14.313 MHz USB shenanigans, 13 MAR 2024, 1621 UTC
« on: March 13, 2024, 1623 UTC »
For many years I've heard hams behaving badly all over 80m and at 7.200 MHz LSB, but it's been ages since I heard anything on the notorious 20m bands gathering spot. At the moment (1623z) there's mostly one obnoxious sounding guy who may or may not be actively arguing, but at 1621 there were several including this particular ham who were all talking over each other and cursing.

14.313 still has its following of detractors but not as frequent as it was in the past. I just tuned in at 2150 UTC 14 Mar., to find a few choice words being thrown around by one individual at another.
There are a few regular individuals who monitor the frequency just for shenanigans.
