Hall of Science evicting radio club

The Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club is putting out an SOS (Save Our Station) call for your help. We have been demonstrating amateur radio to the visiting public for over 35 years as an independent exhibit at the Hall of Science Children's Museum. The museum is undergoing a major renovation project and wants us out for good. We have started a petition that we would like you to sign and circulate in order to preserve a great ham radio asset by showing officials at the museum that you value what we do. We have logged over 10,000 contacts from our station and even if you are not in our log your help will let us continue to talk up amateur radio and create the next generation of ham radio operators.

I took and passed my CW test their in 1973. At the time they had a desk of Drake Equipment. I eventually got my own station building Sweep tube CB Liners during the 70's CB craze. (I then hit it with my band, baught some cars, lived in LA and dropped the hobby for a wile)

The hall is now run by Hindoo's, and polititions. Its nothing but a cafateria/baby sitting service for New York City. The tweeds need more space for another "workshop" where kids are handed, crayons, water paints paper tape and glue.

The tweeds and mayor are also pissed because the the old guys in the radio club (licenced by the FCC)wont "play ball" and drop the test passing scores or talk Spanish for dumb immigrint kids.
The FCC already dropped the CW WPM requirement !

Personally I wouldnt want all these brats getting hold of tranceivers jamming HF frequencys, talking to Mexico and Central America. They dont beleive in rules it would be a disaster like CB radio in 1977

The crowd in that place these days is undomesticated and more interested in carjacking and killing people on Sony play station.

I worked on the Rocket restoration project.
The day it opened nobody gave a sh*t, only NY1's Jennifer Slaw (who was clueless tripping around in heels 10 sizes to big for her feet) showed up.
Walter Cronkite, Capt. John Young (yes the astronaut) was there talking about space and rockets.
Not one of these new "Hall Teachers" knew who they, Apollo, Werner Von Braun were !!

Today EVERBODY born American anglo including the Halls director (physicist Alan Friedman) has been replaced with Tweeds.

BTW:
On paper its no longer a Science Hall but a "cultural institution" This was in exchange for a $20 million grant from Corporation aquired by their good buddy Bloomberg.

The Hall of Science was dead long ago. I wouldnt want to run a radio station and be bossed, asked to bend FCC rules by Bloomberg polititions and tweeds !
I'd rater rather pack it up sell out to those peices of sh*t.

I would like to have that Yagi and rotor on the roof !!!

Joe, were you ever involved with the SETI project?

[Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence]

-Joe said...

Very funny MORE TIN HATS PFFFFT!
Ask Art Bell or Chief Elk Breaking Wind.

Funny Story:
When ever I would get caught inside the NYS Pavillion I'd tell em:
"Art Bell sent me"

This theater manager would get so pissed and start yelling "Ahh ^#$%#$ more TIN HATS ....GET THE F_ OUT !

I seen UFO's off Montauk and Yucca Vally (dont have to search) However I beleive they are our own.

BTW to be fair its largly the clubs fault also. Out of all those ham fests those guys couldnt aquire some cool looking equipment ?

That radio club hasn’t had a "Radio Shack" since those Drakes.
Those guys have plastic little mobile transceivers "Glass CRT" stuff.
Kids wanna see dials and meters moving, lights, colors. NOT a little hand mic and radio that looks like a VCR


If they were smart they would bring back the old Drakes, Heathkits and nice old microphones. Make some classes in soldering and using multimeters. Dump that blah florescent factory lighting

That station looks like a boring office, kids are not going to be interested.
I told some of those guys this 10 years ago.
What Arrogance …..they told me "go play your guitar"

I wouldn’t be caught dead with a CRT radio receiver; I use all Collins, Drake, Heath SB I restored myself. At 15 years old I had my General and built a SB102 from scratch.

Shame on these ex CBr Techee Class hitting repeaters with Chinese built “VCRs” scanning with pushbuttons.
That’s not Ham radio !!
At least have an FT1000, scope and a R390 visable from the window.
If you hear some of these guys on the air all they do is spar "whos smarter" with each other.
Thats why those kids are not interested and the Hindoo's who run and finance the hall know it.

Those guys need to think “Herman Munster and Grampa” if they want to get kids attention.
With kids you really have to be part entertainer to grab their attention over all the other "toys" in 2009.
---Hope they wake up

My name real name is Tom Golero KC2CBA and I am the former President and Chairman of the Hall of Science Radio Club and I initiated the sos post on the top of this pile of lies and mistruths and general crap and I really love when individuals don’t have the intestinal fortitude or the balls to use their real names. Especially when they post racist ,bigoted, elitist and grossly inaccurate “information .“ In Joe’s post he not only meets all those conditions but he surpasses them with his insane, off the wall, totally idiotic and full of queens crap ranting.

Lets analyze this mad mans posting..

I see if only white people ran things the children of our great city would be better off and learn at a higher standard.

