• 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:

Yes. Sometimes turns in a burger eating contest.
We have a midnight chili tradition in our club during Field Day.
And in past years, there's a fair amount of "rooster calls" just about daybreak.

Good luck to Border City and Sun Parlour.

Field Day is a non-contest contest that is an emergency operations drill, that is run like a contest, but is not a contest because no awards are given out. Our club in the past has treated it like a contest, because of the guy who headed it up is a contester, and was out to win. As a result we often where in the top 10 (closer to top 5) of all 2A nation wide. He has bowed out now due to health problems, and we have gotten away from the "contesting" part. This year due to other problems at our site we will operate as K0GQ, 1A MO. While we may not be the power house we used to be, I hope it will still be fun. "See" you on the air, 73 and QRZ.
