    It seems that some folks (not naming names) have forgotten the ham "spirit" of respect and cooperation. TG 3100 is considered a national calling channel. Apparently - some folks of late have been using it as a rag-chew. When confronted about it, they have "complained" about others not appreciating their "politics", among other claims. All they really are accomplishing is to point out their own overweening sense of entitlement.

    Although not banned, politics on the radio is very bad form, unless it is a channel specifically created for that purpose. Doing it on a national calling channel is the PINNACLE of boorish stupidity.

    I've heard Rag-Chewing on 3100 since I tried DMR out in 2016. Our local/regional folks talk politics on HF/VHF/DMR etc. Brandmeister however says right in the 3100 connector description" No Politics. "

    They posted that after the fact that they blocked users from Tac channels and others with no notifications. That was their way to inform users they did not want open discussions on 3100. Instead of blocking they could have emailed these individuals or informed everyone of their policies.

    No one ever received any notifications as to the rules but instead were banned from TAC and other TG groups. I heard no one "complain" about opposing viewpoints. On the contrary they welcomed any point of view. Politics in radio is very bad form is a opinion and not a policy.

    "National calling channel?" Please. 3100 is dead aside from radio checks and talk about the weather. A couple of guys decided to talk about something that people are actually engaged with and all of the sudden it's a problem.
