If you really want to be in for a shock, just do as search for the "renegade repeater" on It's actually being streamed live over the internet!"Thankfully for the sensible and moderates there is contesting" The behavior of some contesters is often the worst of what I hear on HF. I was first ashamed and then angry that ham radio has come to this. I had noticed some of this activity on 75/80 meters. Some will say, spin the dial or turn off the radio. Maybe I'm being too pessimistic but I'm afraid as the years go on this type of behavior will become more and more common. The reason for this post is to ask those that may use profanity on the air and discuss vulgar subjects to not do so. Thankfully for the sensible and moderates there is contesting, dxing and number collecting so we do not have to listen to or deal with the alt right dribble that is polluting the world and ultimately some parts of our radio spectrum.
However, it’s also worth noting that Finman is not yet a millionaire, as his profits in Bitcoin have not yet been realized.
Dropping out of high school at the age of 15 to focus on his educational website, Erik Finman made a bet with his parents in which he agreed to go to college if he wasn’t a millionaire by the age of 18.
Thanks to the continuous Bitcoin rally, Finman was able to hire professional programmers to work on his website, later selling it for Bitcoin again, starting his own VR company, all while trading Bitcoin and increasing his holdings.
Please be respectful of the audience and the great (clean) hobby. Anyone who earned their ham radio license should have enough pride in themselves to not stoop to this level. I agree, some of the language and subject matter has gotten way out of hand.
I recently heard a conversation where an older ham was "elmering" a young ham on how to get college girls into bed, and using terms that were beyond explicit!
