Feeling nostalgic today. Has anybody been reading Wayne Green W2NSD lately?

You may need to be an OT to know who WG is. If you don't know, just Google his name/call.

Do you think Wayne is certifiable, or has he some good points?

Wayne has always seen a different color sky than the rest of us.  it was interesting in the 60s/70s as he spend most of his editorial ink on hamming.  MyCast does note there is a full moon now.

And that, in itself, isn't bad.

I've invited Wayne to this forum. Maybe he'll throw a few comments in...

If Mr.Green wants to contribute to amateur radio issues FB,but if it is just repetitious knowledge of the woes of present/past government which the majority of citizens already know about and everyday fodder via all types of media but until now have done nothing about I see no point in filling eHam forums with this type of common knowledge or as you put it (points).

I remember Wayne Green from the 1970's when I first got my ticket, I'm surprised that he's still alive. Look around the Internet and you can find a download of all issues of 73 Magazine, it's worth a look just to show how kooky he was.

73 was a good technical magazine in the 1960s if you ignored Wayne's rants. Then it went all repeater oriented and that was when I gave up on it.

I will never forget the time I was perusing the mags in a shop and saw on the cover of a 73 magazine the article title, "CB Vertical on 160 meters". 

Ahem.

Why would that title cause you concern? I presume the article described how to modify a 27MHz vertical for operation on 160 meters, probably via adding a loading coil?

Wayne's writings often begin in a logical manner, such as organically grown vegetables if eaten raw are healthy. The problem is he then goes on to extreme ridiculous conclusions, such as this same healthy food will cure all forms of cancer, even those almost on their cancer death beds. I've often wondered if his intention was to see how strong of a reaction readers would have to his outlandish conclusions.

So the problem is if you are reading a topic which you don't know much about, like a new technical invention, you can't trust his writing since you know from experience that he strays too far from reality.

One ham who has known Wayne for years and who wrote articles for 73, has cautioned people not to confuse Wayne's efforts to sell magazines with his real personal beliefs!  Smiley

Regardless of the hoopla, I owe Wayne a debt for one editorial he wrote encouraging us to open our minds, embrace those newfangled computers and not be afraid of new modes entering the hobby.  He was right!

Not much experience on Top Band, huh?

That's the point: CB antenna on 160 meters is "practically impossible". It would make you want to read the article. It might sell the magazine. That was Wayne.

Um, that CB antenna loading coil for 160, did it involve the use of Colloidal Silver?

Me too. I would have guessed that Never-Say-Die died 10 years ago or more. How old is he?

Mr Cold Fusion, right?
