Formerly W6NUT, formerly KE6RRI, now K6MWT, this is the amateur (ham) 2 meter repeater* up on Santiago Peak (5,600 feet or 1707 meters) that covers Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, and the Inland Empire probably on less than 45 watts. The ".435 machine" has been on the air since 1962, when it was WA6TDD on Mount Wilson. Since the late 1980s, the repeater has been a free speech zone, which means in practice it's like a two-way radio version of a public access TV station. All the regular boring ham operators hate .435 and the crew that uses it, but they don't realize if the machine vanished, those guys would show up on their repeaters to raise hell.

Example of the weird jamming that goes on at K6MWT late at night.

The jamming also goes on during the day.


Roger Bly, the present repeater owner, having
it out with the angry old-timers three years ago
near Halloween.

_____________________________________________________

* A repeater is an automatic receiver-transmitter in a cinderblock radio bunker on top of a mountain or on the roof of a highrise, anywhere high up. Amateur operators use their 5 watt hand radios to transmit on an input frequency and then monitor the output on another frequency (radios can be easily programmed for repeaters, including the sub-audible tone that flips the repeater open when the mic button is pushed), but the machines can be remote-controlled by the control operator to "time out" jammers by turning the input off and on, or using VoIP to drown them out by talking loudly, I've heard it all. As far as I can tell, the deadkey jammers are all in LA and they are using radios with linear amplifiers putting out signals above 100 watts. I actually don't like calling the machine by Bly's callsign, because I think he will ditch the repeater after a while because it's too much of an annoyance to deal with.

And I know industrial musicians who love this stuff. They sample and reuse it all the time--and the hams don't know it's happening.

I guess these nerds are on disability or something--who else would have the time or desire to play Tarzan yodels on a ham repeater at 3 AM?

Most of them work in contractor-y jobs like HVAC, plumbing, electrical, etc., though a few are retired or disabled (the Migliori brothers come to mind). Any ham knows that anything said over the air is ripe for recording - these guys just don't care and the FCC doesn't care about all the cursing/jamming/"lid behavior" because it keeps all the loonies in one place. The guys who talk in high voices ("squeakies") will show up during the dead times to start things; most of the time it doesn't work.

Above is a video of a "squeaky" on Easter Sunday afternoon back in 2013 when the repeater was on 147.450mHz. This guy wasted 30 minutes trying to heckle Richard Clark (N6UZS) to show up. I hacked that track down to under 6 minutes because it was mostly dead air.

https://vimeo.com/143101004
Another 2013 number, this is pretaped jamming using bits of a rant-sermon podcast by "Pastor" James David Manning of ATLAH in Harlem. You get to hear the control operator turn off the input and turn it on again and the customized repeater message. There was more jamming than normal back then because certain users hated Christina Holtzschuh, the repeater owner.

Cocksucking is "important" to them, I see..... :lol: Just curious, how many hours of this stuff do you have? I take it people pass copies around samizdat-style.

I record this stuff myself; I sent some of it to the guys who run the Laughing Policeman Wireless Society, they put snippets on their SoundCloud account. I have hours more of recorded material I need to release. I'm not the only one listening and there are two or three YouTube accounts of ham radio dudes posting material. This isn't like the "Troggs Tapes" or those Martin & Lewis The Caddy radio ad out-takes where they flub lines and curse; those were one-offs, these licensed amateurs have been doing this stuff for decades.

Above are the jammers in San Francisco on a 146.820 mHz repeater in the early 1980s. The machine that is now on that frequency in LA area, W6FNO, does not seem to be the same repeater.

Broadcastify web feed of K6MWT: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/14747/web

Broadcastify web feed of WIN system: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/8468/web

Listen to them simultaneously to experience a normal (if trans-nationally linked) repeater and the craziness of the LA machine. I encourage people to listen to them separately if they have never listened to a repeater before.

After listening around I found the shortwave version of K6MWT: 3840 kHz.

Populated by such wonderful guys as William "Billy" Crowell, W6WBJ (license in a perpetual deadlock of suspension without being terminated) who loves to jam the WARFA net on 3908 kHz (and got a $25,000 fine for doing so), 3840 is an un-named QSO frequency operating on lower sideband mode. You also get Tim Volz (KK7HO), who used to jam the neo-Munchkin "Liberty net" run by Kevin Strom* (WB4AIO) in the late 1990s; John Prukop (WA7BZI) who tries to jam Billy, and Phillip Randazzo, Sr. (KB7AAA) who goes after Prukop. They have "squeakies" just like .435, music jammers, soundboard clips, Billy plays his anti-Art Bell** music and sketches, etc. If the FCC gave a damn, all of these people would be in jail.

http://69.27.184.62:8901/ <=== Half Moon Bay SDR stream.
The WARFA jamming can be heard on this northern Utah SDR stream: http://websdr1.utahsdr.org:8901/
__________

* He ran the infamous "Voice of To-Morrow" pirate station on shortwave and the top of the AM dial during the 1980s. This became the syndicated show American Dissident Voices which is now online.

