As with a lot of this stuff he has the right to say anything he wants, but we don't have to agree with it.

He is a wild and crazy guy. He even features a picture of KC8KTN before he obtained his general.

I have to admit, this line, from the web page, does strike me as valuable:

"20M National tune up frequency is 14.275 to avoid QRM to legit amateur QSO's"

"Don't be a pinhead." is always good advice. There is indeed a fairly common genetic mutation that results in the afflicted carrier's IQ dropping sharply when a microphone is placed in one hand. Sufficiently studies have not been done yet to support the proposition that the condition does not manifest when the microphone is removed and the hand and forearm are moved rapidly up and down for the distance of a few millimeters in an irregular sequence.

He seems to have a vendetta against anyone that is a slow coder or no coder. Not everyone can be a top ranking ham 20 WPM Extra. His website does have some funny stuff on it like KC8KTN before he upgraded, lol. That part was pretty funny!!!

Personally, i think they guy is an idiot and a disgrace to the ham community.  Not someone I picture a ham as.

This guy actually has a lot of info on his sister page.
Though his sense of humour might be a little twisted.....

I kinda like it. There IS a lot of good stuff on there. I like the stuff about Chuckles and "How to sound like a Lid". (or what he calls "No-Coder 2 Meter Operation tips") which has actually been around for a long time under different names. Some of that stuff you DO hear on repeaters, and it IS retarded. Like: "I'm destinated" or "negatory"
Never laugh, when you can say "hi-hi."
Always say (insert your own call) "FOR I.D".
On repeaters with courtesy tones, you should always say "over."

Ya gotta admit, that stuff is annoying/funny.

And "10 meters. The new age CB"? Well, lets re-evaluate after 5 years. Right now I am not feeling sanguine about good prospects for 10m when we get posts like this about once a week at eham:

"just like everybody else im looking for a good 300 watt amp for 10 meters that's priced right! what should i buy? mostly used for ssb."

AD6KA.
I actually heard a ham using a RCI type export rig on 10 using the roger beep. The ham on the other side of the QSO politely asked the operator to shut off his RB and the other ham said "Its my radio and i'll use it as i like!" I feel 10 meters is going to take a major downward spiral with all these CB ops getting on and using thier junk to make QSOs on 10.

Roger beeps on ham radio?
That's just so disgusting.
Some of those guys think that ham radio
is just CB with more power and privileges.
That and their "It's my radio and I'll
do what I want with it" attitude.
They have no concept of the difference
between "Right" and "Privilege".

I hate to say it, but would that same
asshole now be on 10m with his official
FCC callsign and Roger Beeps if he would
of had to learn at least 5 wpm CW?
I think not. But there are an awful
lot of good no-coders who wouldn't
dream of operating poorly like that.
And new guys can only take the tests that are
offered, so the code/no code thing is a dead horse.
Let's just hope those guys turn out to be
in the minority.

When the Freebanders come up on the
low end of 10m I greet them with 1,000
watts of RTTY CQ...and follow them around
until they get off the band.

In the bicycling community we have Bike Snob NYC (http://bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com/): rude, crude, and many times, right on the money.  Matter of fact, Bike Snob keeps getting more fans, including Lance Armstrong, who called Bike Snob up to get together just so he could meet him!

Thumbs up to DonkBoy for breathing some badly needed fresh air into Ham Radio.
