Sorry guys, but you're trying to punish the wrong people and at the same
time you run the risk of giving the amateur service a bad name.
The people who buy the cars generally know nothing about the device that
opens their car doors, and playing childish games on them will serve no
You need a reminder that the 70cm band has NEVER been ours and if not
for being able to share it with the primary user, we probably would
never have had access to it. We are now and have always been the
secondary service, and that means accepting things that we may not like,
like the loss of 420-430MHz in vk6, and parts of that segment in other
cities. LIPD's are here to stay, as is the loss of part of the band. We
WILL eventually lose more of the band. Get used to it.
Having to move a few repeaters frequencies to cater for the LIPD's is a
minor inconvenience compared with loss of the band for.
The confessions on this topic clearly show why the amateur operator is
no longer a respected member of the community.
Before you start confessing to what you have done, or what you will do
to inconvenience users of LIPD's go and read your licence conditions.
The ACMA would dearly like to get rid of us, don't give them reasons.
