I really must give credit where credit is due. This dweeb, KC5AJP, gave me the inspiration to try my hand at creating this very simple website. Thank A.J.! An employee of the Sulphur Police Department, A.J. will now become the official face of the police force he represents.
Now you may ask, how did this Mr. Potato Head looking dweeb inspire me to sit down and attack my keyboard? Well, one night I was bored and figured I'd give this guy's Facebook page a casual browse. This man had videos of his radio recording various people who regularly act up on the repeater and he was assigning my callsign to it even though he knew very well it was not me.
He had also written several entries about me claiming to be a domestic terrorist and was griping about the FBI's unwillingness to arrest me and was giving a warning that I would, one day, be the next person the FBI regretted not arresting. Also, everything about this guy's page screamed "I'm a cop". Logos of the Sulphur Police Department plastered all over the page. Almost every picture of him he's in some sort of a uniform. Almost every entry he made mentioned his affiliation with the Sulphur Police Department. I guess it is no wonder the page disappeared so quickly after I told him I had enough of his BS and was calling his boss.
A simple phone call to his police department quickly fixed that and I found out some interesting things about Mr. Potato Head. He's not really a cop. He's an accident reconstruction technician who is currently training to be a cop. Since then, Mr. Potato Head has deleted his Facebook page and recreated it in a much less accusatory theme. Real cops do not publicly accuse citizens without PROOF!
The first time I met this guy he was KG5HUD. He asked for my email address over the air and I gave it to him. He tried to impress me with a routine that he was a fellow veteran and wanted to be the mediator that brings peace to the troubled ham community over here. I've got about as much interest in that as meeting my daughter's first date! Anyway, then he goes on this spill about how he is a Sulphur police officer and he got into Amateur Radio to provide his police department BACKUP COMMUNICATIONS. Yes, my fellow waffles, he is one of "those" people. Another whacker, surprise surprise!
Since then, KG5HUD, has become W5SPD. Take notice of the suffix! SPD amazingly resembles SPD. Sulphur Police Department. He wants everyone to KNOW he's a cop! Which brings me to the argument I had with him via email. He argued his cop buddies could use amateur radio frequencies under his license. Took me forever to convince him otherwise.
A.J. has a few cop buddies in the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Department it seems. This became evident the night I had my run in with the FCC. The deputy escort informed the FCC agent I was very well known by the Sulphur Police Department and I have an extensive arrest record with them. It's the only time I called a cop a liar to his face and told him to prove that allegation or shut up. Pansy deputy sensed he may have been misled and shut his trap. Yours truly, the awesome Bluewaffle has never been arrested in his life! A fact that is bolstered by the other fact that when I retired from the Army, I left out with a Top-Secret Security Clearance. COMSEC Custodians require that. You do not get those very easily having an "extensive arrest record".
Now, I have been home since 2016 and I can assure my fellow waffles out there I have never set foot in Sulphur, LA since I've been here. On occasion Interstate 10 takes me through that one-horse town while I am en root to Texas and I cannot remember the last time I have been pulled over. Now, who could have possibly fed this information about my "extensive arrest record" and my popularity with the Sulphur Police Department, the SPD. Oh! Can it be W5SPD? Coincidence? I think not. Seems to me the Chief of Police over in Sulphur needs to evaluate his police officers on their ability to adhere to core standards and ethics. Testing them for mental stability may be a good idea. After all, his cop wannabe hangs out with a group of people who send people to other people's house to harass them. A group who talked some out of town moron to come over here and try to destroy my property. A group that has given me and my daughter death threats and has, over the air, advocated burning down my house.
Way to represent A.J.. Your information may be sent to hamsexy.com
Update! Well my fellow waffles it appears this retarded dumbo looking puke just can't resist taking jabs at your favorite radio operator. I went to the W5BII Facebook page and noticed dumbo posted a link to a video he recorded claiming it was me and some of my buddies violating FCC rules for using illegal talk groups and encryption on the local DMR repeater and hogging up time slot 2.
