Why do you think it's a joke ?
The purpose of the club is stated very clearly on their home page under a heading - 'Purpose'.

Strange ? Not at all. I belong to a group who operate portable rigs using QRP on full moon nights. Especially in Winter. Now that's strange ;-)

I guess I figured that all ham operators use the same rules and frequencies.Color,religion or sexual preferences dont seem to be necessary.The best part of being a Ham operator is the fact that none of that kind of stuff really matters.Ugly ,Fat ,Bald...All 3?Whats the point ?

There are all sorts of commom-interest sub-cultures in amateur radio - hams that are ministers, hams that are doctors, hams that are pilots and so forth. Many of them have their own associations. So there's a group of openly gay hams? So what?

No one is forcing you to read their web page, join their group of even talk to them.

given the number of Ham that enage in gay bashing retoric and threats I would think part of the purpose is obvious (if you doubt that such exist I refer to the archives of RRAP on the usenet currently it is a minor matter) but with varius different gruops within ham radio why not and why should it be considered a joke

I wasnt trying to be wise at all.I thought it was a goofy ploy is all.No harmful intentions,I really love amateur radio and having political issues or seperation of certain groups just sucks in this hobby.

After reading the past 8 or 9 posts, I didn't bother logging on to the web site.

I would have to say that is indeed stranger than RARA Smiley  

It's a specialized group.  That's no different than having a Vet's only group, a youth group, or an EME group.  I wouldn't mind having a group for musicians myself.
