FCC's Kevin J. Martin Might Be Corrupt

A Congressional investigation has been released lambasting the big man at the FCC.

First it was Illinois with corrupt Governors. Ryan got locked up, Rezko, Blago is about to go to trial as soon as all the attorneys get done entertaining the court with piles of motions. Enter FCC boss Kevin J. Martin. A quick glance at this guys' photo tells us he is too young and inexperienced to even be close to having such a responsible position.

Maybe there will be a Congressional investigation into who got him his job (Yeah, right!)

Keep an eye on this one, it's gonna get hot!

Shortpath DX On 80 Meters

Since late last night, Europe has been active on 3.799.00 and 3.799.90 (80 Meter Phone) and everyone here in the states have been piling the call on these guys faster than butter can drip from a hot pan. Go take a listen! This is what good radio is all about!

80 Meters tends to get hot during the winter, and in this time just after the ARRL 10 Meter phone contest, the contesters only wish 10 had been open like 80 is now. Keep in mind that the sunspot activity is still at a low, so nature is being very good to us right now!The bands will definitely get much better when those sunspots become active in higher concentrations.
