3840 has really gone into the toilet since Art and his buddies left. Longer you listen the worse it gets. Pretty sad. These people are harmful to the hobby.

We have often used that frequency back east, and the last time we did, someone came on and told us to f-off.

I usually stay off 80 unless I'm doing CW or digital mode. Too many slack-jaw malcontents on SSB. It clears up better on the higher freqs or 160. For some reason, 80 seems to get all the idiots now.

The one ham called the President and his wife "gorillas"to me that is pretty offensive especially broadcasting on a well known frequency where Art and his buddies hanged.
just saying the tone is not becoming of respected hams on a well known freq and does the hobby no good.

Art and his buddies would get a little "loose" on 80 meters also,. You want to hear something funny check this out! This is when this Freq was great. big difference with the crowd who are broadcasting on there now.
Ben falling asleep at the mic LOL
At the end Art says Romana was on floor laughing.

It is illegal, Fan. The problem is the FCC can't police the bands anymore. So some spots have become more or less like Usenet. ;)

I didn't listen to the whole thing, but heard all I could take. They are disgusting bigots. :(

Sounds like they are confusing their radio use with a phone conversation.

I believe it used to be, if not illegal, unacceptable to curse on a phone. Times change..
