Just been thinking...
...about all the issues and discussions I've encountered on the "bands" over the years. It all boils down to silly arguments over who has the best toys. Really, I mean, really. Toys, wired into the Children's Band radios, beefed by "bricks," run by a bunch of lound-mouthed Pirates, who don't know the real issue of talk back, also are from the same culture that has taught them to not listen. They wouldn't know the difference in a PTT from an RTL. The difference of two way and full duplex communication. Same "children" graduate to Hamdom, to cause some of the same problems as they did on eleven meters. The Immature radio society is to whom they belong. Then here, they find their way to RR, and do the same thing.
You guys have gotta be smart! How? They haven't learned how to do it themselves! Some of these guy buy their way through life, paying someone else to peak and toon, and beef up what they think they need, to feel power, and control. We have power, too. We know how to attenuate their signal, raise the squelch floor, swing the antenna out of phase, and change channels, bands, modes, and turn down the volume. They can't make us listen, especially if they don't have our attention.
Time to ignore the Radio Pirates on the Children's Band, and to ex-communicate the Immature Radio Opera-ators! Let them listen to us, for a change. They will have to strain to hear, search for signals. Make them work for their booty! Be smart operators, and do not let them succeed!
I am Road Ranger, hear me roar. ARRR!

Two antennas met on a rooftop--, The wedding was O.K., but the reception was great!
