    Onno...Tell us all what contribution have you made of note to this hobby sitting there with a licence virtually handed to you and others of your ilk and you want more i am a keyboard warrior only when i see utter rubbish published such as the posts you put here ,people that respond in a manner being critical of the direction of this hobby rub you the wrong way well do not post rubbish .Post something news worthy such as how the Wireless Institute whose membership has been falling since the 1980's due to in fighting lack of action in tackling idiots who tried to destroy this hobby actually supported them then in order to build up their membership pushed for this glorified C.B licence did not deliver the results they wanted and what do we have now to show for it.
    1)..loss of operating procedure as per ACMA hand book .
    2)..Nets all over the place talking about anything but ham radio,must be fair there is an boat anchor net on 80 Meters.
    3..) Swearing such as i and others from days gone have never heard before 3.590 notorious for it every night the tirade of swearing at anyone and everyone who complains to this group on their activities and guess what that beacon of light the WIA not a word silence is golden.
    I can keep going on about what has changed and the class of operators since the introduction of this Foundation licence,but to be fair to some holders of the Foundation they are decent guys and girls i have spoken to a few that fall into this category they try their best to shake the shackles of C.B radio but not many.
    As for achievements in life i did my bit for this country when the call came after that i studied hard to become an comms engineer i helped out in my local radio club teaching others to get their Novice ticket i supported my family in good and bad times no whinging just did the best my children were educated to university level and also i passed my AOCP written test and Morse at 17 years old the hard way not like you and others who wanted all on a silver platter wonder what you achieved in life ??

    LINDSAY..No we are not wasting our time and brains because people read this and maybe just maybe will start to think about all these goings on here as for his Podcast i do not hold much creedence to it as comes from a self opinionated bigot a Johnny come lately to the hobby whose only contributions are false and baseless appealing to his kind.Lindsay we have to fight the fight or we may as well pack it in keep at it i will be there as well and as from yesterday so will a couple of my old timer ham friends.

    Oh no my friends I will continue until this person acts in a way that is of some benefit to our great hobby. I'm actually ashamed to see such things written by him in a way that degrades so many good people. I am also looking at the use of their club station VK6ARN being used by foundation and standard licence holders without us knowing if the regulations are being abused. At this point I do not know who holds the call but checks are being processed. Cheers VK6NO

    Oh dear, You have the one of the authors agreeing with you NN6EE.
    I called no one any names but the authors clearly state all decent VK6 hams have been invited by our colleagues in VK5 to their gathering. Go and read the NEWSWEST bulletin on the site for yourself.

    Now I know the good people of South Australia didn't invite all Western Australian Lemmings as was quoted but would have just asked us to attend if possible.

    The authors of this story are broadcasting their own garbage as they feel fit and now if I read the regulations right are even prepared to break the law in their pursuits.

    We are waiting to find out from the regulatory body how they used an Advanced callsign VK6ARN in their travels to a field day etc when they are only in possession of Foundation and Standard licences.

    There was no Advanced licence holder present when they happily used this call. Waiting for WIA and ACMA to respond. Cheers VK6NO
