Hi All,

In reading this thread I decided to look up the operator in question and all I can say is "Yikes" check him out on the "zed" he has a rant that goes on and on, unbalanced is being very nice, I think he would best be served moving to 14.275 or 14.313, I am sure he would find a welcome home there.....

There he would be second fiddle.

I don't think that's in the cards for Great Nino.

ETA:

Anyone have Cliff Notes for that rant? I'm not spending half an hour trying to decipher it.

Back in 2000 when I was operating from
Madagascar as 5R8GQ I found that of ALL the
offensive, rude, VULGAR, QRM'ing, calling out of turn,
"you MUST pick me up, I'm late for work" hams
..........%99 were Italian hams.

Maybe I had bad luck. Maybe the obnoxious
ones happened to be really loud those days.
I did work some very courteous Italian hams.
I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
But this behavior was my true life experience
with SOME italian hams.


And  you betcha' it WAS sweet as hell
to write "Sri, Not In Log" on the received QSL's
of the worst offenders, who I kept note of.

I found the pattern.

He was a blissful ham, working as a sonar operator for thirty years until for some reason he took exception to the DX Window existing as a gentlemans' agreement.  He then occupied that frequency for five years.  

-Then he quit it for three years. But no matter where he operated "they" interfered him
-So he resumed occupying the window.  Ever since:
-People jam him
-A Belgian ham wrote a ham operating manual deriding him
-Amateur radio societies endorse this book for ham behavior, encouraging people against him
-Amateur radio societies allow hams to write articles deriding him
-People make threats to him by radio, mail, telephone
-People threaten to kill him
-Someone from Northern Italy (Undertone on historical N. Italy vs. Sicily antagonism) played a cruel hoax on his daughter that he was dead

Pattern?  Yeah.  Take a step back from the issue of the DX Window and it becomes clear.
