WB4GBI Repeaters Acceptable Use Policy

From Tim, WB4GBI : 

As of May 18, 2016, I am publishing an "Acceptable Use Policy" for all of my repeaters. I requested that the 145.47 repeater be shut down during the week of May 2nd, 2016,  while I was on vacation. Some incidents happened that were unacceptable. However, this policy has actually been several weeks in the making. Several dedicated Radio Amateur Operators have collaborated in its origination, editing, and publication. While they wish to be anonymous here, they were a huge help in making this document possible. 

You might ask...
Why is this document necessary? 

It is necessary for me to make known what I consider acceptable behavior and what is NOT acceptable. This problem is not specific to me or to East Tennessee...there are other owners and trustees who have published similar documents. In fact, one of them allowed me permission to use their wording for a portion of this document. 


You might say...
There are too many rules! 

No there are not...most of this document, frankly, is common sense. However, now there are known and published expectations for users of my repeaters. I want to remind everyone again that use of ANYONE’s repeater is the equivalent of being invited into their home. In front of their family (i.e., spouse and children). To use equipment that is purchased, installed, and maintained by the owner/trustee himself. For Free of charge. All that is asked by me (and the others who have put repeater equipment on the air) is to show some respect- use and enjoy the equipment in a family friendly and with “good amateur practice.”  I do not believe that is too much to ask. 

You are already “picking on people!”  

No, in fact as this document is published ALL USERS are getting a “clean slate.”  I would like nothing more to keep it that way for a long time. 

You are denying my right to Freedom of Speech!   

Just as it is not “free speech” to yell “fire” in a crowded theater, it is not “Free Speech” when you do so thru a repeater that has SOMEONE ELSE’s license as the repeater call sign. It is his (my) license that you are endangering. I make my living in radio, and I have multiple FCC licenses that I DO NOT want to be placed in jeopardy by someone else.

 I invite your questions, concerns, or comments at the email link below.

ALL  WB4GBI repeaters are listed on the web site:  repeaterbook.com.

 
 
 
 
 

More information about repeaters throughout the southeast can be obtained by a subscription to the Southeastern Repeater Journal

The Repeater Journal is a publication of SERA -
or better known as the South Eastern Repeater Association, 
of which WB4GBI is a proud FULL member!

 

           

All of the WB4GBI repeaters are completely open & available to serve 
the entire Amateur Radio Community!
(Occasionally, there may be a need to place a 118.8 tone on a repeater, 
due to reception problems or other outside interference, 
but this is only to eliminate reception problems - not to close a repeater!)
Thank you for stopping by this web site. 
Please enjoy these pages... and the repeaters... 
as they have been built, tuned, installed and maintained to serve everyone.
 

Special Note:
Back in early 1995 Tim had an opportunity to honor one of his mentors, George Shaver, K4HXD in a local Ham Club Newsletter.  George was the one person most responsible for taking Tim "under his wing" and showing him how much fun this hobby can be.  Tim's article was in response to George's passing, and he would like to share it with you here.
 

Ever Wonder why some repeaters just tend to "Act Up" in the dead of winter?!

I wonder why that is...
