• 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:

Hey everyone, save your shekels, bucks, dough, pesos, denaro, whatever, for the world's greatest swap and shop. I have been going since 1983, and I never ever get tired of the show. Scanner guys and hams alike, will find the show interesting. There are vendors that do sell scanning equipment, especially AOR. You can put your meat-hooks on some of their neat equipment, stuff you and I would kill to have! Receivers, frequency detectors, etc. It's only a 4 and half hour drive from Detroit, right down I-75. I think most lodging is sold out for the show., although a one day trip to Dayton--actually Hara Arena is in Trotwood, Ohio a 'burb of Dayton--is not all that bad to do if you leave early, you can spend all day outside or inside. The show dates this year are May 15, 16, 17 2008. For more information go to their web site at www.hamvention.org Lord willing, I will be there all three days! I go two days early. Check out my new web site: www.radiofred.wsnw.net I have a page about the HamVention.

Both the Ann Arbor Ham Club (ARROW) and the Toledo Ham Club (TMRA) run a bus from those two cities. Find the ARROW and TMRA on-line for more info. Both will drop you off and pick you up at the front door, and have plenty of room in the cargo bay for all the little goodies you pick up.

Hey, it is the Mecca for amateur radio operators. If you attend, then you can die and go to the great radio shack in the sky:)
