• 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 upgraded to Extra today at Hamvention. Started studying in January. Hit the books pretty hard the last two weeks.

Great weather here.

Good day all in all.

Nice! Now spend money to celebrate! Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know you already have a radio, but there's that new shiny one you don't have yet with pretty lights and dials. Ahh...I see you have the 7300, time for the 7610...it's a 7300 in stereo. Remember, "Extra" means you get to spend extra money.

Congratulations on your upgrade

Congratulations! I had a wonderful time there from Thursday (orientation day) through Sunday. I got a nice "trucker's tan" on my left arm and the left side of my face, having driven a six pax golfcart all weekend! ;)

You guys did a great job, seemed very organized.
Thanks! This was my third year as a volunteer. Each year is bringing improvements in both planning and execution. It is more fun than driving bumper cars, plus I get to meet with quite a few really interesting people... :ROFLMAO:
