• 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:

Got my Tech today.

Popped up in the database a couple of hours ago and made my first contact. They were happy to hear from a rookie.

Thanks.

I was heavily into CB in the mid- to late '70's. No one I knew back then in my CB club had a Ham ticket and no one ever talked about it.

There was a lot of illegal stuff going on in CB back then. This is my first entry back into radio and I knew I did NOT want to go back to CB.

I'm going to like this. My Kenwood TH-D74A shipped today.

How do I get that AR tag on my ID header?

You have to go to your RR main profile (on the website, it’s on the top bar.) Then once you click on it, it will have a space that you can type in your call sign.

Michael,

Welcome to the ranks of Ham Radio. Congratulations on getting your Technician license. If you have any questions, there are a bunch of folks here at RR ready to provide answers. Do you have any gear yet? What are you interested in doing with Amateur Radio? It is a broad and very diverse area of communications. Here at RR, I would say we have pretty much all of the bases covered. Again, congrats on getting your ticket!

Hi Dave.

I've always been interested in DX and have been into SW and scanning for decades now. After I get a suitable base antenna squared away I would like to try DX'ing, SATCOM, and building my own antennas. Along with talking to the locals here in my area.

Thanks for the welcome fellas.
