Radio Tornado 6950 USB 2017
« on: May 29, 2024, 0501 UTC »
Hi All,

I used to listen to RMWW back in the 1990's, when I worked security midnights.

The story I was told that Doctor Tornado actually gave his Amateur Radio Station callsign, repeatedly on the air. which is something I heard him do once, it was in June, when Amateur Radio Field was happening.

I also heard that Dr. T. was a bit "In the bag" one night and actually threatened the FCC. Something to the effect of, "Let the FCC come try and bust me... I have enough guns to keep an army at bay for years."

Anyhow, I heard he was sent a warning letter and shut the station down for good. He was somewhere in the Pocono Mountains very high up and used a wire antenna.

Best,

-Chuck

Radio Metallica World Wide was a fave of mine to listen to back in the 90s, Dr. Tornado, Seņor El Niņo , was a blast
