    Yep the OP should have said " but I am black, you got a problem with that?" Hint,,,,,no one can see you on the radio.

    This reminds me that there used to be an operator who hung out around 14.175 and was always making racist remarks. I think he lived in or near Oakland. I haven't heard him on the air in several years, thankfully.

    I've heard them a time or two there as well, and, yeah, seemed like regular fellers.

    The problem, of course, is that once you have a big enough statistical sample (i.e., "all hams") yer gonna get a Gausian/normal distribution, and once you are a couple of standard deviations from the mean, yer gonna see "weirdness." These tend to stick out, for obvious reasons.

    The proper response, or so I think, is to push the PTT button (presuming you're not using VOX) and utter, "sorry about that, asswipe," then twiddle the dial to somewhere else. It's a waste of your time to ponder the bizarre and the clueless.

    Spin the VFO dial as W7UUU said.

    Is it "racist" if it is true?
