    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:

Does anyone use a handheld transceiver? I'm looking at getting one mainly because the more that I talk about putting up an antenna the more my wife is complaining. I can handle the HOA if they got mad, but I can't handle listening to my wife say "that thing is so ugly" everytime she walks outside...lol Does anyone have any brands that they suggest? I'm looking at any that will operate on 2m & 70cm with upto 5 watts because I will be traveling a lot. Thanks
