A friend has sent me this account. No names are mentioned, but it needs bearing in mind especially if you are considering joining this club. I have published this as I think this sort of shit needs bringing to peoples attention.
I will print the account as it was sent to me and I may make a few comments at the bottom.
Please Note a further Update from the Author of this page has now been added to the bottom of the Authors post.
The Post author is unwilling to let this go and judging by the way he has been treated I do not blame him.
Certain folk from that groups have attempted many times to tarnish his reputation by flinging loads of mud hoping some of it will stick. Mainly to cover up their own shortcomings in my opinion. Well now some of that mud has stuck, but not to the intended victim, to the club doing the mud flinging instead.
Ham Radio and Bullying (Don’t Stand for It)
I was a member of a radio club in Leicester (Which I nicknamed “Leicester Backstabber’s Society”). I was constantly bullied for years by a couple of members at this club, who think they own it.
One member in-particular has constantly bulled me and it came to the final straw when he grabbed me and started to frog march me down the path at the club, but I turned around and went up to the kitchen window and sat down on a chair outside of it, he followed me and bent over grabbing the pipe that I smoke and snapped it in half and then while laughing gave it back to me in two pieces.
The club called a meeting and I have been told they will not have me back at the club yet the person that snapped my pipe is allowed to continue as a member.
During this meeting the chairman stated that I had telephoned the RSGB and made threats and used loads of foul language and that the RSGB’s Regional Rep had personally heard the said recording. Upon hearing this I called the RSGB General Manager who informed me they do not record calls, he said he would look into it and later that day telephoned me to state that the Regional Rep had not got a clue what I was on about.
I have sent the Leicester club a letter explaining this and that I would like a apology for the slanderous comments but they have not even acknowledged the mail let alone apologized.
This person has a very bad reputation (Or so I am informed by quite a lot of the club members) yet he is allowed to carry on bullying.
