The Infamous RXA vs CCW "Incident"

The incident occured on 7/14/92, between 7:00 and 7:30pm. Gary WA6CCW (now K6AMA), Alan N6VUD, Mathew KD6KVH, and others were on Alan's machine joking around. Gary was impersonating Jack N6UYB who was considered fair game since he had just made his family homeless by managing to catch his trailer-home on fire while towing it to Kentucky. Jack with flaming trailer in tow finally pulled over and allowed the trailer to burn to the ground, along with all their belongings.

The incident began when Rick N6RXA keyed up to thoughtfully remind Gary that even State Techs aren't above the law...

Gary then reminded Rick that he used to say Alan would never have a repeater. Rick was asked to stay off of Alan's machine. His response in legendary.

Alan keyed up in an attempt to de-fuse the situation.

An "unidentified jammer" then captured Alan's machine, playing a Newsline tape claiming that the FCC was beginning to clamp down on the "bad hams."

Gary then offered his "psychological profile" of the suspected jammer.

Hams don't hold a grudge. A few weeks after this incident Rick met Gary at a Chicken Net BBQ. They shook hands and agreed to let bygones be bygones. It would appear this incident turned out to be, as Gary put it, "good for the hobby."
