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."
