    The key up beep would identify kind of like the screaming eagle.

    Those can be useful when dealing with linked repeater systems

    Prime Minister’s 3 shot bang bang bang key up always gets a chuckle from me.

    Wow dude, calm down. It's all just a hobby. No wonder I got out of ham radio. You guys take things too serious.

    REALLY?? YOU start shit by saying that "hams complain about everything LOL" and when I said only the assholes on the bands YOU take offence to it? Stay out of the ham bands with the childish actions and all is well. Has NOTHING to do with being a stuffed shirt or anything else. It is called maturity and responsibility. If someone came into your house and acted like a complete idiot and pissed on the carpet would you laugh it off or throw them out and tell them to never comeback again? Perhaps THEY were just stoned or hammered and were having fun. No harm right? It was just having a fun time. Probably a good thing you got out of amateur radio as it sounds like you are too immature to fit in anywhere else than the 11m band. My philosophy is and always will be. if you don't want to be called an asshole don't act like an asshole. Simple really. The problem is that most assholes do not realize that they are in fact an asshole. Just ask one and see if they admit too it.

    The sound of the Browning Golden Eagle is a Status Symbol not an Idiot Beep that's just there because somebody wants to make noise on the band.Anybody can make noise but not everyone can have a Browning & I have owned every model they made & I found all of them overrated other than the MK IV & MK IVA & they were great AM CB's but like all of them that had SSB they SUCKED on SSB.

    A status symbol? So that means it's not annoying. Doesn't make a bunch of noise on the band either? Haha.

    Sadly I've reached the FUDD age where RB and noise toys don't entertain me like they used to.
    But.....
    I happen to know quite a few mature people on 11M....I may not be one....but I know some.

    Me too in fact I used to be one of them MANY years ago. As time went on things went down hill and I moved on. Unfortunately about five or ten years after I moved on regulations changed so that anybody that could memorize the answers to a few questions could get their ticket and a whole bunch that I tried to get away from got their tickets and showed up on the local 2m repeater carrying on in their 11m ways with the 10 codes etc. They were amazed as everybody on the repeater was all S-9 or so. Dolts had no comprehension of a repeater versus direct comms. The straw that broke the camels back was the guy that asked how to wire up his D104 to his 2m radio. A lot of them are still around. Once in a while I sit back and listen to them spew garbage that they consider antenna and propagation facts. They don't know shit. After about ten minutes I turn the dial. Total idiots is what they are. Maybe I am jaded but if that is the case I have good reason. No respectable ham uses that repeater any more. It has been dubbed the 11m CB repeater.

    I really can't say that I blame you....The problem has been and always will be the same on the air as it is in life in general....a general lack of respect for others sharing the space.

    This might be a good time to try and avoid the inevitable upcoming ham versus CBer crap. LOL
