10/11 meters / Re: People who live in glass houses...
« on: March 23, 2020, 1814 UTC »
We have a HUGE a$$-hole ham operator(Matt Bohl W7ZFG) in Phoenix now running about 1500 watts on 38LSB and on AM channel 19 raising hell and causing problems and jamming the frequencies, playing music and all sorts of crap ! He got into it with me and now raises hell every night, he's close to me so it's a problem so I just go to another channel, but I have a feeling people are going to get tired of this mental midget, who by the way is an ex convict for drug and other offenses, and people are going to take matters into their own hands because Lord knows the FCC won't do anything about this idiot !

Anyone remember Sheriff Bob, Triple 6, and Rizzo Radio and a few others out of Phoenix way back, what a bunch they used to tear up 555 all day long !

The FCC isn't going to do anything about it.Unless he's interfering with EMS,Police or aircraft they won't send anyone out.The FCC no longer has the money or man power to do much anymore and all you have to do is listen in EVERY evening to 3840 KHZ, in the day 7.250 KHZ or 14.313KHZ and listen in this crap there has been going on for years and years and little has been done.

   Wikileaks exposes covert US operation using CB
A new leak of sensitive government communication techniques and deception operations has electrified the global electronic intelligence community. During the Iraq War, the operation reached its zenith.

Wikileaks has exposed the fascinating story of how the cb and free band frequencies were used to mask spread spectrum and frequency hopping tactical radio traffic, and as well for communication with undercover agents in enemy territory.
Federal agencies had been using these frequencies for years, in the same manner, with 100% communications security. The cacophony of sounds, the chaotic slang, the multitude of languages and the vagaries of propagation made this frequency range a Wild West of unpredictable and turbulent nature. Underneath it all, Uncle Sam was hiding, thus we get our first inkling of the patriotic radio operators who provided the covering cascade of road talk, skip-shooting, and local gossip groups of oldsters.

As the buildup for the invasion of Iraq got underway, "export" radios seized by the FCC, and others bought at truck stops by procurement contractors were configured for widespread deployment. In this phase "cb modules" were crafted in a multitude of configurations. Units were carried by sailboats skippered by retired Navy personnel, and they steered for waters where propagation predictions promised that 11 meter signals would arrive in Iraq with some diurnal frequency. These units broadcast tapes of 11 meter traffic recorded by FCC monitoring stations during the sixties, seventies and up to that time. Similar setups were mounted on aircraft that, when flying within ground wave range, would switch on their modules, filling the 11 meter airwaves with inanities, Smoky Reports, Alpha-Tangos and renegade hams talking antennas.
Navy ships offshore electronically bombarded the entire Middle East with the same traffic, frequently changing antennas and polarization's to present a barrage of confusion for enemy monitors. It turns out that many covert operators had penetrated the Iraqi Taxi services, which also utilized 11 meter frequencies. Thus they were able to operate undetected in these same bands using specially converted 11m radios in spread-spectrum, with frequency hopping. These radios looked identical to common taxi radios. A satellite (code-named Lounge Lizard) had been positioned in low earth orbit to facilitate the flow of intelligence emanating from the Baghdad area. To farther saturate the ether, and in the tradition of the WWII code talkers, two groups- code named the "Urbans" and "Hillbillies"- had been secretly inserted on high terrain. These groups kept the airwaves flooded with chatter in their undecipherable brogue, and could communicate directly with the Taxi agents, in the clear with no fear of enemy comprehension. This deluge of strange sounds impelled a Russian Intercept Unit posted the Saddam to mutiny, so fatigued were they from hearing "Maul Dropper and Ratchet Jaw" while monitoring.

The ARRL played a major part in the deception operation to convince adversary agents operating Stateside that Cbers and freebanders could never be part of a Government operation. Many of these agents had entered the US as grad students, and were on the lookout for any technologies that could be harnessed for their national defense and offense efforts. Thus, they often found their way to Hamfests looking for technical info. At every turning they heard the ARRL Hams trained for the operation talking trash about Chicken Banders, how ignorant they were, and that they invaded 10 meters. The actors most convincing, adamant and vehement in this orchestration were operators who never operated at a frequency higher than 8 mhz. The way some were able to actually froth at the mouth during the denunciation convinced the information seekers that the 11 meter people must be fearsome outcasts who could never have government sanction.

The complete revelation, posted by WikiLeaks, was stolen from the classified "Intercept Science Journal" a trade journal for the SigInt community.

Yeah the enforcement is a joke,way too little,way too late ! Listen to 3.840 MHz its as bad if not worse sometimes than 14.313 and a few warning letters will not deter any of these old timers who have been doing this crap for 20 years or more,and some stations are in Canada and just don't care.
