    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:

What model SWAN is that up on the top shelf?
My first HF rig was a Swan 500CX back in the
late 80's. I loved that radio except for the drift
on 10 meters.

Hi NEXAS and Steve, yes sir that is a old Swan 500CX, that rig done a great job for me other than the usual drifting. And thank you sir for saying my shack looked alright, theres been a few changes since I took that picture the Swan got sold and the Kenwood was sold. At the moment Im running a Icom 746 in the house and a Yaesu FT-840 in the mobile. Antennas I have a Force 12 5 band 7 element beam up 60 foot and a Cushcraft 13B2 beam for 2 meter and a Cushcraft 5 element 6 meter beam up 60 foot. Then I have 2 towers up 50 foot 300 feet apart with a Carolina Windom 160 stretched between them. It does a real nice job for me. Thanks again fellows and thanks for the welcoming.
