Was just totally shocked to hear the way some hams are behaving daily on the Los Angeles 147.435 repeater!  The language and content being used are beyond description.  What's even worse, the repeater is streamed LIVE over the internet!  You can form your own opinions by going to the W6DEK.com website. It's just amazing that the FCC allows this type of behavior to actually go on.

So why don't you report it?  Or are you as reluctant to give your identity to the Official Observers or the FCC as you are here?

435 has always been like that. It's gone through several owners since Roy Tucker ran it, and although it's been 'cleaned up' a few times, it always goes back to being the Bad Boy Cesspool of repeaters.

Just turn the dial, and don't feed the trolls......

  I intend to!  I was just searching the internet for some ham websites, when I came across W6DEK.com and noticed that they streamed their repeater live over the internet.  I just was not prepared for what I heard.  It is even far worse than CB was back in the '70s!

Why the shock?  I'm sure its not a bit different than what you will hear walking down the street in ANY moderate size american city these days.  The great majority of american people have become morally and psychologically bankrupt and it can't help but show wherever social interaction occurs.  Its got absolutely nothing to do with ham radio and everything to do with american society.  THAT'S what sorely needs to be fixed.

  Good point.  That repeater is just an indication of how things have actually become.  I just presumed that hams were a cut above the rest.

In that respect, to a large extent, they are.  But, in terms of percentage, the problem is still bad.  Wish I knew what could be done to fix it.  I'd even be willing to put up with that drifty old tube gear again if people's attitudes could go back to the way they used to be back then!

Because some people still strive for common decency in the world.  Garbage offends whether encountered for a few hours or a few seconds, its still garbage.

Yes, Times change--BUT THE REGULATIONS HAVEN'T, AND THEY PROBABLY NEVER WILL in regard to that issue.

REBEL RADIO, huh?  Sounds to me as though you're playing this thread for its shock value and nothing more.  I'm wasting my time here.  Time to be movin' on.  Happy trollin'.

Tom,

You should have seen what IBC posted before the editors took it down.  This thread was actually several pages, but IBC decided he'd lace it with the worst language you can imagine and then wrote that they were "just words...no big deal".  Yes he is definitely a low-class troll.

Four years ago there is a repeater in Florida where the talk was about killing a newly elected politician. I don't particularly like the guy myself but that was totally inappropriate. Some days later I called the local FBI office and they told me to call the FCC. When I called them they told me to call the FBI. Kind of like FEMA today.
