"Leave the politics at home "
Or what ?
 Are you a MODERATOR ? Seems politics was injected earlier .  Rush is on the radio .  I am no fan of Rush  but if some drive by opportunist  cares to bring up the subject of liars in the political circus ,they should expect a response . 

 The header of the topic is "miscellaneous" after all  . Get over it

I state this position with all the authority and weight of a long time eHam member who doesn't want to see another ham website lost to the political ravings so common these days.

Your too late. It has already happened and will continue to happen and probably will well into the future.

The problem today is too many people take themselves way too seriously. I to this day can't decide if Wayne Green was as serious as he sounded in his writings. Sometimes they bordered on humor and I wonder if that was more the point to what he wrote.

But I also believe that we need more like him. This "I am better then you" attitude is part of the problem. If Wayne could say what he wanted, why can't others? And why can't the others do it in a way that you may learn something and at the same time may get a good laugh.

But alas, its too late. Only thing left are those with their idea or nothing. I enjoy challenging that. Some people don't like that. But I say who cares? If your opinion is the only one to have then we might as well go back to the way the old Soviet Union contacts were like. Call sign, signal report and out of there. Boring and mundane contacts. Is that really what you want from the forums as well?

I sure don't!

  From recollection , much of what Wayne wrote was thinly veiled cynicism .  Wayne often brought topics to light that had little if anything to do with amateur radio , glad he did .

     Of course , the magazine in it's hey-day was first rate , loaded with good articles and information . The covers were spiffy at times as well . Wayne seemed to have an eye for pin-up quality cover photos at times . There were always the prudes who whined about the pics along with the commentary . Wayne's attitude was appropriate . Don't like the cover , don't buy the magazine , don't like what I say , don't read it .

  I liked Wayne and his magazine .

Hello.

First off, yes, you can take a CB antenna and make a poor 160 meter antenna.
So, why try? why not?
Wayne Green would fit in perfect in with most hams.
Who knows? there is Karol Madera, Wayne Green was a model ham compared to him.
I have met hundreds of hams in my life, and most I try to stay away from!
They can be fun to talk to, but it is like a visit to the zoo vs your dog or cat, sure, they are interesting, but would you take any home with you?
Cats make excellent indoor pets!
Hams, not so good!

I found 73 to be an excellent magazine in the mid to late 1960s. The problem was that once Wayne got a bee in his bonnet about something, the whole magazine lurched that way - FM and repeaters was an example. That's when I stopped subscribing.

Hello.

That is why he should have had a column, like a newspaper.
(I) for one, will tell you, that more wars have been fought over religion and politics than anything.
I may not like Obama, but he is our President.
I may not like what you say, but, within reason, it is your right to say what you want.
Karol Madera is out in left field, but he has an awful lot of support where it counts, Canada.
Did you know that Karol Madera had a legal defense fund set up for him?
You can now legally go to Cuba, in part over all of the noise I made.
I do not smoke, anything, but think the drug laws in this country do not work.
Gays in the military? and? the point being?
This is the USA, and a lot of things are going to change.
If free enterprise works so well , why does China all but own the USA?
And, why is it that lawmakers are all but banning the import of Chinese cars?
Don't look now, but they are building them in the USA!

And, how about an all new design?

Anyhow, the only thing constant is change!

Wayne Green and 73 magazine was part of my long ham career.  Initially, Wayne turned me off because he advocated such things as a transceiver! 

This was during the time that a real ham shack consisted of a 70lb receiver and a 70lb transmitter, along with outboard items like an antenna changeover relay and a load of other things that are now included in the typical ham transceiver.

Wayne was at one time a visionary.  He rubbed people the wrong way because of this. 

PIU:  He did have a column, in 73 magazine and this is where he presented his vision of ham radio and also his vents.

Unfortunately, as Wayne got older he fell into the "aluminum foil hat" category and that's when he started to lose credibility.  The articles he published in his later years were disjointed and quite often, irrational.  It was very sad seeing this.

As for his magazine, 73, it was a classic.  I really liked that magazine.

As for these political rants here on eHam; I have to agree that it's really not the place for it but sometimes one can't help but to jab at the present administration.

If one must "jab," fine, but let's not let it turn into a war of words.

Hello.

He went off on the JFK shooting, and brought up some valid points.

Oswald leaves the Marines with a not so great record, and goes to the USSR.
Now, after being in the USSR, he simply leaves?!
Than, he gets a job with the state  government of Texas?! Texas is the most oppressing state when it comes to "Commies".
And, he brings a rifle into the state building.
He gets arrested, but before he can say anything, under armed escort, he gets killed by Jack Ruby.
All the facts.
The rest, the holistic wonder cure for all that ails you?
Toward the end, the guy was getting into drugs.
