Establishment political parties anymore. (13 minutes)

• Is it true that the herbicide “Roundup” has the same active ingredient as Agent Orange? And is it a good idea to let this sort of stuff seep into your groundwater? (22 minutes)

Liberty-Net---radio-drawing

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THIS IS the 40th anniversary year of amateur radio’s Liberty Net, the premier free speech and current events discussion net on amateur radio. I’m very pleased to be a part of the net’s ever-increasing circle of authentic sharing and community-building.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/4

Here’s a selection of the concepts brought forward on the net this week:

• The loyalty that some people have to professional sports teams is almost unbelievable. It’s as if the loyalty they ought to have to their race and nation has been transferred to a bunch of hired ball chasers. (19 minutes)

• Despite the false arrests and actual murders of members of Greece’s Golden Dawn, the group is standing strong — and recently a Greek bishop gave them full support. For news direct from the source, check out http://xaamerica.podomatic.com/ (44 minutes)
