• 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:

Testing today at 1pm EST! Wish me luck!


I don't particularly want a vanity call sign, but I believe I read somewhere that you could pay an additional charge to receive one. My buddy was thinking about it, but we're both only going for technician.

Hopefully there's not much to do on Q codes... I've been looking at them the entire week hoping to memorize a bunch of more heard ones but to no avail.

Thanks a bunch guys.

Though I'm having trouble searching FCC's database. The individual who delivered the test stated that we would be on the database either wednesday or thursday. I'm just searching for my name on FCC's site.


EDIT

Scratch that, I was too impatient... :p
