Art Bell w6obb, rumors

Now these are REALLY rumors, I have seen no substantiation for any of these items, though I have heard them from all over. However, they are fun! And, they might portend even more amusing things to come...

1) that artie was heard on 160 TWICE this last Monday Night.

2) that artie phoned billy w6wbj, asking that billy leave artie alone when on air, and billy’s response was to ‘blow up’.

3) that billy and art had a qso (and that Jim Watkins ki6gu, was there listening).

4) that artie was on 1.957 configuring his audio.

5) that Big Ben is setting his alarm to get up and play with artie on a secret frequency in the middle of the night.

6) that airyn bell is getting fat from eating all those baked potatoes.

Yes, folks, it looks like the long awaited action is close at hand! The players have been sizing each other up, but now it looks like everyone is taking their positions. Though off to a slow start, from the ‘high desert’, the ‘kingdom of Nye’, the game is on!

I can confirm that Art WAS on 160 last week. I was chatting with a few friends on 1982 kHz last Monday evening. One of them said Art was down on 1957 kHz, I went down there and there he was. He's been on 160 twice that I know of. Hell even Billy and Jim were there, Billy even had a very civil conversation with both Ben and Mac.

The first time I heard Art he was adjusting that excessively wide SSB signal he insists on running. You can understand everything he says when you switch to AM. The second time is when Jim and Billy visited the frequency, but for some reason Art went QRT.

"Billy even had a very civil conversation with both Ben and Mac"?

This is very disappointing to hear. What good is a civil conversation? Do we need Steve to talk to Ben and Mac to bring back the entertainment value?

Well if the truth be told Freddie Steve was on the frequency as well. When sober Steve seems to be an upstanding guy, but add alcohol and he turns into an instant asshole. If your only reason for listening to the ham bands is to hear people go on drunken diatribes that's your busyness. But even I get tired of it after a while, the shit gets old. I know Billy likes to observe these kind of conflicts but I can only take so much, I just spin the VFO knob and go somewhere else. I certainly would like to see Steve exercise some restraint when he drinks, otherwise he may drink himself to an early grave.

Spinning around the 75 meter band can provide some amusement, but with some people radios and alcohol don't mix.
