Liberty Net: March 26, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

LIBERTY NET check-ins continue to grow in  number, and N2IRJ’s repairs to his receiving system allowed him to catch them with good quality despite the increase in atmospheric static that comes with the advent of Spring. The fourth simultaneous US war in the Middle East, started by a supposedly anti-war president, was a major subject of debate. Add in the comments on diverse subjects ranging from the humorous to the deeply philosophical and you end up with a most enjoyable and educational experience.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/26

Here’s a small sample of some of the ideas that were discussed this time on the longest-running discussion net in amateur radio:

• A Bush-appointed judge in Florida may be setting a precedent by allowing an issue in a $2 million lawsuit there to be settled via Sharia Law. Meanwhile, the Florida legislature is considering a law to prevent any judge from doing that. (20 minutes)

• An recent initiative in California would require all public schools there to teach students to admire, even revere, homosexuals, transvestites, and their pathological behaviors. (23 minutes)

Liberty Net: March 19, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE CHAT ROOM that N2SAG runs during the Liberty Net got a visit from some probably paid (and not very competent) disruptors who tried (for less than an hour, so, if their employers are reading this, don’t let them bill you for more!) to conflate support for “our troops” into support for the oligarchs’ latest illegal war. Needless to say, it didn’t work. But you can expect any patriotic effort that exposes the crimes of the regime in Washington to draw such attention from the pension- and salary-drawing agents of America’s enemies.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/19

Here are a few highlights from the latest Liberty Net, the longest-running discussion net on the amateur airwaves:

• Why is such a large part of the wealth of America concentrated in the 400 richest families, many of whom are of Middle Eastern origin and consider themselves a special, separate people? And why has this same group decided to spend so much on bombing their erstwhile ally Qaddafi, while impoverished American grandmothers are starving? (15 minutes)

• If the disaster in Japan had happened in urban America, there would have been mass orgies of looting, rape, and murder such as we saw in New Orleans a few years ago. But in Japan, none of that occurred. Could it be that Japan has been wise to absolutely prevent all immigration of violent Third World equatorial populations? (25 minutes)

Liberty Net: March 12, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

75 METER CONDITIONS CONTINUED to be excellent for the Liberty Net as Spring approaches, but the band’s crowding — partly caused by DRM interference — required considerable frequency flexibility, and the net found itself on 3993 kHz, which turned out to be a nice clear frequency. Our thanks go out to the 3993 late night operators who courteously allowed the Liberty Net to use their customary spot on the band.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/12

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

• Will the tsunami-related power plant accidents in Japan be used to kill nuclear energy use in the West? (2 minutes)

• The manager of the nation’s largest bond fund has now dumped all of his holdings of US government bonds. (12 minutes)

• At least 145,000 public school teachers were physically attacked by “minority” students in 2008; over 12 per cent. of all city teachers — and some of these were also raped. Why was none of this mentioned when Obama’s “anti-bullying” campaign was launched with so much fanfare? (21 minutes)

Liberty Net for Week of February 13-20

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET was attacked by multiple jammers this week — stations purposely transmitting sound effects and unidentified rude remarks and obscenities — but, despite all the efforts of the would-be censors, the Net participants brought off one of the most interesting and thought-provoking discussions yet.

Listen to or download this week's Liberty Net

Jammers are less effective than ever, because listeners have multiple ways of hearing the Net these days: They can listen on their own receivers, or, by logging in to N2SAG’s Stickam site, listen to N2SAG’s or KC0OW’s receivers (or others that are sometimes available), or tune in via N2IRJ’s feed which is also recorded and archived here. With multiple receivers hundreds of miles apart — some with steerable-null antenna arrays — it’s possible to minimize any intentional interference. Furthermore, N2SAG is building an e-list of monitoring stations which he’ll be coordinating when the jammers are on the air. Using triangulation and propagation clues, along with the technical and behavior “signatures” of the jammers, many will be identified and removed from the air. Listen to the Net for more details.

The Liberty Net is the longest-running current events discussion net on amateur radio, and is one of the most venerable gatherings of amateurs on the air. It’s a bastion of free speech and free inquiry. Here are just a few of the topics discussed this week:

• It’s crazy for people to state, as some media “conservatives” have, that they “miss Bush.” Obama is just Bush on steroids. You can’t cure out-of-control spending and borrowing with more out-of-control spending and borrowing. (21 minutes)

• The SPLC probably won’t be making an anti-White cause celebre out of the shooter at the University of Alabama: she is Jewish and the SPLC, though it pretends otherwise, is not objective in such matters. Gun bans at universities, by the way, make it almost impossible to stop such crazies. (27 minutes)

• Goldman Sachs has colluded with corrupt elements in the Greek government to conceal the true extent of that government’s debt, in a scam that could devastate the European Union. (47 minutes)
