Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

They're not going to let facts get in their way. Just watched Nancy on live tv announcing they are proceeding on articles of impeachment. She was positively giddy as she said it.

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Rusk, TX

The steam engines are oil fired, but only one is currently operational. The diesels are used most of the time.

Re: "Nobody has ever stopped a mass-shooter..."

If nobody has ever stopped a mass shooting, then I guess those two boys at Columbine are still shooting people for twenty years now? In another words, all mass shooting have been stopped, so the title is simply incorrect.

Re: Dallas Summer Musical “Hamilton” is posted 30.06 and .07

I wonder if this has anything to do with the recent move of the city of Dallas to turn over operation of Fair Park to a private company? The city still owns the grounds. Does this mean another fight to carry at the State Fair?

Re: 22 November, 1963

I was on Harwood Street in the east end of downtown Dallas. My Mom kept us out of school just for the occasion. Still can vividly see the President with his fake tan and Jackie in her pink suit and hat. It was very exciting to get to see Kennedy in person. After he passed by, we got in the car to go...

Re: YARC NRA birthday event (Ham Radio)

I came across them on 14.250, just above the noise floor. They were pretty busy, so I went and made a couple of contacts on up the dial. Went back a while later and didn't hear them any more. Would have been a good contact to have made. 73

WTS Ruger SR1911 SOLD!

Want to sell a Ruger SR1911. Comes with the factory box, a 7 round mag, an 8 round mag, a soft carry case, and a barrel lug wrench. I've put 200 rounds down range without a hiccup. Asking $500. I'm in the DFW area and prefer a LTC holder.

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Here you go. http://www.txvhffm.org/# Move your cursor over the repeater box, click on search. Go to the County box drop down and click on Harris. Click on search and you'll see 115 repeaters. Not all are on the bands your radio covers, but a lot of them are. To listen only you won't need the PL ton...

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Sorry locke_n_load, looks like most all of Harris county police, including Houston PD and Texas DPS, operate on the Texas wide area radio network ( Txwarn), this an APCO P25 phase II trunked system and not accessible on your radio.

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

I came across the first video by K7AGE about three weeks ago and built this easy antenna. It works great! I'm in the southern part of Dallas and worked the 146.94 repeater in Ft. Worth, about 35 to 40 miles away. Got a very good signal report. I'm using my Yaesu VX 170 HT. With Radio Shack closing m...

He played the Congressman in Bullitt with Steve McQueen, too.
