AE4FB is the leader of the pack and funny as all get out they argue like crazy I listen in often and laugh but there out there late at night.
There's two sides to the issue, some ham's tend to take traditional on air protocols a little too far in their efforts to "police" the bands, these are usually the same guys on QRZ that blame everything wrong with amateur radio on the no-code license and all those who got in (or upgraded) after the code requirement was dropped.
I look at it this way, there's a ton of mindless crap coming through our TV screens every day, if I don't want to watch it, I turn the dial. The same applies to amateur radio, if the discussion is not to your personal tastes....turn the dial.....there's plenty of spectrum out there for everybody.....
I wish they would clean up their act.
Kudos! I completely agree!
I made a quick check on 80m early in the evening and it was still very noisey here on the east coast, I shut down early and joined my wife in the house to watch the Phillies play the Nationals, then that game got hit with a nasty thunder storm and down pour in the 6th inning, so I hit the sheets early......
80m usually has a high noise level here until late at night, a lot of plasma screen TV's in the neighborhood I guess, last night I was getting a solid 6 on the "S" meter, on a good night it's only about a 3......
