    Here is youtube link for "captain dave's phone patch 9-1-17.

    In wake of hurricane Harvey an air traffic controller at Houston airport tells his story of surviving the ordeal. Great timeline ! Part two is phone patch with woman who has a music/art display at the Black Rock Desert Burning Man in Nevada.
    Thanks to Greg WA2SFT on air and Steve KC6KNL for recording and putting it up on youtube with video.

    Florida Attorney General says she's received 7,000+ complaints (100 per hour!) for price gouging! See https://finance.yahoo.com/news/almost-7-000-complaints-price-210328832.html Probably because they only fine $1000 for it and the people doing this are making such a large profit they'll gladly pay the fine to make the big profits they're making. They need to increase the fine!

    If people would make the effort to be prepared, who would the gougers sell to?

    For a storm, you have two ways to be prepared: Either stock up and make preparations ahead of time or be prepared to spend more for the things you need when you need it.

    The burning man stuff was really interesting.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Can you take the lead on this, right after hurricane season is over?

    I'd love to chat with you about this at length, but I'm taking a short break between making runs to the gas station to fill all the neighborhood portable generators.

    Can you summarize that for those of us who don't have 2 hours 42 minutes to watch it?

    That "Captain Dave" dude is a loser. Whenever I've heard him he's been drunk, cursing and broadcasting for hours on end.

    Those who think ki4thy's call in phone patch operation is an abuse need to check out FCC
    's finding's in past case. http://www.smeter.net/fcc/fcc-finding.php
    Love to see a lively debate on the issue.
    73's to all, "captain dave"
