The Noise Blankers: Running Loose on the Interwebz
I am always on the lookout for great ham radio information on the internet. I haven’t found any lately but I did come across The Noise Blankers radio group web site. It was difficult to tell if these guys are really serious or not but they do have an Official FCC Club Callsign (KF5TQF) so they must be legit. Who I am to disagree with this endorsement from the Federal Government?
The mission statement of the club is:
- Do radio stuff.
- Have fun doing it.
- Show people just how fun it is.
This mission statement is very much in harmony with The Universal Purpose of Amateur Radio, so that is a good sign!
I see that the club has posted cutting-edge reports about a West Virginia ham who bought his wife an Alpha amp for Valentines Day, a Michigan man that declared himself to be a new DXCC entity and the problem causing the Logbook of The World backup. Check their website frequently for more exciting ham radio news.
I have been unable to confirm the rumor that this group is a renegade element of the Lost Island DX Society (LIDS), still presumed to be missing somewhere in the Chihuahuan Desert.

I am guessing that this is an amateur radio parody website. An “Onion News” version of ham radio. A “Daily Caller” reporting of activities on the amateur spectrum.
