John Beckman - W4BTX HAM RADIO "A PAST TIME FOR A LIFETIME"
This the the month for Field Day. Tell me this:: If thousands of "protesters" who are filling the streets, burning stores, destroying private property - if they are NOT afraid oft he killer Chinese virus - why, then, can we not let a few hams get together for normal Field Day?
I think we all know the answer to that. You haven't heard of thecorona virus since the riots began have you? That's because the virus was a political tactic first and foremost and not really concerned with your health. At first we were told that over 2 million Americans would die. Then it was 200,000, then 100,00 and that has apparently been achieved. BUT, you must member that the CDC is counting car crash victims, suicides, murders, all of those were COUNTED as deaths from the virus. The CDC has lost all credibility. Why didn't they catch this virus last fall when it had already affected me and hundreds of others. It didn't have a name, so we thought it was just the flu..
What is your point, John? I'm glad you asked that question. Everything in America has been politicized. And that includes the ARRL and ham radio. Closing Dayton, clubs canceling ham feats, even sitting some silly 6 feet apart at club meetings.
The fresh air and sunshine are elements where the virus CANNOT exist. So what is wrong with a club getting out for Field Day? I know I am beating a dead horse becaue the ARRL has already decclared that Field Day will be xome bastardized "shelter in place" crap.
I'm not a member of a club anymore. I was once very active tin the Atlanta Radio Club in the "good old days." But if I were in a club now, I would vote to have Field Day as usual. Why are we giving up our ham traditions because of an over blown virus, that is wally no worse than the common flue, and a bunch of foreign financed rioters who choose to call themselves victims?
This country is being torn apart by forces that want to destroy America. And it is only going to get worse as the summer progresses and we grow closer to the November elections. What does that have to do with ham radio, John? Ham radio is an avocation for individuals who are capable of thinking for themselves. We are not sheep, and we shouldn't act like sheep..
