Liberty Net: June 16, 2012

AS WE ENTER the Summertime static season on 75 meters, it’s good for every Liberty Net participant to review what is necessary for an effective signal on that band: 1) Use a full size antenna, meaning a 120-foot half-wave dipole (or larger) horizontal antenna, or a full 60-foot quarter wave vertical with multiple radials. Inverted Ls larger than a half wave work well too with a good radial system and with the horizontal part a quarter wave or higher, as do full wave loops at a similar height. 2) Get that antenna up high in the air — straight up to 60 feet for verticals; 40 feet minimum for horizontals, but the higher the better up to 100 feet. 3) Run as much clean power as you can; even if you are strong to the Net Control Station, the more remote stations will appreciate the extra signal-to-noise ratio. 4) Run clean audio compression. Compression keeps the average audio level high and consistent, but make it clean like a broadcast station — clipping and other forms of distortion may increase the sensation of loudness but actually detract from intelligibility.

And remember this principle: Since atmospheric noise is high and is the limiting factor for reception on 75 meters, even a low and lossy antenna will receive just about as well as a high, efficient one. This leads some operators to think “I can hear them all fine on my 20-foot-high jumbled vee or trap vertical… they should hear me too.” Not true. To overcome the high noise and interference levels on this band and be heard well, you need the highest, most efficient antenna you can manage. It’s worth the effort.

Here is a small sampling of subjects from this week’s discussion:

• By Executive Order, the regime’s figurehead just “legalized” over 800,000 Mestizo invaders of our living space. (54 minutes)

• The widely-accepted (but insane and illegal) idea that legislatures can make any laws they want to make has led to the creation of “food police” laws in New York City, the alleged purpose of which is to prevent restaurants or movie theatres from selling drinks with “too many” calories per serving.

HOW DOES amateur radio serve the public interest?

We all know about technical education, emergency communications, and experimentation — but an ever-increasing number of radio amateurs are realizing just how valuable it is when it provides the means to bypass the billionaires’ controlled media and lets us find out about — and share — what is really happening in our own communities and around the world.

Listen: Liberty Net 6/9

Here are a just few of the highlights from this week’s conversation:

• Stocks have been a zero-sum game for a decade — real estate is a disaster — government debt is of ever more questionable value — and currencies are being purposely debauched. It seems that the only people who have come out ahead in recent years are crooked bankers who got bailed out (and can create money out of thin air anyway), and holders of precious metals. (12 minutes)

• We must sadly report the death of writer and economist Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster this week. He was a graduate of Northeastern University and was very active in the education of our people on financial and political matters since the 1960s, writing for the American Mercury and many other publications, and was often quoted on the Liberty Net.

Liberty Net: June 2, 2012

WHEN SMALL MINDS encounter open, reasoning minds, the result is often that the small minds attempt censorship. But the “gatekeeping” of editors — and the ADL/SPLC pressure on businesses and other entities — don’t mean much on the amateur radio airwaves. So the small minds are limited to (illegally) transmitting rude noises and the like in a futile attempt to stop communications on the Liberty Net. I say futile because many of the linchpin stations of the net have very substantial signals, and participants are able to hear at least two online streams of the net via N2SAG and N2IRJ (just follow the ‘Liberty Net live’ links in the left column of this site) in addition to their own receivers.

Listen: Liberty Net 6/2

Here are some excerpts from the debates and discussions that took place this week:

• Now that it’s finally been admitted that the Stuxnet virus was created by Israeli and “US” intelligence to purposely cause a nuclear disaster in Iran, how long will it be before that virus’s role in Fukushima will be acknowledged? A new, even more invasive virus called Flame has also been created by the same culprits. Don’t such attacks constitute acts of war? (25 minutes)

• The media’s blackout on Ron Paul’s victories — he won the state of Maine recently — is near total. For some reason or other, the media owners want to hide the fact that Paul has repeatedly garnered more delegates than the establishment shills, even after shill number one was declared “the victor.” (47 minutes)

THERE WERE A FEW feeble attempts to jam the Liberty Net in the last few weeks, but they were almost totally ineffective. It’s rather hard to wipe out a net that uses multiple antenna sites and multiple Internet audio streams — streams on which, by the way, several participants are streamed direct from their microphones to your speakers, making jamming impossible. The Internet adjuncts to the Liberty Net have also helped us zero in on jammers and silence them simply by determining their locations.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/26

Here are some of the ideas brought forth during this week’s session:

• The Secretary of State of Arizona recently requested a birth certificate from Hawaii for the billionaires’ figurehead “Barack Hussein Obama.” The result? Now there is yet a third suspicious and contradictory document to supplement the existing obvious forgeries. This time, there’s not even a pretense of it being an actual birth certificate — it’s simply a letter from an obscure official. (12 minutes)

• Why do European-Americans hate themselves so much that they willingly facilitate their own extinction? It has gone so far that Whites with no — or an undetectable trace of — Amerindian ancestry are claiming to be “Indians.” (26 minutes)

SELDOM DOES ONE get a chance to directly participate in significant dialogue and debate about the future of our civilization with truly aware and articulate men and women in today’s world. Most every “public debate” is carefully and expertly controlled to prevent you from thinking along channels not approved in advance by the oligarchs. But the weekly uncensored Liberty Net is a shining exception.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/19

Here are some of the ideas brought forth during this week’s session:

• The demise of Eastman Kodak — what is left of its corpse is now firmly in Chinese hands — is symptomatic of the looting of American manufacturing assets by Wall Street, usurers, and foreign interests. (8 minutes)

• Vic, W1WCR, the Net Control Station for the Liberty Net, was a regular correspondent of radio innovator Harold Beverage, who not only heard the Titanic’s distress call 100 years ago and invented the Beverage antenna, but whose ability to mathematically analyze antenna systems in the days before computers was nothing short of amazing.

