• 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 always thought you were supposed to get the Ham licence first and buy the radio second? I'm going to start studying for mine so I can get into transmitting, if i'm doing this backwards please let me know. :lol:

As long as you don't Transmit their is no issue having a radio before you get your ticket. Always good to listen in and see how things work in your area. I got my radio 2 weeks before I took my test and got familier with the radio and listening to the local hams chat. Then when I got my ticket I was ready to go!! :)

Nice radios by the way, simple shack but it seems to do the job!! :)

Ditto for getting the ham rig first!!! If you make the investment, then there is more impetus to pass the exam. I did this YEARS AGO when my folks bought me a monster transmitter for Christmas. It sat there only heating up my bedroom, so I passed the test so I could throw the transmit switch.

Believe me hams like it when new guys come on the repeater and have the MO down...

Yeah, getting the radio first is good incentive to pass. You picked a good one to start with. I'm thinking of getting one of those Vertex's you have as a backup. I like the large display.
