Ham Radio

I just aced my ham radio exam at age 52. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? You may now call me VA7ZEB. Or Reg. Whatever works.

I am surprised what affirmative action has done to those exams. They must have really lowered the standards. It will mess up the wavebands.

lol@affirmative action. I actually felt bad for the friend I took the test with. He failed. Unfortunate.

Because I'm slightly obsessive I'm working on a site now to store all the information I have about local frequencies.

Congrats. Hope you find some equipment and people to talk to. I talk on radios all day. Talking includes listening and can't be done at the same time.
Sometimes it is just standby, and sometimes it is just frustrating having the equipment.
Maybe it is your radio, maybe it is the people. But now go out and make use of that investment!
Yes we are white and may look a bit scary but we are a Symbiote! And yet though disavowed by many as American we are not the same as IT! We are not IT! We do not look like IT and we are not the same as IT! Do not call us IT!

I haven't used them at all yet. lol. I think I just like having the license more than using the radios, at least so far.

Motocycling license

Postby Deplorable » Sun Apr 22, 2018 2:16 am

I got a brilliant idea and I will share it with my fellow bbaders.
An old man (just like Reg who recently "absolved" his ham license with the help of affirmative action and myself) recently talked me into motorcycles.

I know, I did some quite some licenses in my life and soon afterwards lost interest. A real time dragger and waste of money. I don't even remember some of them. BUT maybe there are many outstanding positive ass-pects to the whole motocycling thing.

Pros:
- motocycles are cheap (gas, maintenance, tax)
- replacing the car with motocycle you can ride faster, more economically, more rude (no front license place, also sneaking through traffic jams in no time), more loud, more "macho" male, keeping the body in shape, without faggy comforts (A/C)
- you have some cool non-tech, non-red-pilling thing to talk to a vietnamese girl (until she gives you babies and you gotta trade it again for a f'ckin stupid SUV): "hey, uhm, yes this is actually my Hayabusa. Wanna take a short ride to the beach with me miss Vietnam?". Engine: *RRROOOAAAAAAARRRR*
- you can join a club that almost behaves like a closed society nation
- outlaw motocycle gangs: no rules but club rules, total anarchy on the streets
- Ghost Rider Sweden


Cons:
- Motocycling in winter time in the snow sucks donkey-balls, I tell yah (I drove an italian scooter for 10 years)
- costs money and is pretty egoistic and doesn't take you more close to the creator/ doesn't advance you spiritually but is another time dragger instead.
- doesn't advance the white race one bit, let alone building up a religious community. Well, you can visit more communities in a shorter time (fast method of travel), that is for sure...
- Only "old men" do Motocycling

F*** ham, hail motorbikes!

Postby Deplorable » Sun Apr 22, 2018 3:07 am

...more pros for motocicles:
- you can impress ("buy") your children, when they visit you. "ahh, daddy, lets do a vueltita, porfi!"
- ACAB
- did I mention you get all the chicks?

Shit, I gotta do it!!!!!!!!! Love you all, bbaders. Hail Asia (Shem), home of motocycles. Praise YHWH!! Japhet is cum-cum cum-cumming!

I rode for many years. Gave them up over a decade ago. Might revisit them when I'm older. You've hit all the right points (and some weird ones to boot). The only thing I'd add is they're dangerous and they can't carry anything so it's good to have access to a car for hauling things.
