Seems like now a days the MMS net is more like a radio check net.

But they do get the occasional honest to goodness maritime check in.

As others have pointed out.
1.  Nothing to do with no-code or any aspects of license exams.  
2.  What's wrong with society is wrong ham operators and vice versa

14.313 and a few other frequencies are the ham radio equivalent of an internet "porn site".  
Good for the entertainment value, but not suitable for demonstrating amateur radio to potential newcomers. 


Having said that, I may have already said 'too much'

14.313 is a training ground for CB operation.

I listen for educational reasons. I thought the USN taught me all the bad language I'd never need.

However, today on the 'comedy channel', the word was out that K1MAN was back broadcasting on 14.275. Somebody was......

I thought this guy got 'the book' thrown at him?Huh??

Looks like it's a good thing I repaired my TS440SAT's tuning knob  Grin  See "Repaired the excessive backlash on my TS440SAT tuning" in "Mods and Repairs".

Why the constant negative reference to CB?  I have never quite understood that, for many an amateur radio op came out of the ranks of CB.

I travel a lot and use CB myself.  Truckers are nice folks and can be very helpful when it comes to construction, weather and road conditions.  Two meter repeaters are just about empty now, so there isn't much help there.

In fact, I heard two CB'ers arguing on channel 19 not long ago, and a trucker came on frequency and told 'em to knock it off!  He said; "Where do you think you are... ham radio?"

I've used a CB back in the late 70s. Been a ham since the 60s.
There are more 'knuckleheads' on 14.313 then I ever hear on Channel 19, which I use as a propagation aid for 10 Meters.
Yes, the CBers get a bad rap, and I don't understand it, either....
14.275 is 'active' again, and NO, I don't give a crap, except it just shows how the entire justice system has lost all of any teeth it ever had. Seems like you can do whatever you want, to whomever you want, and nothing happens.
Like my ex-neighbors who sued me because I put up an antenna. NO HOA or restrictions of any kind......
Read all about it in the antenna/section......

I see what they are saying. I hear more cursing on the 40 meter band than on CB.

I think it's a real shame that some of us have come to accept music playing, profanity, and malicious interference with the notion "If you don't like it, spin the VFO."

Amateur radio has been--and needs to be--self policing, but when there is a group that does the things being done on 14.313 we ought to insist it be cleaned up.  To be sure, there are a lot of far more important issues in front of the FCC nowadays.  But that doesn't mean we should accept that even one voice channel of our spectrum should be turned into a place where the rules don't apply.

Well said. This frequency should be encouraged for such personalities as it concentrates them on one freq.
