Speaking of K1MAN, though, I'm listening to 14.275 as I type, and apparently someone is re-transmitting one of Baxter's "broadcasts" (read: intentional QRM/jamming/obnoxiousness). <sigh> Won't we *ever* be rid of that clown?
And oh yes, the notorious 14.313... those were the days. The antics on that frequency could be best described as the worst amateur radio had to offer. However, it was, by far, the most highly entertaining frequency -- ever. It was a riot! LOL I remember Polly Parrot well. And yes, Herbie Baby was, and still is, no. 1, IMHO. KV4FZ is a ham's ham. We miss hearing your melodious voice, Herb. (He's still active on CW. I hear him a lot on top band.)
I remember those guys...LOL. Those were the Bad Old Days. You could listen to the antics on 20 meters during the day, those guys screaming about INTERCON and Doc and his "Cloud Warmer", and then you could listen to the war on 75 meters during the evening...
Remember the Rich WB2OTK faction vs. the Big AL K4OKA gang (Get on the big rig boy!) playing the pork butt song, and the 3905 vs. 3898 vs. 3895 war? The opening bid on 75 was 2KW just to key the mic, and you better run at least 5KW to be heard.
Then Riley showed up and squashed the mess on both 20 and 75, but it was funny to listen while it lasted.
But back to K1MAN, I heard a recording of him on 14.275 this afternoon. I don't know what all that is about. Probably the same group that is fighting with the guy Riley called the Canadian Fruitcake. Hopefully, the FCC
will resolve this issue.
