• 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:

Thanks Radioreference.com!!

You guys realize that Lindsay is a computer code generated bot and not a real person right?? I mean no real live person could devote so much time and energy to this site and still maintain a life outside of the database/message boards...I am sorry I had to reveal the whole secret behind RR.com but I could not maintain being quiet any longer...being a part of teh RR.com Illuminati is not as easy as it looks :cool: I feel better now that I have been totally open with you folks! :cool:

Long Live RR.com!
Happy Monitoring!

Agree with all. This is a great site. I am not really a "web surfer". I have a few sites that I visit daily, and this is usually the first or second site I go to on an almost daily basis. Thanks to all who keep it running.

Hi all,

I too must agree, Radio Reference is to scanning what QRZ is to Amateur Radio, one of the best places to teach and be taught. Don't forget just hanging out and throwing the bull liberally salted with funny remarks.

Ah, so a fellow ham noticed this;
"You guys realize that Lindsay is a computer code generated bot and not a real person right??"

Maybe so but there is a hybrid among us, an Internet cyborg.

"I mean no real live person could devote so much time and energy to this site and still maintain a life outside of the database/message boards."

Well, Loumaag is that cyborg, a walking database with Terminator tendancies. You never know what form that T-1,000 can take, he's full of surprises when he's around.

"I am sorry I had to reveal the whole secret behind RR.com but I could not maintain being quiet any longer...being a part of teh RR.com Illuminati is not as easy as it looks."

You can say that again! The Illuminati of the contributors often goes overlooked but that's our intent, some of us are hams who don't use our callsigns as screen names. Others are communications engineers who quietly work in the background and don't show off thier skills. Yes, we the enlighened ones are just as much a part of it as administration and our task isn't easy, "Earthlings are stupid, stupid STUPID!"

Ha ha, here I can get away with it, in Plan 9 From Outer Space I got punched in the mouth.

Now what was that he said about knowledge being power? If that were the case I could just plug into you guys and not rely on JCP&L. Hmmm, could just be the beginning of Plan 10 From New Jersey which is as close to outer space as you can get without leaving your meaningless little backwater planet.

Nanu nanu, live long and prosper you insignificant semi-intelligent beings. We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when, but we'll meet again some sunny day.

Thanks again Mork, Spock and Vera.

Uh oh, a CBer who hasn't the sense to stay away from the CB forums, we are DOOMED! (;->) Doug, CB may be just a bit different down under but PLEASE, for your sake stay away from the Americans or you'll pick up some awfully bad habits. Our CBers are so poorly represented by those morons you'll surely get a bad impression if nothing else.

Having friends in Australia I came to know some very good people and learned alot about you blokes, never mind Paul Hogan and Steve Irwin. Welcome aboard and I'm sure we'll be quite eager to hear more from you. Cheers 'n beers mate, just don't start any fights with the British, we hams have to put up with enough of that on packet radio. (;->)

Edit;
Is it true what Aussies say about Queenslanders? (;->)
