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!

A. When do all these nets become self-aware? B. I know the sky is the limit, but how hard is this on a wallet, for someone on a fixed income who doesn’t want to blow thousands on it.

Thank you for the prayers. I am surprisingly not in as much pain as I thought I would be, but I know it is because of your prayers. I have two services behind me and I have one more to go tonight.
We serve a great God my friend!

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

The School Safety Course may, note I said "may," be more popular after the 2019 Texas Legislative Session.

Do it!!!!! There's no reason not to do it and many reasons you should. I have a dual band in my car, one in my office and three HT's. (I'll be buying an Icom IC-7300 soon.) The radios in my car and office are always on unless I'm on the phone. I don't have to set aside time for the hobby, it's there...
