K1MAN does not negotiate with black mailers or terrorists. Your
alleged successful attempt, as a representative of the Woodpecker Net
on 40 meters, to blackmail Universal Radio, is noted here with much
disgust and interest.
As did the late Walter Cronkite, KB2GSD, Fred Osterman, President of Universal Radio, has caved in on two occasions to this 2nd grade FCC
mentality blackmail: "I don't like Billy because Johnny likes Billy
and I don't like Johnny." In your case, you threatened to defame
Universal Radio if they associate with K1MAN, and Riley Hollingsworth
(currently an ARRL Vice Director, understand) apparently did not like
Glenn. Hollingsworth is an allegedly fifth rate and corrupt former
FCC lawyer who was sick on the day they taught law at law school, in
my Amateur and Professional opinion. The alleged anti K1MAN/pro ARRL
faction threatened Cronkite with "..If you are associated with K1MAN
(he did an ID for the K1MAN Bulletin Service) then we will accuse you
of being a child molester....." Cronkite folded like a cheap suit
and even wrote a letter asking the FCC to not grant the K1MAN renewal,
as they have not do so far for over four years. We will see how Ms.
Smith stacks up; so far she seems to be in lock step, but we shall
Interference to K1MAN bulletins is an alleged felony, and FCC
encouragement of this is also an alleged felony. We are building a
stack of affidavits for formal criminal charges with the U.S. Attorney
in this regard.
We understand that Universal Radio no longer offers a free book and
free shipping, and this will be so noted in due course on the
www.K1MAN.com web site, after K1MAN puts the fourth and fifth
transmitters on the air for 5 band amateur radio information bulletin
service world wide coverage.
Any further attempts to blackmail K1MAN will not be welcomed!
Blackmail is also an alleged felony!
