Opinion: All commentary in this post and video are my opinion of what occurred on 14.247 mhz on December 31, 2020.
On December 31, 2020 I was working a pileup on 14.247 for a little over an hour when stations barreled in intentionally QRM’ing me. They claimed a net was about to begin and I should know better. Also, spreading false information that I’m jamming their net every day — completely untrue. Putting aside how ridiculous that is, I feel it’s important that new ham radio operators know people like Jimmie and Jo-Jo are not the norm in the hobby — they’re the exception.
They display poor operating procedures and are generally rude to others on the air. That is certainly not in the spirit of ham radio. They meander the airwaves thinking they own them and everyone should clear out of their way.
It’s on all of us to be courteous to one another and operate in the good spirit of ham radio.
P.S. – No one (and not a net) owns a frequency. That’s why nets often have alternate frequencies.
Here is a video that actually captured the entire exchange with KU2G and KN3X who proceeded to walk over the top of my QSO and talk to each other 10 miles apart on ground wave. I also provide some tips for new hams on how to operate properly and avoid confrontations with guys like them.
