I guess to them it was funny but to me it approaches the level of humor 
that I have heard on that other band.  Speaking of that bunch on 3.895, 
have they disbursed to some degree.  I note the group on 78 seems to 
have moved or died.

Now I only hear one or two on those frequencies and one member will have 
wideband audio ringing the filters in his radio followed by a big amp 
that acerbates the crap.
