Liberty Net: March 5, 2016

Liberty-Net---sea-towerby Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

NOW THAT Spring is looming on the horizon, we need to be aware that thunderstorm-related static will soon be a major factor on the 75 meter band — making the signal-to-noise ratio much worse than in wintertime. So this is a good time to improve your antenna system and make it maximally effective, especially since the year’s most pleasant weather for working outdoors will soon be at hand.

THE LIBERTY Net is amateur radio’s longest-running current events discussion net, on the air since 1974. We have a few participants who have been taking part for decades, and every week there are first-timers too. Why not visit us this week and check in?

Here is my take on a few of the subjects discussed and debated on the net this week:

• There’s at least one good thing about the election season — it sets up millions of people for total disillusionment when their “heroes” turn out to be cynical liars or money-puppets or both. And a good dose of disillusionment can lead to healthy radicalization. (48 minutes)

• It’s hard to believe that anyone could work up any enthusiasm whatsoever for dead-fish Israel-lobby-owned phony-religious-nut Ted Cruz. (52 minutes)
