Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Hello all, I'm in humble/atascocita (NE Houston) and I have a baofeng handheld with an upgraded antenna. I scan my local repeaters, but have only heard real communications on ham day... Is this normal? I guess I need to tune in on days with scheduled chatter.
Taking my tech exam Saturday.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Re: Land survey to GPS coordinates

If your survey and land have some easy to spot items like some fencelines, buildings, driveways, etc. do this: Take your survey and scan it. Use adobe photoshop or paint to remove (make transparent) everything out of the outside of the property line, and to remove a bunch of stuff on the inside (but...

Re: Entering a “gun free zone” to stop or intervene during an active crime

Would have to find a jury in Texas that would prosecute you. If I'm on the jury, I will bring up jury nullification to my fellow jurors.

Re: Federal GFSZ Handgun AND long or just handgun

If you are licensed by the state to carry or possess any kind of gun, then you are exempt from gfsza regardless of category of gun. Chas. told me this in another post that I’m too lazy to look up now. Other than whether you’re issued a license or not other state laws related to gun carry are irrele...

Agreed with the last three comments for sure after some research. Milder is way more liberal, and Patterson over Bush for sure - Patterson wrote the chl law in '95 I believe.

Voting Thread for March 6th

Wanted to start a thread for elections tomorrow - anyone want to go over who they are voting for and why?
I don't vote straight Republican anymore (libertarians can earn my vote) so I thought some discussion might be nice. Especially go against "butter" gun rights candidates.
