Liberty Net: July 10, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is the most exciting — and one of the most venerable — nets on the amateur radio bands today.

Emceed by published author Vic Misek, W1WCR, it’s on the air every Saturday night at 10PM Eastern Time on or around 3950 kHz SSB — usually within 10 kHz.

Propagation was generally good this week, and jamming was absent (though Summer static was a bit of a problem), making for excellent dialogue and information sharing.

Here are a few of the subjects discussed on this week’s net:

• What should the American attitude be to Muslims? Should we be friendly to those who mind their own business and stay in their home nations, while firmly resisting any Muslim migration to the US? Or should we do as we are now doing, and happily welcome Muslim invaders to our shores — while making unremitting war on the innocent Muslims who stay at home in their own countries? (18 minutes)

Liberty Net: July 3, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

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 for Week of March 13-20

An early American allegorical engraving, showing Justice personified as a goddess recording the voice of the people guided by light, liberty, and truth. It is a particularly apt symbol for the Liberty Net.

JUST BEFORE this week’s Liberty Net, a very unusual wind storm in New Jersey — characterized by brief but extremely powerful “micro-gusts” of wind — caused extensive damage and protracted power loss; but N2IRJ’s generator saved the day, and the Net was able to be recorded as usual.

Here are a few of the highlights:

• The post-storm power situation in Jackson, New Jersey was so bad that the police resorted to robo-calls to, apparently, all citizens, to let them know about the situation. (6 minutes)

• The American Family Association (AFA) has made the bizarre demand that the orca that killed a trainer at Sea World should be “stoned to death” in accordance with “scripture.” (27 minutes)

• An activist going by the name of “Splitting the Sky” attempted to make a citizen’s arrest of George W. Bush for war crimes when the latter crossed into Canada. (29 minutes)

Liberty Net for Week of February 27 – March 6

The upside down flag is an internationally recognized symbol of distress. It is an appropriate symbol for the crisis now engulfing American society. Intelligent amateur radio operators discuss that crisis every Saturday night on the Liberty Net -- within 10 kHz or so of 3950 SSB, starting at 10PM Eastern Time.

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

TERRIFIC STORMS knocked out Net Control Station W1WCR’s main antenna system and propagation was poor, but the Liberty Net — amateur radio’s historic free speech net of four decades’ standing — continued as usual with more mind-expanding information than can ever be found on the commercial broadcasting bands. In fact, the Liberty Net alone is enough to justify the effort and expense of purchasing a shortwave radio and setting up an antenna system. And when the criminals in Congress are eventually ordered to shut down or censor the Internet, shortwave radio may well be the only way to freely communicate over wide areas.

Thanks to Marty, N2IRJ, you’re able to listen to the Liberty Net right now on your computer — or download the file and listen on your portable mp3 player. And N2SAG operates a live feed and chat during Net times that lets you make an end run around jammers and a fickle ionosphere.

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.

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)