** Crowell had it out for Bell in the early 2000s for some reason, also a beef with Moody T. Law (WQ6I) who runs the WARFA net. Because of shortwave propagation, the jamming can be heard across a large portion of the US.

Sad news: Henry Stange, WA6RXZ, was found in a shallow grave out in Joshua Tree National Park on June 2nd.....Stange was the "jammer's jammer" over at W6NUT/K6MWT.

http://www.kesq.com/news/human-remains- ... /748842971

https://old.reddit.com/r/amateurradio/c ... socal_user

Real love-hate relationship between Stange (mostly called "Henry" on-air) and the collection of slobs on that repeater, reams of YouTube videos of his on-air antics are out there if you look. Coroner has still not released a report identifying Henry Stange as the body, which fuels suspicion that he was killed by narcotrafficantes for stumbling across a cartel conference in the desert.

Old pictorial website of Stange's "Casa de Dirt Farm" in Temecula: http://wa6rxz.com/
Which is a redirect to a page from here: http://www.435.org/

And the bitter, semi-coherent rage factory that is the .435 flamebook:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s ... fox-b-1-ab

They don't let people in, so you have to look at it using webcache. Some of the comments to sate the uninitiated:

n6zkz - 435 detective 06/15

Comments:
I'm bringing Ashley Newberry k6nec in for questioning. She was in town around the time of Henry's demise. She seemed to have some sort of grudge with him as well. She's also the type of psychotic whack job that could murder a man and pretend like everything is ok.

***FRAUD ALERT*** 06/17

Comments:
DO NOT donate any money to the hank Gofundme page it is a total scheme to collect funding over the death of henry stange even though there has been no official death notice or cause per the coroner,only a real sick needy individual would ever take advantage and pray on those less fortunate and use the death as a means or an opportunity to make money off of others grief including using the children for their own gain.



Stop using henries [sic] kids those poor kids will never see their father again and all you can think of is how to line your pockets with cash by defrauding the public by using the sympathy of the kids just for your own gain.

SPARC 06/17

Comments:
While the SPARC group sends out their condolences concerning the recent death of Henry stange I feel that karma was at play here. Karma is something my mother explained to me when I was very young and she explained to me the Korean concept that "If you hurt others or disrupt others lives this negative energy finds its way back to you." Therefore it is obvious Henry stange disruptions on both the 449.500 and 446.640 repeater systems finally came back to him as karma.

Let this be a lesson to the rest of you , it is a good possibility that this might happen to you by disrupting our repeater system. This message goes clearly out to : JMM , Sanchez, USO, ham sandwhich [sic] types , Heath Collins , and all other misfits , squeakies and morons of 435 . Your constant disruptions do nothing to stop our intellectual conversations and qso's. We can easily change to P25 and utilize our channel 2 system to eliminate any disruptions.

However when we do find out all the disrupters on our system we will enforce our own "law of karma."

You can take this as a friendly warning. And that includes the person calling my relatives and conducting phone harassment. This would include those driving around my house during the night I have you on camera and have lots of karma to give to those violators of my personal property and space. Go find someone else to play games with I am not the person you want t mess with. SPARC is not the repeater to turn into another 435[.]

Bonus Billy Crowell news:

Captain Douchebag has "won" his crappy Notice of Apparent Liability hearing after three years because the Department of Justice decided not to bring it to trial.

https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?thread ... ay.615322/

"The ALJ [Administrative Law Judge] immediately set Mr. Crowell's non-renewal (license) case for an October hearing in Washington, D.C." Yes, to repeat what I wrote before, the guy has been transmitting on legally-grey license since the early 2000s. I hope he is forced to retake all three levels of ham radio tests.

EVEN MORE Billy Crowell W6WBJ news

The FCC decided that no, they weren't going to play by Supertroll's rules, and last week judged that Crowell's suspended license was DONE, ending a decade of deadlock. The man of the hour was FCC Administrative Law Judge Richard L. Sippel, who decided that every part of Crowell's case was junk.

Despite losing his license Crowell was heard jamming the WARFA net on the evening of July 12th, which makes him a pirate jammer because he was using the same soundboard loop with his callsign asking to sign into the WARFA net. We will have to see if on this Sunday, July 15th, at 8pm if he carries on being a pirate jammer.