Licensed hams have never sought to have test scores lowered or to have any language other than English included in their testing requirements. I guess The Spanish Language according to you is only spoken by dumb people. I wonder if you would say that of people who say grew up in a household where Italian or Yiddish was spoken .As that would probably be ok.

For those of you not familiar with this hobby most of the all known cases of amateur radio operators prosecuted for radio violations such as jamming frequencies ( that is intentionally disrupting communications by various methods) most have been white adult men.

I see not like those nice white kids who stabbed a poor immigrant out in Suffolk County or those nice whir kids who were arrested yesterday in Staten Island for assaulting a black man and running over another young man who they thought was black but turned out to be white! Boy am I glad they come down to the museum.

What can I say we all can’t be like Joe- a bigot , a racist and a jerk

Dead a long time ago just because he Joe C left ,I think not as all the time I have on the board the club has been very active with demonstrating radio to the public ,Field Day, trips, boy scout events, free. licensing classes ,VE sessions almost monthly and host of other activities. Dead only to you.

Are you kidding me we had the latest gear we could afford as matter of fact we just installed a Dstar radio ,the very latest advancement in amateur radio technology. The equipment Joe is talking about would of course work but is antiqued but his message is it was all made in the US of A and not foreign as Joe hates anything foreign. Oh yeah ,I forgot to mention you are a xenophobe as well a dyed in the wool racist.

Joe had a supposedly good idea and nobody ran with now 10 years later he has found the perfect forum for revenge. A blog which is read and adored by other racist ,bigots ,elitist, xenophobes who can’t stand that the city is changing and they are no longer in charge.

We are all children or grandchildren of immigrants here, we stand up for the rights of immigrants here and we are largely middle class and have NEVER been in charge. And your SOS was sent to me, I assume, by a member of your club who asked me to post it to draw attention to the club's plight. I guess no good deed goes unpunished. The case could be made that the ones who can't stand that the City is changing and that they are no longer in demand is the ham radio club at the Hall of Science.

thomas golero said...

You stand up for whose rights?? Joe posted blatant racist and bigoted comments and no one stood up to him.We were never in charge and in my post I never even hinted at that all.Not wanting to be asked to leave a place you have devoted 35 years ago is not the same of some items found here which smack of out- right prejudice and racism and yes we all children of immigrants except most of what I read you better be the offspring of the white or right parents. To allow a forum for such narrow minded hatred is not same as appealing for help with a cause 180 degrees the other way.I have no beef with you but don't you think that the indivudals who answered the post before me are of the caliber you say they are won't have been appalled by Joes comments? They were not and "proves" my point.

Queens Crapper said...

What a bipolar rant. If you have been following the blog closely, you should have noticed that for more than 2 years now we have been standing up for the right of immigrant day laborer construction workers to not expect to get killed on the job (and then for the DOB and contractors to just shrug it off), the right of immigrants to not be forced to live 10 to a room and sleep in shifts, the right for everyone's kids to have a seat at a public school, the right to have reliable electrical and sewer service, which the mayor seems to think is not necessary to upgrade before sending a tsunami of additional people our way, the right to have a livable community instead of one full of absentee landlords.

And you can't say "To allow a forum for such narrow minded hatred" and then say "I have no beef with you" because is certainly sounds like you do with language like "a blog which is read and adored by other racist, bigots, elitist, xenophobes". If your beef is with Joe, then answer Joe without passing judgment on me or other commenters. The reason no one "stood up to" Joe is because not many people who read this blog are interested in a post about ham radio.

Thomas Golero said...

Bipolar -no truthful.If you and others stand for something why allow those foolish comments from Joe to be posted without rebuttal?
You cannot tell me they were not offensive and racist.I will not repond any further as all that will be attacked will be club and amateur radio instead of the fact that racist comments were and are posted in this thread that I did not start nor did any of readers object to it.I do not know nor do i dispute that you do good for causes which affect immgrants and poor people of this city but I didn't see any good coming from Joes post.As a moderator you have the right and obligation to address such outright racist rants.Thank you for time and attention.

Queens Crapper said...

Because only comments on posts older than 3 days are filtered and that's to prevent spam.

Thomas Golero said...

Sorry I'm going to break my word as upon reflection I used the wrong word in my posts.I used blog when I should have thread. I am only attacking this thread and not the entire blog and in particular Joes thread responses.I apologize if I have offended the entire blog as this was not intention but what I said about this thread I stand by.

Joe said...

"What a bipolar rant"

This is the same insanity, arrogance hierarchy that’s been going on for years with these hams. They are out of touch and destroyed the hobby.
What amazes me is that most these guys are highly educated and have $$. Yet they act like eight grade pack brats.

Tom needs to cleanup the sh*t in his own back yard before labeling people.
Apparently he hasn’t listened to Flushing’s Tommy Tube and the Motlie Crew group the lurk around 3.860 Mhz, some of those guys comments can make me choke!
