PATASKALA, OHIO — Lukas Guzman, a 27 year-old newly licensed ham radio operator, was booted from the Flicking County Amateur Club last night during their annual meeting at Crusty’s Wharf. When pressed for a reason, the other members simply stated that “he is too involved.”

Overly ambitious ham radio operator Lukas Guzman, seen here checking his email while enjoying a cup of coffee while attending an art lecture.

“He wanted us to get VE credentials and actually test new hams,” exclaimed Mort Brenley. “He was always excitedly talking about working DX.”

Guzman noted that he really felt the blowback when he brought up how much fun a DXpedition would be. “They looked at me like I had been inhaling contact cleaner,” he said.

Tensions came to a head after everyone had their second helping of clam chowder. “I whipped out my typed to-do list, and everyone’s face went green,” said Guzman.

Brenley concurred. “He got to ‘school outreach’ and I saw Vernon fumbling for his nitro pills. I knew he had to be stopped.”

There was an unanimous vote, 4-0, and Guzman was removed from the club.

“He is damn lucky we didn’t toss him from the Highway 16 overpass into the South Fork of Flicking River.”

As of press time, Guzman was updating his QRZ page, updating ACLog, memorizing his LOTW certificate code, replacing the electrolytic caps on an old Hallicrafters, applying for grants to buy a transceiver for his local elementary school, framing his license, and checking to see if a frequency was in use.

    We know the type. Never met a committee assignment they didn’t like. Flaunt their proficiency with Pig Latin Morse Code. Lean, hungry, like Kung-Fu fighting, just a little bit frightening, There’s one in every club, but not for long. Get them. Get them and their little dogs too.

    Hello, This also SOUNDS LIKE THE TOCCOA GA , K4TARS 145.250 GROUP HERE IN TOCCOA GA I WAS THE SAME WAY AND ALL THE SOBS FROM THE CLUB DONE ME THE SAME WAY BECAUSE THEY DID NOT WANT ME TO MAKE THEM LOOK BAD AND THEY WANTED ALL THE GLORY FOR THEM SELFS. ITS A SHAME THAT MORE AND MORE CLUBS ARE DOING THIS. AND ALSO FROM WHAT I CAN SEE AND BEEN AND HEAR, IT ALL COMES FROM GOVT EMPLOYEEES THAT USE HAM RADIO REPEATERS AND OPER TO BETTER THERE SELFS AND THERE JOBS. AFTER ALL WHEN DO HAM RADIO OPER’S AND A.R.E.S MEMBERS GET PAID FROM DOING RADIO WORK? WHEN ITS A VOLUNTEER HOBBY…

    Nothing worse than some kid interrupting a proper ham club’s schedule of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, picnics, coffee meetings, and potlucks with this techobabble nonsense.

      I got to say it sounds like our spoon and fork club.We have a couple who think if they do not have the say so and if it isn’t their idea they are all against it.We have members whom have joined to see what ham radio is all about but wind up discouraged when nobody wants to get off their dead ass and do anything but eat.

      I hope by those getting their just dessert things will improve with a few new additions that are eager too explore new things and get involved with the community!!!

    And they complain about the hobby dying. The old fuddy duds are making it die by treating the new HAMs with this type of disrespect.

    The saddest thing here is that in many of the comment on this site, people aren’t understanding that this site is saterical. Like the Onion of Amateur news. Im seriously surprised by the cluelessness. Yikes!

  • James you know who

    Well, you should expect that from a bunch of old guys that probably don’t know a saterical site from a real news gathering site like Fox News or (forbide me from posting it) CNN!!

    The previous pesters ( err..posters) probably do rely on ‘the onion’ and the Huffington Post for their daily fills. They probably even have stated to rely on that new ham, Brian Williams to get the most reliable news that mankind has ever come across since Donald Duck and Al Bundy.
