SPEAKHAVEN, GEORGIA – A local ham radio operator, frustrated with his inability to break through the QRM on 7.200, says he won’t give up trying to “have his say in the matter.”
Nathan Brinn, who holds a General class license, says he’s been trying for weeks to join the cacophony of malicious interference on the frequency.
“I want to have my opinion heard, too, but I can’t find a millisecond of free space to transmit,” he says. “But, I don’t want to talk over someone accidentally or block someone from being heard with my long CW keydown. I’m not that kind of guy.”
Brinn says he goes to the frequency every day after work and several times on weekend afternoons after returning home from volunteering at the local homeless shelter. “I hope the operators on frequency will start to leave some space for others to join in. Until then, I’ll keep trying.”
