The lunatics have taken over the asylum. Well not quite they have taken over 5799khz short wave just one criminal kilohertz from the 49 meter band where safety awaits any renegade pirate, who does not want to pirate too illegally. Once again our philosopher of the month Long Wave Dave has been stirring up the proverbial hornets nest, that is free radio legend Garry's forum.
But whats all this about DM's I hear you screaming incessantly at me. Well folk of a certain era will remember fondly Dr Marten Boots. Yes I know they are still around, but these day's they are a must have for rebellious fashion ladies and lovers of sturdy comfortable shoes, rather than the must have foot-ware of any self respecting skinhead.
Anyhow let us do a quote from our favorite forum - "David LW you are such a complete and utter clown. You talk absolute rubbish constantly and have no real knowledge of free radio. You constantly insult the people on this board who have much greater experience on the topic than you have or will ever have. If your advice was followed there would never be any free or hobby radio on bands like MW because OFCOM etc would consider us to be a bunch of idiots more likely to need attention from local social services. 'Narnia a place where magical things are said to happen'. David you would like the place, but unfortunately I doubt you could find the wardrobe" - Dave Martin.
Whoa that's savage for a place where respect for other people is, well lets quote Garry this time, after all it's his forum - "Please take note we will not tolerate ANY FORM of direct attacks on any individual". Wait a minute! wasn't Mr Martin Persona Non Grata from Garry's pad after giving himself over to the dark side otherwise known as the joke board? Oh well perhaps all is forgiven and this was just a momentary lapse. Lets have another quote from another thread.
"David, why? Well to minimise the chance of harmonics and sprogs for starters. Then of course the resonant antenna when matched to the the TX will radiate the signal more efficiently than the proverbial piece of wet string. Don't pick a fight with me over radio, because you will end up losing. My RSM told me that".
Wow, fighting talk, D.M must have his D.M's firmly boot-laced. How can poor old Long Wave Dave handle this one. Dave Martin in his Doc Martens armed with a soldering iron in one hand and a resonant antenna in the other, thank goodness we can look for a timely intervention form Garry. You what? He hasn't?
