• 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:

My father, W0UVX just took and made his Extra tonight. He took it last month, but failed. He has been using the Gorden West CD and book, and even burned up a CD player.

So we have a new Extra -- W0UVX/AE -- congrats, dad (even though he will never read it here).

Congrats :) I'm shooting for extra sometime in the next 12 months, just to say "I did it", as I do mostly digi modes anyways.

But, it'll be nice to be able to chat with people who consider anything outside of the extra segments as dirt (One ham in particular lol)

Not only that, but I have heard a "rumor" that they might be considering to require CW as well. Part of the reason that I and my father both upgraded so quickly.

We did finally get a HF rig -- an Icom 718, and will hopefully be on the air soon, as soon as we figure out how to use it, and get our antennas up.
