Audio proof of Ken Talkington accepting a check on me despite claiming they have requested I remain off their repeater through registered mail. Also, Ken acknowledges my check in later in the net as a valid check in, and Ken Talkington even calls for me REQUESTING I KEY UP ON THEIR MACHINE AND BROADCAST TRAFFIC! Again, how can they claim I'm banned? Even the FCC has informed them they can't ban me from the frequency.
About six months prior (rough estimate) to this net, this club supposedly sent me a registered letter banning me from using their repeater. However, I can say with all honesty that I have never received such letter and the fact it was sent registered I would love to see them produce the form with my signature accepting the registered letter.
Anyway, I was feeling a little mischievous when this net started around 8:01 PM and figured I'd see how they would react to me checking into their net. I fully expected Ken or one of the older gentleman to lose their minds. What happens during my check in to this 8 September 2017 net follows:
At 7:57 PM I checked into the net and Ken Talkington accepted and acknowledged the check in. Sorry but I forgot to include this part in the recording. I'll fix that later.
At 8:04 PM Ken acknowledges all the people who have checked in so far to include KC5CSG which is ME! No mention I wasn't welcomed even though they have been claiming to law enforcement they have banned me.
At 8:09 PM (About seven minutes into the recording) Ken Talkington even goes as far as call for me, invite me to key on the repeater and requested traffic from me. So, again, how am I banned from this repeater?
Am I only banned when they want me banned? If so, am I going to receive a schedule on the dates I'm banned and the dates I'm not banned?
So how can you tell law enforcement a person is banned from talking on your equipment when YOU ALLOW THE PERSON AND REQUEST THE PERSON TO USE YOUR EQUIPMENT??? This is no different than a woman allowing the husband back in the house despite the restraining order still being in effect. After all, these girly men do give me the impression of being victimized little women when they WANT TO BE SEEN AS VICTIMS AND LIKE THOSE WOMEN, THESE SNOWFLAKES SURE DO KNOW HOW TO MANIPULATE LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT. The only difference is these ladies have figure out a way to do it without showing one bit of cleavage!
I posted the remainder of the audio recording to show that no one questioned my check in, acknowledgment, and request for info FROM THE NET CONTROL Despite the claim that I was banned.
This guy is the douchebag elite! Ken Talkington (AE5LB) is the reason for the animosity that has plagued the repeater in Lake Charles, LA. For some reason, this man runs the SWLARC even though there exists a due paying club membership who are supposed to have voting privileges.
The reason Ken hated Digital Fusion:
Ken Talkington's hypocrisy:
If there was ever a digital mode the FCC needs to ban, it's DMR! For the simple fact that hams can obscure their communications in two easy ways. Obscuring your communications, deliberately, is illegal according to Part 97. Since almost all current equipment available for amateurs to use for DMR are Part 90 (Business band), they take advantage of features DMR allows that are legal to use on THOSE bands. Talk groups and encryption being the two culprits, they can be used with success to hide communications from observation. Using talk groups that are "secret" and not in other operator's code plugs effectively hides a communication. Now, you can upgrade the firmware on some of these radios to operate in promiscuous mode (sort of like a NIC on a computer) to monitor all talk groups effectively solves this problem but, most hams today are not technically proficient enough to do this.
Encryption! These radios allow fairly strong encryption to be used on them and this works! It is not as strong as the modern AES method but it's strong enough to prevent any ham from cracking the hexadecimal code that allows for billions of combinations. Due to the nature of radio communications, it would take months for a person to capture enough packet headers to crack the code.
The FCC does need to specify only certain radios, without these features, be allowed to operate on the amateur bands. The radios should not be capable of encryption and talk groups should be published or standardized for this mode be used. I've seen a lot of abuse in this area already.
This is Ken expressing his anticipation of my November court date one month BEFORE I went to my arraignment to learn of it myself! Sounds to me these guys have connections in this DA's office. Proof they're doing this to shut me down and not for justice for AJ being "victimized" by me.
Ken, in his unmatched wisdom, proclaiming Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway system for trucker and not noncommercial traffic. THE INTERSTATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM WAS BUILT FOR THE MILITARY SO THEY COULD DEPLOY QUICKLY WITHIN OUR COUNTRY! You should hear his views on disabled veterans!
No matter how tempted you may feel, please do not attempt to pull the "flaming bag of poo" trick at this QTH! That fire trap will be engulfed in flames in 5 minutes! All ken would be left with is two axles and a ham shack. You may view this awesome abode in the middle of Westlake (also known as shitville) Louisiana. Make sure to toot the horn as you drive by. Loud noises help with driving the roaches out of that tin can.
