Liberty Net: June 4, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET RECEIVED a double whammy of very long propagation and high lightning static this week, but that didn’t dampen the intensity of the conversation and debate — though it did point up the desirability of full legal power and high, efficient antenna systems.

Listen: Liberty Net 6/4

Here’s just a tiny sample of the ideas debated this week on amateur radio’s historic and longest-running — since 1974 — discussion net:

• Water parks, restaurants, beaches, and entire sections of cities have had to be shut down so far this Spring because of destructive — and even murderous — Black “flash mobs,” allegedly facilitated by social networking sites. One wonders to what extent the Internet aspect of the problem is exaggerated in order to justify surveillance and censorship of all of us, when the problem is really biological in nature. White flash mobs are totally different, for example, involving such things as calm, tender dancing at the Jefferson Memorial and singing songs from the Sound of Music at railway stations.

THE NOISE was down and signals were up this week on the Liberty Net, and check-ins continue to grow as the word spreads about the most exciting net on the ham bands.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/28

Here is a sample of some of the ideas debated and discussed this time on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion net:

• Why not rebuild flood-ravaged Joplin, MO with veteran labor? If the regime’s troops were withdrawn from the multiple illegal wars in the Middle East, there would be plenty of such labor available. (1 hour 4 minutes)

• One Congressman has gone on record advising Americans to move out of major metropolitan areas because of the possibility of “civil unrest” in the near future. (1 hour 8 minutes)

Liberty Net: May 21, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

ROLLING THUNDERSTORM static that never seemed to stop inhibited early check-ins on this week’s Liberty Net, but the noise eventually subsided — and the conversation and exchange of information accelerated — as the evening progressed. When high noise conditions prevail, the extra few dB from an amplifier and a high, efficient antenna really make a difference.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/21

Here are just a few of the topics discussed and debated this time on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• Obama has brazenly ignored the War Powers Act — the very law he invoked to legitimize his invasion of Libya. And now that the 60-day deadline for getting Congressional approval has passed, that invasion is illegal by any standards. (13 minutes)

• Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s rape and sodomy charges may be the least of his worries: Apparently the Black African woman he allegedly raped lives in an apartment set aside exclusively for tenants who are infected with HIV. (21 minutes)

Liberty Net: September 18, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE TOTALLY BOGUS nature of the Republican establishment was a major focus of the Liberty Net this last week of Summer, and propagation coöperated to make the dialogue audible across most of the continent.

Expect even better conditions as the Fall season approaches and static dies down.

Listen/dl Sep. 18 Liberty Net

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

• The criminals in Congress are seriously discussing seizing private pension plans and forcibly merging them into the bankrupt “Social Security” system. (20 minutes)

• Did you know that a “dirty capitalist” American business owner made two recent broadcasts over Radio Havana in Cuba? And did you know that he was a regular Liberty Net participant? (37 minutes)