THERE IS quite a range of opinion — and debate — on the weekly Liberty Net, and in many ways it can be regarded as a confluence, even a synthesis, of the best ideas from all sides of the political spectrum. To me the most interesting trend is the increasing recognition that the regime in Washington is an outlaw, illegal regime and is not the legitimate successor to the government set up by the Founders.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/12

Here are some of the ideas brought to light during this week’s Liberty Net:

• Why are 26 states contracting with a Soros-owned company in Spain to tally the votes in their elections — especially with Soros’ reputation for interfering with elections around the world? (9 minutes)

• When you hear a politician blathering about how we must “soak the rich,” you can be sure that the politician is working for the super rich — who definitely don’t like competition, and use the politics of envy to cripple any mid-level wealthy families and prevent them from rising to their level.

EVEN THE MUCH-TOUTED revolution-making social media like Facebook are, tragically, increasingly censored by “gatekeepers” who want to stifle the discussion of certain “forbidden” topics. That’s why it’s important to support multiple platforms for free speech and dissent — and one of the premier and longstanding forums for free speech is amateur radio’s Liberty Net, on the air since 1974.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/5

Here are some of the ideas introduced and debated during this week’s session:

• Are recent calls to “restore tribal lands” to Amerindians just a sucker play by elitists to balkanize America? It’s interesting to note, though, that some White American patriots look with favor on the declaration of independence of the Lakotah people, since they believe that anything that reduces the power of the regime in Washington is a good thing — and increases the chances for us to regain our independence, too. (20 minutes)

• Increasingly, local sheriffs are standing up to the Washington regime and protecting local citizens — and their constitutional rights — from federal tyranny. One Liberty Net participant suggests that these sheriffs deputize several thousand people in every county to form a strong, almost unchallengeable, pro-freedom force. (41 minutes)

THESE LIBERTY NET articles aren’t necessarily a summary of the whole net — or even the best parts thereof. Some people have asked how my excerpts are chosen. They’re just a few highlights that I’ve picked, often from the first two or three hours of the net, with an eye toward encouraging you to listen to the whole recording. You shouldn’t take offense if a favorite station or topic wasn’t chosen to be highlighted — to include all of the superb and interesting topics discussed on the net would take an article ten times as long as this one!

Listen: Liberty Net 3/10

Here are some of the subjects that net participants talked about during this week’s Liberty Net session:

• A resolution has been introduced in Congress, calling for the investigation and impeachment of Obama for illegally waging war in Libya. (21 minutes)

• A White schoolchild in Kansas City was recently doused with gasoline and set on fire by two Blacks, who shouted “This is what you deserve, White boy.” It’s been discovered that teachers at the majority-Black school there have been showing virulently anti-White films during “Black history month” and claiming that “all Whites” are responsible for “racism” and “oppression” of Blacks. The burning victim just happens to be the only White student in one such class. (32 minutes)

N2IRJ’s phone patch was temporarily down this week because of technical issues with Marty’s transceiver — we hope that these problems will soon be resolved — yet participation and exchange of ideas continued on the Liberty Net at a very high level nonetheless. This week also saw some major solar activity, so the next net might feature some interesting 75 meter propagation.

Listen: Liberty Net 3/3

Here are just a few of the ideas discussed and debated during this week’s session:

• Russia is positioning itself to prevent the plans of the warmongering oligarchs to start wars in Syria and Iran from coming to fruition. Most recently, Moscow has been helping both countries improve their abilities to detect and defend against attacks. (10 minutes)

• If the regime in Washington were really serious about preventing terror attacks by Muslims, it would end, and then reverse, all Middle Eastern immigration — and would also stop murdering innocent Muslims overseas in its wars for Israel. (13 minutes)

THE LIBERTY NET continues to be much like a modern-day School of Athens, bringing together branches of philosophy and thought — and news about important events — together in a way that no other meeting of the minds can match.

Listen: Liberty Net 2/25

Here are some of the subjects that participants discussed during this week’s Liberty Net session:

• Why do you suppose that the network television program Law and Order, which prides itself on stories “ripped from the headlines,” routinely takes accounts of horrific crimes committed by Mestizos and Blacks against Whites, and fictionalizes them by reversing the races of the perpetrators and victims? Could it have anything to do with the ethnic makeup of TV network executives? (13 minutes)

• Until parents complained, one public elementary school actually required its students to recite an almost illiterate “poem” praising both Obama and basketball as if they were somehow sacred. (49 minutes)
