• 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:

I passes the Tech exam this morning, I only missed one. They asked if I wanted to try for the General, so I took it too. I failed by two questions, but they told me that it was a good first try. I knew I wouldn't make General, I hadn't prepped for it at all. However, since I passed Element 2, I've accomplished my goal for today.

I'll probably study for the General in Feb, after my EMT final and state exam in January. I may also shoot for Extra next Spring, but I've got a lot of studying to do before then.

I do have one question though about vanity call signs. If a call sign shows up as "Cancelled" from several years ago, is it probably available?

Waiting for my call sign to show up in the ULS,
Doug

Everything you will ever need to know about vanity callsigns... I used this site to zero in on a few I liked and ended up getting the one I wanted. You can even figure out down to the exact day that it will be granted and keep track of the process.
