Systematically systemic, eh?
An approach we quickly learned, that WORKED WELL on 11M back in it's heyday, was to have a list of all your buddies' phone numbers. When the jackholes showed up and started to interfere, we would mute the CB, call the friend, and use the phone, while transmitting and feigning to receive. The mutant op could have 10KW, be in our driveway, and STILL couldn't get between us! We caught a couple of them using this method too. We also used to triangulate jackh0les, giving each other our azimuths over the phone.
Well, when you can't use your thousands of dollars worth of equipment to TALK on, you have to think outside of the box sometimes.
"If it won't fly, McGuyver the sucker for the interstate. We WILL get home."
The problem might be that we can't hear you over the jamming
No worries Mon.
We'll be spotted on the cluster on too many bands for them to interfere with all the operators.
With all of the social media available to us today is only a matter of time before one little comment "goes viral" and makes it around the world. Which other social media outlets do you think we all have access to? If everyone looking at this post just shares it one time on social media it might just make it to the mainstream news.
Of course there has been jamming in the past.
Here's the deal: We are licensed hams. The license that gives us access to the spectrum we're privileged to operate in includes responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is to report ANYTHING that's getting into our bands. That's our responsibility. We don't get to decide that since someone else may or may not do their job that our responsibility is null.
TL;DR: If we don't do our jobs, we don't get to complain about anyone else.
Oh well. At least there will be one report in the blasted database. I'm going back for some solder therapy. This place reminds me why I left facebook 10 years ago.
To set the record straight (from six days ago):
“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime. The Cuban people are bravely asserting fundamental and universal rights. Those rights, including the right of peaceful protest and the right to freely determine their own future, must be respected. The United States calls on the Cuban regime to hear their people and serve their needs at this vital moment rather than enriching themselves.”
--The current administration
EARTH: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT
Please remember this is not a political forum. Yes, this situation obviously has political overtones. QRZ has been watching the thread progress and allowed some commentary slip by that is clearly partisan, and US/politically oriented.
There are thousands of web sites on the internet to discuss the US and Cuban political actions, reactions, and ramifications. QRZ isn't the forum to discuss it however.
So please no further discussion of American policies, quotes from US political leaders, etc. unless they are specifically addressing amateur radio (or the jamming of amateur radio, as the case may be)
No further direct partisan political comments (or quotes of previously made political comments) will be allowed.
It's not censorship - it's site rules.
I'm mostly a CW op and don't operate phone too much but just had voice QSO's with LZ2VU and LZ4EB right through the jamming. Yes, they can hear the jamming too - but they're making Q's right through it anyway. At 03:30 July 29 UTC they are still on 7170 LSB
Best way to flip the jammers off might be to just keep using the band.