First of all, I got rid of all of my DMR equipment because I now use simplex Fusion and Single Side Band when I talk to my buddies locally either on one of the VHF or UHF simplex frequencies. Usually in the six meter portion as well which filters out 99% of the hams around here from being able to locate us and interfere with us.
Second! There is no such thing as an illegal talk group! The FCC has not yet specified any rules regarding DMR talk groups. The talk groups that are being used now by the motorola network and the other network (I can't remember the name of it) are talk groups made up by the administrators of those networks and the communities that use them. They are not set in stone as rules issued by the FCC. This means if two hams want to create a code plug using any number they wish for a talk group is perfectly legal. You cannot say this is being done to purposely obscure the meaning of a transmission because any ham knows all they have to do is put their DMR radio is promiscuous mode and it can monitor the transmission in detail.
Third! AJ is the last person to talk. This club is using a code plug that has "special" talk groups and they go through great lengths to ensure that only the appropriate people get these code plugs. This group makes sure the code plug is not listed on any of their webpages and if you want it you have to get with one of them personally. This gives the appearance of purposely trying to keep their communications obscure. They should keep the code plug secret considering they are using the actual ENCRYPTION features in their code plugs.
4th! Yes! This club is using encryption. I have put my radio in promiscuous mode and I have noted every one of their crazy talk group numbers they have assigned to it and several of them are ENCRYPTED with the enhanced encryption feature. I have even heard Ken (AE5LB) refer to these talkgroups as their secret frequencies. This is VERY ILLEGAL so AJ, go ahead and draw attention to yourselves.
5th! Clogging up time slot 2? THEN USE TIME SLOT 1 YOU JACKASS! That's the appeal of DMR. There are two time slots per frequency so if there is a group of people on time slot 2 then go to time slot 1 or, even better, if you don't have it programmed, WAIT YOUR TURN! That's right! We can get on there and hog it up and put it to use because the owner of the repeater has GIVEN US PERMISSION TO DO SO! I sure hope you don't start accusing some of the nets on HF of hogging the frequency. You think it's bad with me picking on you wait until you go sniveling down there!
At 60 MPH, those ears create enough lift for takeoff.
The two photos I have posted above are screen shots from Officer AJ Powell's Facebook page. Clearly showing his disappointment that the false report to the FBI this club conspired to have filed against me did not work. THANK GOD!
The other screenshot was a video of one of the locals going nuts on the air, trying their best to appear as me, and AJ clearly posting that it was me. This is significant because this was on his webpage that represented him as a police officer. Anyone seeing this page would believe all of this nonsense just from the fact he is a cop. The page was heavy in Sulphur PD logos, pictures of him in uniform, and discussions that were intensive in law enforcement. Mainly about proposed law enforcement against me.
Here is where I messed up. I called the Sulphur PD and informed them of their officer's Facebook page and targeting of me BEFORE I thought to take screenshots. Almost as soon as I hung up the phone with the police department it hit me to screenshot this page. I was only able to catch two screenshots before the page came down. Apparently AJ Powell knew all along what he was doing is unethical and unprofessional. This man was superhuman in speed getting this content offline to cover his ass.
Here is where the Sulphur PD is messing up. They have, in their employment, a public servant who is publicly accusing a citizen of being a terrorist with absolutely no proof at all. While representing himself as a Sulphur Police Officer and appearing to be speaking on behalf of the Sulphur Police Department. This man has also fed false information to a deputy in the past by telling him I have an extensive arrest record in Sulphur, LA. I'm actually considering consulting with an attorney about what I can do about this.
What surprises me most? This officer still has a job. This police officer openly associates with a club of people that has been terrorizing a family for the last two years. Proof of his involvement is out there. The latest attempt is harassment through law enforcement. He has successfully convinced the DA to pursue me on cyberstalking charges using edited evidence that takes this entire situation out of context. That is why I have this site published. To keep things in context. Everyone of importance has the link to this website. Enjoy!
