• 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:

Hi, I am testing at the end of this month.

Meanwhile, I picked up a Yaesu vx-7r at a garage sale and I am eager to learn the tool .

I learn better at being shown hands on vs. out of a manual...especially the Yaesu Manual.

Any vx-7r Tutors out there interested in making a few bucks?

Please contact me.

Thanks,

David

David,

Best bet is going to Ham Radio Outlet in Atlanta nice group of guys that work there especially Mark & Josh. They have a big selection of radios, antennas and etc.

Hi N4cya,

HRO are great folks...agreed.

None new the Yaesu vx-7r as a user the day I was there.

I'd like to have someone demonstrate the radio who knows it well and to tutor me before license testing.

Thanks again for the suggestion. I'll ask for those two people specifically and see what they say.

Unfortunately, some of the new guys working there only know the newer D-Star radios. Or, only HF.
If you go back to HRO, ask for David, AI4XL. He'll give you the help.

The land of broken calculators.
I'm nowhere near there but another idea is to go to a club meeting and I'm sure you'll get some help there. I did pass the word on to someone who is sort of in that area and they said they would reply to the thread but they might be tied up due to the weather conditions and their profession.
