• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Dirk? Joe they ALL talk weird, welcome to the magical land of 75M AM and the Timtron WA1 Henry Yell Arr entertaining hams and SWLs since 1965.

I met some crazy Amateurs,
They took my heart away
Tron said I had it coming to me
But I wanted it that way
I think that old Philco is a good radio
So I took what I could get
It looked at me with big green eye and said

You ain't heard nothing yet
B-B-B-Baby you just ain't heard n-n-n-nothing yet
Here's something that you're never gonna forget
B-B-B-Baby you just ain't heard n-n-n-nothing yet

The Night of the Slime-O-Tron, December 31 1969, a date that will live in INfamy...

funny talk

I'm sure it's partly my own bias, but some of the crowd on 3885 really does get dopey and infantile at times and some of them do it every time they get on the air.

But that's what makes them so entertaining! If it's OFs complaining about aches and pains, Bob's pancreas and Bill's colostomy just tune down the band a bit. Then there is the political war zone and above 3890 various rednecks cussing at each other. 75M is a zoo, everything you always wanted and some things you wish you never had. Now if you want "normal" may I suggest 11M CB?
