LOL. Is there an internet feed or something for that repeater? I'd like to check what it is aboutCompared to what usually goes over the LA 435 repeater, doing so would be boring.
Where else!! That IS their trademark and most people avoid these clowns like a bad case of venereal disease and don't even monitor for vicarious jollies. All radios come with a big knob that changes frequencies and is easily rotated. This thread keeps popping up from time to time and nothing changes. NUT's reputation remains in the porcelin bathroom utencil so let it go at that.Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (BlackBerry; U; BlackBerry 9780; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.8+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/126.96.36.1990 Mobile Safari/534.8+)
On the NUT repeater?
Guess what?? It is a complete turnoff to 99.99% of hams. Why do we keep bring this trash site up and giving them free publicity for their giggles? The big knob on the rig is useful when dealing with the miniscule minority who don't live up to accepted standards. We use it and so can you. There is plenty to have real fun with and do some community good in amateur radio so why the useless cry of outraged concern? Listen to what is really going on the bands and your initial, limited opinion will change from naive disgust to something more realistic and representative of the rest of us in our chosen avocation..I just started learning about ham radio and was interested in getting into the hobby so late in the game. I have enjoyed listening to some of the hams on my SSB portable radio... mostly talking about their gear and antenna placements. But listening to about 2 minutes of that feed really turns me off....
