Wednesday Simplexton Net Results #simplex-results

K4PEW Paul Wieloszynski <k4pew@...>
 

See/Hear Wednesday's Simplexton Net here.

Don't forget the Simplexton Breakfast at 8am (more or less) at Courtney's Restaurant. 4066 Mt. Juliet Road in (duh) Mt. Juliet. You'll just have to guess at the call-in frequency.

As they say "We all had a real good time"; well, at least I did.  Results are as follows:
2m check-ins totalled 35 on 146.415 FM
10m check-ins totalled 10 on 28.415 USB

As I've stated on the net, more than a few times, the objective in Ham Radio is to "get on the air". Otherwise, why have a transceiver?  Just get a REceiver.

Our 2m nets are an introduction into Simplex and antennas for newcomers to the hobby and the 2m USB, 6m USB and 10m USB nets are inducements for those new Hams to move onward and upward, if they so desire.

Therefore, your individual participation in the nets are are part of the whole picture to those who are new or less mature in the hobby. 

I believe, that as a whole, we have contributed much to the big picture of Ham Radio in TN and hopefully to a wider audience for those who see our three sites on the internet.
Keep up the good work!!!

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else ... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

No offense but if you have Alexa, Siri, Echo, Ring..or any "smart device" in or around your home....you're an idiot and get what you deserve.
All fancy and free features come a cost, the tech companies get to know EVERYTHING about you. Sure right now they use the data to target marketing so you will buy more Chinese crap that you don't need.
But that data can and will be used against you by employers, law enforcement, lawyers and an alphabet soup of government agencies for purposes both mundane and nefarious.
Congratulations! We've just constructed a prison will no walls and no guards.
Welcome to your Brave New World..

The "Internet of Things" in general is bad idea. Have we not learned anything from the latest round of ransom wear attacks?
Now imagine it is the dead of winter. coldest week in 100 years. some hacker in a far away land, decides to turn off all the "smart" Thermostats. tens of thousands of text messages pop up on phones all over the country...
"Cold Night Isn't? Send me 100 Dollars in bitcoin and i will turn your heat back out before your pipes freeze and frost bite sets in LOL"

FYI: I'm not some sort of tin foil hat wearing Luddite, I love tech and use it everyday, heck i even work in tech.
I realize there are trade offs for features verses my privacy that, personally I am not going to tolerate Putting a internet microphone and camera in my house is where i draw the line.
Your priorities may be different, just don't be surprised when things go sideways because.. you willing put surveillance devices in your home.
