Liberty Net: October 29, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THIS WEEK’S AUTUMN SNOWSTORM killed electrical power and damaged trees in Hudson, New Hampshire, temporarily putting W1WCR, the Liberty Net’s Net Control Station, off the air. But Marty, N2IRJ, stepped into the breach and kept the conversation flowing. This week also marked the reappearance of long-time net participants N2SAG, WB8RAV, and N8WGM via N2IRJ’s new phone patch system.

Listen: Liberty Net 10/29

Here are some of the ideas discussed and debated this week on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion (as opposed to traffic, or mere rag-chewing) net, on the air since 1974:

• How does the addition of 50,000 “contractors” — a better word would be mercenaries, if not hit men — constitute a “withdrawal” from Iraq? (43 minutes)

• It is reported that J.P. Morgan alone holds $90 trillion in derivatives. Not only is this highly speculative form of “wealth created out of nothing” a time bomb waiting to go off, but it makes one wonder just why the banks didn’t bail out themselves — instead of ripping off the taxpayers.

A LOT OF WORK is going on behind the scenes to let some of the Liberty Net participants who are temporarily off the air take part via phone patch on N2IRJ. The same patch would also allow non-amateur guests to take part in the discussions. Look for results this week or next!

Here are some of the ideas brought to light this time on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• The price tag for allowing the alleged “Nobel Peace Prize” president to murder Qaddafi was at least $1.3 billion. (14 minutes)

• Now that they hope the American fools have forgotten the 2011 deadline for withdrawal from Iraq, the regime is declaring that our troops “need to stay” — indefinitely. (16 minutes)

THERE ARE MANY NEW stations checking into the Liberty Net these days, so the word is definitely getting out. Temporarily, though, one of the net’s biggest signals and most knowledgeable participants, Al, N2SAG, is off the air. We all wish him well as he transitions to a new station setup, and look forward to his speedy return to the net.

Here are some of the concepts discussed and debated this week on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion (as opposed to traffic, or mere rag-chewing) net, on the air since 1974:

• The Washington regime is now sending combat troops into the Hell that is Uganda — supposedly to kill the warlords behind the so-called “Lord’s Resistance Army.” Knowing the history and demographics of the region, the opposition is likely little better, if at all. (19 minutes)
