• 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:

Components falling out of "Green" circuit boards!

That is too funny, but oh so true. ROHS is such a joke. I work in electronics and our company is starting to build products that meet the new standard. Using the lead free parts and solder is a real pain. It requires way more heat and it is a chore to hand solder. It is kind of like trying to solder without any flux. It is hard to inspect the quality of solder joints. I hope this come back and slaps the EU in the face for such a stupid idea. Trying to keep a very small amount of lead out of landfills, but it will create more trash in the landfills due to increased product failures. I hope the US never adopts this standard.

What does ROHS stand for? I noticed a lot of things say "ROHS compliant" now.

Sorry to be so dumb but I am an old fart. . .

From one old fart to another:

ROHS = "Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances"
