Liberty-Net---the-power-of-radioby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

FOR MORE than a week, the ionospheric conditions on 75 meters have been very unstable, with short- and medium-distance skip varying wildly — between better than normal to extremely poor.

Here’s my short summary of and comment on a small selection of the topics brought up on this week’s session:

These “supertunnels” are quite common, and keep getting rebuilt after they are shut down. But, for some mysterious reason, they get very little press. (24 minutes)

• When the odious Hillary Clinton was interrogated recently, she let slip that the Washington regime’s mission in Libya was to overthrow Qadaffi, not to “protect civilians” as they had falsely claimed. (25 minutes)
