Unfortunately, none of the three bad guys won the room temperature challenge!
Husband and wife defended themselves against 3 attackers and successfully stopped the threat, that's a win for the good guys.

Re: Cell Phone Location Data - Supreme Court

In general, the "conservative" justices have a tendency of voting with those giving power to the government to track or monitor the populace. This was one of my major issues with Scalia. In most cases I think he got things right with the strict interpretation of the constitution, but in these insta...

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

some radios now have the tnc built right into the radio :shock: Do any bands allow for DX (for me, over 100 miles) regardless of the solar cycle? Well. it may be considered cheating (probably don't do it contesting), but Echolink uses VOIP voice over Internet Protocol (using a cell phone, tablet, l...

They are now saying it appears to be non-terror related. Believe a battery short-circuited and exploded.

Re: Someone push me...

When bad weather does hit, I get more information from my ham radios than from TV or radio weather forecasts or reports. Chas, do HAMs pick up NOAA frequencies or would I have to purchase a "police scanner" like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00V91IN62/?coliid=I2PH2HKCICVXNQ&colid=1SMRNUOMPAMC3&ps...

Re: What Would You Do To Help

I would have no reason to go to the theater in that mall. It is an AMC theater posted 30.06/30.07, and therefore is not welcoming to me or my friends/family. Therefore I would not have been there after the mall closed. That being said, I have not found a reason for me personally to go to a mall in a...

Re: Priorities for 2019 legislative session

Simply requiring a business to assume liability in the event they prohibit licensees from carrying lawfully should solve the issue of insurance. If there is more liability on the business (and therefore on the insurance company) for prohibiting licensed carry, costs will reflect that. You may even h...

Re: We had a house fire; address question.

I would argue that your house is still your residence, even if you do not reside there for the moment. You still collect your mail there, you likely still have a homestead exemption on it. It is currently uninhabitable right now. Once that is corrected, you plan to resume occupying it. However, IANAL.

Re: Someone push me...

It sure makes my new "free" car license plate easy to remember, I can remember my name after two Whiskeys ( I don't drink, but it's funny) Apparently, you can get multiple license plates with your call sign too if you have more than one car, and get them for trailers too, I have a flatbed and a boa...
