Remember earlier I said ol Gary R sheets WD5FWP was one very strange bird?
Well Gary R Sheets came in and discussed how no one gets into ham radio unless they are:
3: Spent time in Prison
5: Worthless lives
He then went on to imply that people who get into HAM Radio were worthless individuals.
I was truly surprised that he would talk about himself in such a derogatory manner. Let us look at his comments and Gary.
Gary is Unemployed
Gary is “handicapped”
Gary has multiple arrest and spent time in Jail
Gary claims to be retired, from what he never explains
Gary has lived a very worthless life. See Note A.
Note A: By Gary’s own words on the radio in conversations.
He stated his father told him at the age of 29 to get a job or get the hell out of the house.
Of course this is the same father whom he also claimed died when he was a freshman in
high school. So if Gary was only a freshman in high school at age 29 you can add very stupid to his resume as well. Though this may very well explain why his high school years are so important he lives in that era.
He was also extremely upset on the radio one day and in a conversation with Tommy he was complaining about how he could not qualify for Social Security Disability as he has not worked enough in his life time to earn enough points too qualify.
