but still, there must be a link where I can view what actually took place and read first hand.
Word on the Net indicates it has much to do with the Local Self proclaimed Amp Expert on here.
Out of respect, I won't mention names or a call, but I am sure everyone with half a brain knows who that is that I refer to.
Your hero and mentor has a long history of shooting himself in the foot with reflectors and magazines, and getting himself banned. This is because he cannot stay focused on technical issues, and always sways into personal attacks, most of which are openly false (lies), or sways into sex or descriptions of sex acts in public forums.
When he first appeared on eHam, he immediately launched into a lie about the person who owned the name "Ameritron", and how that person was caught in a compromising situation with a secretary and had to sell Ameritron in a divorce. I knew that person and his family well, and I worked as a manager at the company that loaned money, tooling, and parts to the original Ameritron. The transfer of names, not that it is anyone's business, was simply because the owner of the tooling, parts, and inventory wanted paid and/or the parts and tooling back, and the other party wanted money to fund Amp Supply. There was no divorce involved. Denny and Connie were wonderful people, seemed to be happy with each other at that time, and do not deserve such treatment in a public forum. The entire story was a lie, and your mentor and friend told his lie on eHam in a technical forum.
My guess is the removal had nothing to do with your mentor's public lie about a divorce and a secretary. Most likely eHam removed that post because it was inappropriate, but in fact the post was also an outright lie.
This is common for your mentor, and for one of his friends. For example, it comes back to me your mentor tells others I drink, and have an alcohol problem. Many people know me, and those who do understand that claim is a lie. I never have had a drinking problem, because I have a very non-addictive personality. Anyone who knows me also knows, that while I was in my late teens and twenties I partied with friends on occasion, I never drank with any sort of problem or binge. My total consumption of alcohol is less than two or three bottles of beer and two or three mixed drinks a year. I rarely even drink.
Your mentor also tells stories about many other people that are untrue. If you want, I can ask a friend whose wife used to work for CQ Magazine to tell you about phone calls to his wife at work from your mentor. Foul talk about people, and inappropriate talk to people including my friend's wife, is nothing new for your friend. It is a history 30 years old or longer.
You mentor and friend felt it appropriate to talk about someone having oral sex with children, and even described who those children were, on eHam, in a technical forum.
As a final example, he even does not draw the line at dead Hams. He, and his friend, even attack dead people with malicious lies about how or why they died.
All of this is factual, and all can be verified. This constant bad behavior, and bizarre practice of talking nasty about people's lives and talking about strange sexual acts in public, is why your mentor has been banned from multiple places. This is why his rebuttal letter to QST never was published years ago, and why CQ has nothing to do with him.
I strongly suggest you look at the history of things your friend, and people around him, say about multiple other people. There is something seriously wrong with people who get on technical forums, or on the radio, and feel it is appropriate to tell open lies about innocent people being caught having sex and being forced to sell a company in a divorce. There is something wrong in the head for anyone who feels it is appropriate to talk about sex acts with children on an amateur radio technical reflector. There is something wrong in the head for your mentor to accuse people publicly of being a drinker, or an alcoholic, when they are not. Worse of all, whatever switch in someone's brain works to respect the dead, it doesn't work for him. He doesn't even draw the line at deceased Hams, and tells public lies about them and their personal lives, and even the cause of their death.
If you want to defend him and associate yourself with him, and the VK4 wants to do the same, that is your choice. Personally, I would not want to be associated with or defend someone who talks graphically about sex acts with children on public forums.
Any more questions?
