• 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:

A few hours to go yet if you haven't had your radio on yet today. SSB weekend. Anybody operate? I worked 10 Q's on 40 from the car while parked in the driveway. There were some BIG signals out there this afternoon. S9 + 40 or more.

Any old timers out there that remember the pre-computer days? Paper logs and check sheets?

I dunno why, but the sweepstakes isn't my favorite contest for some reason. I usually listen on the sidelines. The bands where hopping, but I didn't jump in. I play in the VHF and up contests, mainly, and straight key night - which isn't really a contest.
