Message From The Manager:
Greetings from North Dakota.
Most of us have opinions that we feel passionately about when it comes
to politics or religion.
There are many forums where those topics are appropriate and even
However, the World Radio Network and the World Friendship Net are
not included in those forums.
It is our desire to keep the WORLD Conference a fun place for ham
radio operators along with family and friends who may be listening.
Ham radio should be a place where we can avoid controversy and drama
and it is important that we all work together to make sure the WORLD
Conference is free of political and religious confrontation.
While I respect the right of everyone to have their own views on these
as Net Manager I must insist that those views be kept off the air
on the WORLD Conference.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. 73 for now Mike Higgins
