LAME LAME LAME! Even LAMER! Utterly LAME and disrespectful to the spirit of HAM Radio! Probably many of the same players and shakers that profit off of the CBer shootouts.... I am far from a prude or a goody 2 shoes. I can even admit being a bit of a rebel and might even appreciate a little bit of scofflaw behaviour in the name of occasional personal experimentation and amusement. but these types of nonsense and utter full on disrespectful attention is just plain assanine idiot. Please understand that I am not berating the authors that are relating these things but I am highly frowning upon those that are hams who would participate on such type of street race upon our sacred ham bands and or represent our esteemed community!!!!! I have witnessed a few avid DXers and contest station trustee station operators routinely run As much as nearly 10kW within US jurisdiction..... At least they didnt behave as total complete LIDS. Although a couple of them did make me cringe when I would hear the way they converse on the air. I always just found pity on them and figured it was because their parents were all probably related in more than one way before marriage and they were probably born defective!
