    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:

Foxhunting by hams is generally done, for practice, on 2m/220 or 450 (hence the move to the amateur section), but this could be used to find sources of RFI in the VHF/UHF spectrum.

Antennas this small would be highly inefficient on HF or below, regardless of what the specs say, without some sort of matching or amplification
