Re: Ham Radio Information Seminar

Anyway locals (PSC members) without kids can attend? If not, any chance of a class for older kids :-) . This sounds like something that would be worthwhile but I know nothing about the subject and would be interested in getting some base knowledge. It will depend on how many register. I suspect the...

Re: Ham Radio Information Seminar

This is a good idea. Any chance you may be willing to do a webinar on this for us not so young folks that are not in the area? I have been kicking around the idea of getting my license and have been somewhat indecisive about it because I am trying to get a better understanding of it's practical use...

Ham Radio Information Seminar

On Friday, June 29th, I along with a good friend will be giving an information seminar about ham radio. It's really a "What is Ham Radio" seminar targeting kids and their parents. It will be at PSC Shooting Club, Inc. in Friendswood from 7:00PM to approx. 8:30PM. This is a free seminar, but registra...

Re: LTC Transfer question

I recently moved across the border into Arkansas. I have updated my information and now have a non-resident Texas LTC. But since it is a non-resident type, I've found it's not honored in some states such as Colorado, Florida & S. Carolina. I've researched the licensing options in Arkansas and my op...

Re: Couple brutally attacked, robbed on Deep Ellum street

I agree with the Deep Ellum Foundation representative. It's disturbing that cars drove by and did nothing. I may start using that video in my LTC classes.

Re: ANY incidents of LTCs robbing stores?

Thanks. I was mainly interested in "store" robberies, not robberies of individuals. I just wanted to see the real-world relationship between (a) the posting of 30-06 signs and the fears of those who post them and (b) the actual probability that their fears will be realized. I still remember the con...

Re: Priorities for 2019 legislative session

The bill I have written 1) creates unlicensed-carry; 2) moves all of TPC §46.035 to §46.03; and 3) exempts LTC's from §46.03. The benefit of this approach is that it creates so-called constitutional carry while preserving a big incentive to get an LTC. The Legislature does not like unlicensed-carry...

Re: ANY incidents of LTCs robbing stores?

. . . ETA #2: For the years 2002-2015, I used Charles Cotton's report based on the DPS statistics, and it appears that Charles combines AGG ROBBERY and ROBBERY into a single statistic, "Robbery." So since there were no aggravated robbery convictions in 2016 or 2017, my stats for the 2002-2017 are c...

Re: Someone push me...

So, I have ordered the Gordon West study guide and software package along with two Baofeng UV-5R radios (I figure an HT and mobile unit for both of my vehicles in the near future) and a programming cable for them. With these items I have committed myself to a technician license, and in all honesty ...

Charles, I guess one day I'll have to upgrade to Extra. Just always told myself I wasn't going to do it till I could do the 20 WPM, even though its not required anymore.
I barely, I mean barely, got 13 wpm to get my General and Advanced. 20 wpm was out of the question!
