Nothing has changed since the 70's.  Why the question?  Wink

The players have changed but the game remains the same.

With the exception of the jammers or unIDed stations (music players, et al) everyone I hear on the frequency uses a call sign and operates his or her station within the rules. If someone doesn't care for the fact that profanity is categorized as protected speech by the FCC, two options exist:

1) Petition the FCC to modify the rules regarding allowable transmission content;
2) Spin the VFO knob.

Indeed.  Same type of folks probably b**ch and whine about something they saw on TV that offends their delicate sensibilities even though there's 10 zillion other things on to watch... same thing applies there: change the channel if you don't like the programming. 

My personal favorite is listening to the MM Net people complain when someone starts calling CQ on 14.295.  Good for hours of entertainment rather than 14.313.

Ah, yes...the net with an outdated mission, an outdated purpose. The net which features Captain Dunsail as NCS and which routinely checks in anything BUT water-borne vessels.

Yeah, that one.

Staying on CW gets you away from a lot (but not all) of  the idiots.

Amateur Radio is made up of people.  Most people are ok but there are a few bad apples.  Amateur Radio is not immune to those folks.  Even in "smart" crowds, there's a portion of idiots and jerks.  Now, the typical crowd will usually chime in and say that this behavior is the result of "dropping the code requirement" and other such nonsense.  Utter BS.  It's human nature, plain and simple.  I heard bad crap on the air 30 years ago, and I hear it now.

I use 14.313 to tell if 20m is open to the East Coast. If I listen in and can hear the lids, I know the band's open. Not a peep, well then it's not. The maritime net seems to always be going too, so I just know to keep a wide berth around 14.300.
