Yeah..it's a shame. Right about when I poked you in that direction so we could meet up, it started to go down the tubes there. It was a good year+ before that where we had a great time and some decent conversations, but it went down the hole fast.

It was principally one guy that dragged the crew down the drain and attracted the dregs of the band there. He warped a lot of weak people and ruined the group.

You're out of 2m simplex range but we have a group that has a good time there and also works just up the band at 3.828-3.832 roughly at random times. You've probably worked a lot of them already. Just had a big meet and greet at a diner with a good ten of us or so. That's what radio is all about to me.

We should grab coffee one of these days now that the "shooah" has been returned to the rightful owners, I can actually drive down your way heh.

Amen to that brother, I was driving the Parkway yesterday and actually made good time, haven't been able to do that since Memorial Day weekend hit.....

As soon as I loose the foliage here, I'll work on getting a proper length on this wire, a couple more ground wires down, and shoot for a higher tree, then I should be able to get a decent signal out on 80 again, and I'll come looking for you.....

Perhaps KB2IXT is discovering first hand the old saying, "What goes around comes around". It has been my observation that the founder of the Marconi Net welcomes all opinions on all subjects, so long as he agrees with what you say and how you say it.

Another satisfied customer.

Funny thing is the guy who does the most jamming to the Marconi Net is the same guy who paid Fred to clean up his yard when Fred was out of a job.

I have to wonder what 411 he has on Fred to make Fred put up with jamming every night and not expose the guy. He tips a few and fires up on Fred with vulgar stuff all the time. Anyone in the greater NYC area can listen to this jammer on the local mega-repeater. He pauses on the repeater while the vulgar guy talks on 75.

Stay tuned.............

It seems Fred is the topic of controversy in more then one circle of people on 75. He gets a thumbs down from those of us that use the AM window too. Don't get me wrong, I fully understand there is no legal claim to this 20 Khz slice of spectrum for AM only use. What Fred continues to be oblivious or disrespectful to is the fact this tiny bandwidth gives those who work AM barely enough bandwidth to carry out two separate QSO's. Why he jammed his net in the lower section of this spectrum is beyond me.

When he keys on 3.872 it renders 3.875 completely useless in AM receive. It use to be nice to break away from the roundtable on 3.885 to carry out a quick exchange with a smaller group on 3.875. For the last decade Fred has decided it was more important to be on 3.872 every night. Often enduring a ridiculous amount of jamming rather then simply move down band a few KHz like 99% of all other SSB traffic has done out of respect long before his arrival. When was the last time you heard AM traffic below 3.870?

1. Easliy led
2. May have the best of intentions however uninformed
3. Weak minded
4. Rarer every day.

When you find out the WHOLE truth you will be even more disgusted AND will know that you have been had.
I would agree, but what has happened to Freddy, the Fartloop? I am told he has gone to the Carribean? Long time away.

I have no idea what happened to Fred.

He did do one good thing. Every night you can now hear a lot of great AM guys and gals on that spot. Guess they figured out use it or lose it.
