So, in other words, if you don't know how to develop film, you have no
business doing digital photography? Brilliant!

Right, That why there is CB. You don't have to know how it works you just
get on it and act stupid. We can't have ham radio be like that, we want
skill. Quality, not quantity.

I know a lot of you don't like that because it means more work, but we get
a higher quality operator.

No matter what facet of radio you enjoy, the topic is to protect it by
improving the quality of the hobbiests involved. That's why most will
agree if you know morse code, you'll be a better skilled hobbiest and
will improve your nich of the hobby and/or radio service you're
involved with. A valuable knowledge base for those of coming into the
services and hobby.

Tnx, 73 Good luck in the contest.

But at the end of the day SC, no one wants to talk to you. 10-4 good buddy?

Why talk at all? Skilled operators know CW.

Default My Take on CW - for Powerhouse

Well, I'm excited about learning code. I have been given some great
websites for practice. And I'm going to try to test in January 2007.
I don't know if I can be ready that quick - but I'm going to give it a
shot. Also, I have been encouraged by several hams to learn the
sounds as complete thoughts instead of learning just letter
recognition. A bit like learning to read, I guess - so I will try that
method. Thanks for the hints.

Who cares! CW doesn't belong in a SCANNER group. Discuss it in a

The need for CW has been waining for many years now and technology has
eliminated a need for it. Why do we still need CW? How many Hams
still use CW? SNIP


You could have fooled me. From what I see here, there are more Ham
related postings than Scanner postings. Are you jummping all over the
other folks that are posting Ham related material too? Or did you just
get up on the wrong side of the bed? I'm not new to Usenet and don't
normally post off topic material, but when I see more postings
concerning a subject not related to the newsgroup, I figure maybe folks
gyrated from scanners to Ham. So don't go preaching to me with your
****ty attitude. You could have phrased your response a bit kinder
instead of being an asshole about it. I'll lurk and see how you
personally deal with the other Ham related postings. And FWIW,
Scanners are strongly related to Ham radio, always have been and always
will be.



No offense, but I don't see the other HAM related postings... All that
off-topic crap is filtered out by my newsreader... Sorry, I didn't
mean to make you feel like I was singling you out, I just don't see the
other crap, there for I don't have a need to "deal" with it...




No offense taken. And yes, if you turn your filer off or use another
reader, you will see a flood of HAM related material here, more so than
scanners. It actually took me by surprise to see so much. I usually
try to stay on topic on Usenet but with this newsgroup, it's hard to
tell what the on topic discussion should be about. Later.

Good luck with it. We love helping people that want to good hams get a
license. That's a good point on learning CW. As you get better and
faster at it, you don't hear individual letters, you hear and your mind
memorizes the sound of whole words.

Markie will probably flame you for wanting to learn CW, but just ignore
Markie, he's a retard.

Default Looking for a manual.

Would anyone happen to have the manual for a radio shack htx-212 2 meter
rig in either pdf format or in .txt? I am blind, and need to try to figure
out how to set the pl tones on this rig. If you have one, or can point me
to a web site, that would be great. Just e-mail to this address.
Tnx.

can read this PDF.

http://www.mods.dk has both the user manual and the service manual
for this radio. You do not have to have an account to get a single
download per week.

Hi all. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who responded. I got the
manual, then got it into .txt then got a ham to look for a picture of the
rig on the net so he could tell me the button layout. I got all my pl
tones in and everything is rorking just fine. Thanks from Dana in Griffin,
Georgia. n4pge.
