Liberty Net: October 8, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

ONE THING TO CONSIDER when checking in to the Liberty Net is the efficiency of your transmitting antenna. Commercial antenna solutions are usually inferior to home made wire antennas on 75 meters, and tall trees are your friend. Full size (even if the ends have to hang down vertically) dipoles and inverted vees, preferably 50 to 80 feet up at the feedpoint, do well, as do full size verticals or inverted Ls with elevated counterpoises or extensive radial systems.

This week we also welcomed Marty, N2IRJ back to the net after a too-long absence!

Here are some of the ideas discussed this time on amateur radio’s longest-running and most exciting discussion net:

• Why has the CBS reporter who was the leading journalist covering the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal suddenly been taken off the air and declared “unavailable” by her network bosses? (23 minutes)

• Why do the old media go out of their way, when describing flash mob attacks by Blacks on Whites, to avoid mentioning race — instead using such weasel words as “teenagers,” “youths,” and the like? (32 minutes)

Liberty Net: July 3, 2010

N2SAG’s commentary on this week’s Liberty Net was an unusually powerful indictment of the international parasites who have set themselves up as oligarchs and illegally rule the Western world. It’s worthy of archiving permanently and sending to your friends. It starts about 1 hour and 19 minutes into the recording.

Here are a few examples of the literally dozens of subjects you’ll hear on this week’s recording:

• Everybody who isn’t an oligarch agrees that the Afghanistan War is a disaster for America. So why are we still there? — and why are neocons in the Republican party attacking their own leader for telling a small part of this obvious truth? — and why did Obama break his promise to sign the order to bring the troops back “the day he was sworn into office”? (1 hour 7 minutes)

Liberty Net: June 19, 2010

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)
