Which band is less religious 20m or 17m ?

Started by Galen Thurber. Last reply by Emmett Hoops on Monday. 4 Replies

I'm trying to decide which QRP HF band to use 20m or 17m. Which one is less religious? Heard that 17m was more classy, but a 17m antenna wont match other bands. Or should I build a quad or yagi and…Continue

Two questions.  Are there still active members of this group?

Would anyone be interested in having a monthly net (maybe) on, say, 15 meters or even at the high end of 17?

On PSK, the "God Bless" signoff is ubiquitous.  I liked one response I saw the other day - "May the Flying Spaghetti Monster touch you with His Noodly Appendage" - I told the guy that, as a pastafarian, I greatly appreciated it!

To counter the evangelists on ham bands, instead of "God Bless"

say "may the godly be less"

Down here in Costa Rica, we refer to the nightly ranters on 75m. as the "finqueros cerdos" - the "pig farmers."  Most seem to display a level of ignorance suggesting that their only contact with education is a weekly trip down from the hills to town to visit the grocery store. They make me embarrassed to be a gringo ham down here, frankly.

Nice to meet you, James.  Look for me on 17m and 30m PSK if you are ever on that mode.

Yeah, 75 meters is especially rant filled.  Nice to meet you.

Well, I have not set up my station yet since I moved to Nebraska, but I will be soon. And lo! There are in fact freethinkers and atheists in ham radio (you wouldn't guess by listening to HF).

Yeah, sure, I'd like to get my hands on some of that gear.  But mostly, I can't wait for the Rapture, because it means we'll finally be rid of those sactimonious, self-righteous sonsabitches.  Any hell that Jesus has stored up for us in the post-Rapture era can't be any worse than putting up with their endless hypocritical moralizing and control freakery. 


And as an added bonus - we get 75 meters back!  With all that new gear to boot!  Sounds like heaven to me!

Dayton Hamvention starts Friday, 20 May and runs through 22 May. Think of all the stuff we can loot up on come Sunday when the raptured have departed. And while I'm at it, what's the grid square of Heaven? Or Hell, for that matter?
