• 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:

What is wrong with the folks on 7.200 MHz? Sounds like refugees from the 70's CB era.


They’re a disgrace is what they are. But HF can be so anonymous sometimes that it’s impossible to try to find them and report them.

Nothing new there. Same old bunch of idiots that no one can do anything about due to the FCC not having the time and resources to act. Most all of them use fake/made-up call signs, if they even sign at all.

However, the last time I tuned in 3.843 or 14.313 I have not heard much, so maybe they are just polluting 7.2 now. I do know since the FCC yanked Captain Dave’s ticket, the show on 80 meters has gone away. He was one of the few who actually used his call during his shenanigans... with that said I actually liked Dave. He was mostly civil and not an out right jammer or vulgar lid like the ones on 7.2. Once he got sauced up he could get a little out of hand, but I never heard him say anything even remotely as vile on the air as the 7.2 people. He just had no love for the FCC and certain individuals in the commission who he felt wronged him...at least that’s gist I got once he got lit and started his ranting.

Anyway, yowzers old Dave where ever you are!

was listening to some whackjob on 7.180 yesterday afternoon. He was ranting about not wanting to talk to anybody who wasn't a military vet AND a college graduate. He believed that if you didn't have a college degree, you were essentially a drain on society.

That reminds me of that wacko the calls CQ on and on just saying CQ. Then after three minutes of that he will say “checking the propagation to the pacific.” When some non DX answers, he tells them to get lost.
