Re: Pro FM birds! ~ C.B., Etc.




You have to understand something about this QRM situation.  

First of all you have a large number of inexperienced operators who make
a lot of 
un-necessary QRM due to their lack of experience of operating in a
high-traffic 
environment.

Then you have the ones who put a carrier on and capture the FM bird, 
make strange
noises (real or artificial), scratching, whistling, blowing into the
mike, etc.  ( I was 
always told it was bad for the mike to be blowing into it!).  On an  FM
bird or repeater, 
they know they have a "captive audience" for their nonsense. There's
noplace else 
to listen.  The reason they don't do it on the  SSB/CW birds is because
people can 
move around and get away from them.  Also they can pick on one QSO to QRM
 but
the rest of the users are spared  the aggravation.  

For those of you who don't work HF, there are a lot of incidences of 
jamming, etc. 
on the bands.  But, the method is the same. The jammers concentrate on
nets and 
DX pileups, places where there are a lot of people in one place so they
can cause
maximum aggravation.

It's just a mental thing. They are  SICK!  And they try to suck the other
stations on 
frequency into playing their game.
