    Can somebody tell me why W1AW can broadcast and why K1MAN is not supposed to? Why people are allowed to phone in and advertise their Ham Radios for sale (Swap nets) and why K1MAN can't refer to his website? The ARRL sells millions of $ worth or Ham related merchandise -- doesn't it?

    How come W1AW can start up on frequencies that are sometimes already in use by Hams all around the world, but still should not be regarded harmful and malicious interference? Is the International Ham fraternity expected to get out of the way when W1AW wants to start up? Most new Hams outside the US don't even know who W1AW is. Neither is it a prerequisite to know what or who the ARRL is. Why should one station enjoy privileges others don’t? The FCC may offer the ARRL certain privilages, but Amateur Radio is an International hobby and W1AW has over the years taken over frequencies already in use.

    If International regulations s state that no Amateur Radio station shall make one way broadcast, how come W1AW is exempt from this rule? Sure, I have found W1AW bulletins of some use, but I also find K1MAN transmissions serve to educate an International audience about some of the double standards that exists out there. Rather than gang up on the man, I suggest we reform not only K1MAN but also the ARRL.

    As an unbiased listener from outside the US, I have for years listened to Glenn Baxter’s side of the story and I truly believe he is being bullied by the big wigs. Do I approve of everything I hear him do/say? NO, CERTAINLY NOT.

    You are not "unbiased", you are obviously biased FOR Baxter. What you are, is uninformed. Your remarks about one-way transmission, specifically comparing Baxter's transmissions to W1AW certainly prove that.

    That's your problem. And proof that you are indeed biased.

    From what I understand, k1man or anyone else for that matter is allowed to broadcast amateur radio news. Unfortunately for him, what he calls news is propaganda, which is not allowed. He was giving personal derogatory editorials.

    Touche - yet my comments were of a general nature, and not directed personally toward any individual. Seems to me then, that the pot was calling the kettle GREY...

    Oh that didn't help.  Now we're going to get into censorship.

    One thing that should happen before ANYONE transmits (scheduled or not) is to listen to the frequencies and NOT transmit over an on-going QSO.

    Stupidity and arrogance should be painful. If it was, MAN would be in agony.

    OK Mr. Baxter, I now have heard your side of the story.
    And after reading your response, and to give you a fair shake, I listened to your diatribes on the air as well as your web site.

    Having given my best to see your side of what's going on, and, understand what your point is, I have come to one conclusion.

    You are depriving a village somewhere, of an idiot.

    Part 97.3 - Definitions----

    As stated in the NAL, K1MAN's broadcasts are to the general public.

    The W1AW bulletins are to the general amateur radio public. As is evident at the start of each bulletin ; QST QST de W1AW ... or on voice... "Calling All Amateurs ect..."

    So by strict definition W1AW does not "broadcast".
    And, as I have posted before, there is evidence that they do indeed have a control operator at the site during,and he does listen to the frequency and has qsy'd a bit to avoid qsos in progress.

    I am not, nor do I care to be, a League member. But fair is fair.
