I have noticed lately that 160 meters is starting to sound like 75 meters with the foul language, power idiots, and "bathroom humor" I always thought 160 was the "gentlemans band." Guess Im wrong.

Stand up for what you believe, Eric.

If you don't like what's going on, tell them.

Telling us won't help, unless you happen to have your post read by one of the perpetrators during the midst of a soul-searching session.  Probably not gonna happen.

Do you know your section OO?
Have a recorder?
Contacted the FCC?
We are a self rule enforcing service, have you said anything to the offenders?

In my case, yes to all of the above.

K9FON,

Please use a recording device and send in to the FCC.

laura.smith@fcc.gov  is the address you send a recording to.  I will advise you that  foul language is permissible.  I sent in a recording of kz8o saying F'you to me 3 times and she said this was o.k.  I do have the e-mail in hand to prove this.  There must be an obscene nature for any violation.  Good Luck.

Thirty one years on the bands and I still find that the majority of ops are really decent folks. Whether old timers or new. Occasionally one encounters jerks. My recent on-air experience tells me that has not changed, and there is therefore no cure for jerks.

If you like phone, and hate jerks, tune past them, and join some of us narrow minded, CB hostile, 20 year + CW loving guys who also like to use SSB.  You will find new hams there too.

There really is nothing wrong with someone working phone. It' just not for me. I don't like hearing so many bad players.

If you want to hear the bad players on CW go to a big DX pileup and you can hear the 'policemen' sending UP UP UP endlessly and cussing at those who (like me more than once) forget to punch the right button on the rig and end up calling on the DX stations frequency.

Come on!  Get real.

What's your definition of an Old Timer?  Anyone who's had a ticket longer than six months?
