Hams Mad as WET HENS  HAM RADIO CARTOONS K1NSS

What's Up With AMATEUR AGITA?

Since when did hams get so touchy?

All right, a good arguement could be made that hams always had way, way more than their share of fussbudget chromosomes.

You know the type - lying in wait like some quivering Venus Flytrap, ready to snap shut on the first hapless bug of a QRP op tuning up his Altoid tin on frequency - the same parcel of kilohertz passed down from Old Man to Old Man dating back to the Magna Carta, or at least Joey Dee & The Starlighters.

Like, maybe my imagination is just running away with me, but when I hear ragchewers complaining about encroaching contesters, I detect more than a little glee at the prospect of taking world-class umbrage. At last, there's something to talk about besides gall bladders, not that there's anything wrong with operations, or even, for that matter, simple office procedures.

Flat out, it's a mystery what gets folks worked-up about any aspect of amateur radio. But we're convinced a closer look at America's angriest hams will offer what we call insightainment - and provide the basis for series of colorful brochures - and in time, perhaps better understanding of the faults of others, as well as a fuller appreciation of our fuller appreciation.

Stay tuned..

Plaid RAD AGN!

There's always a lot of speculation every year when spring's new rigs sashay down the Dayton catwalk.

And this year, all the ham fashionista flannel-mouths are talking up the classic stain-hiding qualities of plaid.

Even the brightest cadmium yellow mustard gets lost in plaid's crazyquilt shuffle of X and Y axes. Ketchup, relish, hot sauce, biscuit gravy, grape soda, today's plaid can absorb its weight in food and drink spills, something to consider when radios are operated by hungry hams.

 

 

 

 

 

By gee,  Smuttynose looks close enough to swipe with a red bandana if one were so inclined.  But right now she’s a New One for chasers from Aukland to Arkangel and  her ham T-shirt could not be more Isles of Shoals appropriate, the lightest low-key whimsy  for knocking about an oceanographic lab all summer long.

Her ham t-shirt, one of dash!discreets, don't you know.

Her QSL, SURE.

Are you the type, Slugger?

Have we got the T-Bomb shirt for you.

Whether your hamfest art of the deal is real hardline rock 'em sock 'em Shock 'n Awe or subtle Shucks n' Gee-Whiz, you may very well appreciate our frankly frank summation of the name of that tune.

Click here for our dash!discreet version, with the 'Tude toned a tad to pocket-sized.

Come on, huh?

No ham swag no place under the ionosphere with quite the same level of spark, sizzle, and good old hot damn will ya lookit THAT.

Where else but Dashtoons Mall, Cafe Press.com

 

 

 

 

All right, all right, so you hated those damn pony-winning kids.

Like Jerry Seinfeld, we're not, you know, talking about a pony per se. This is like more of a metaphorical pony, in the form of a shorter, sweeter URL for our new CHANNEL K1NSS YouTube hoohah, once we reach 100 subscribers.

Seems like a modest goal huh?

Not so fast. In the interest of full disclosure, my actual mom has yet to subscribe. But if you pitch-in, maybe between you, me and 80--something others, we'll apply some social pressure on the woman, not that that's been so terribly efficacious in the past.
