26.7% of all quoted statistics are incorrect.

BTW:  I wouldn't get too agitated over a thread with a title like " HAS CB LIDS DESTROYED THE HAM BANDS? ".    That was your first clue someone's playing one deuce short of a straight.............  Tongue

And they also say that 5 out of 4 people don't understand fractions!

I know it takes a real wanker to mention this, but the spelling is " HURRICANE ".

Re: KG4YBH

Keep your well deserved pride, stay out of that dark room and just laugh at the 99% of hams that think the Main Steam and Water Cycle is a 10 speed bike in a hot tub and a Reefer Flat is a crack house. Congrats on your General. JKA USNR/USMS Ret.

Now that's just funny Cheesy  They probably think the boiler room is the bar downtown.

Innocent question from a well-meaning middle-aged ham. Can you translate? Interpretation is the first step to understanding.....

Thanks!!!!

Steam and water cycle has to do with steam plant and boiler operations. The reefer flat is where the refrigeration units are on a boat and the boiler room is the area in the engine room where the boilers are located that produce main propulsion and auxiliary steam.

The next time I hear someone give their "handle" instead of saying "the name here is", I'm going to puke...

"CB lids"Huh?   In my 43 years as a licensed  amateur, there have ALWAYS been idiots/lids on the ham bands. So what else is new?

I suspect the simple fact is that there are many, many more of us on the ham bands now
than there were 30 years ago.  Since the available frequencies have not changed much in
size, that means more hams per Hz.  In turn, that means more lids per Hz, regardless of
their point of origin.  We can choose to put on our tin foil hats and believe that we have
been infected by the Lids From Twenty-Seven Megahertz, the ObamaCare Radicals, or
the Grays from Zeta Reticuli, but without evidence we have nothing more than something to
bitch about.  It could be nothing more insidious than the anonymity that radio affords
giving license (no pun intended) to those sad individuals with miserable, meaningless lives
to annoy the rest of us.

As for me, I choose to just ignore the Lids and do my best to serve as an example of
how to behave when the key is down.  And when they get really annoying, well, that's
the second function of the POWER switch on the rig.

I'm having lots of fun working DX--in 2013 I worked 225 countries on CW.  In the process, I pushed my CW DXCC total to 281/273!

My goal for 2014 is to get another CW DXCC endorsement sticker.

There are lots of neat stations I can work with 100 watts and CW, last evening I got a V5 on 30M and this morning I hooked up with W1AW/7 (Utah) on 160M!
