Twitter, Facebook and the rest are where the moral cowards congregate.
Licensure means they’ve Big Daddy’s approval. Permission.

Understand that and the conundrum explains itself.


The panic over CV19 proves the above: Are there devices which allow for contact at a distance?

1). Yeah, obviously

2). Would you expect “licensed techs” to put these skills on display: a HAM swap meet, or local community where people need a venue to trade goods?

How could radio function as the substitute for close contact?

3). What radios (surmised) are Americans most likely to already own?

Given the above:
what prototype or model involving people and radios could be made to work?

“Hey, boys, lets start with HAMfest where it’s just us . . . see what we can do!” (What a laugh).


This is as plain as the nose on your face: Citizens Band is no affair of those who really aren’t citizens of this nation except in name. Require toilet paper with instructions on every sheet.

Their ministers haven’t charged them with a response.
Their local government hasn’t called for volunteers to get to work
Their institutes of higher learning don’t have professors of humanities and electrical engineering in conference.

Gee, everyone else is sitting on their ass, why shouldn’t we?

The fragile, high expense, high equipment-replacement Cell & Internet infrastructure goes down were there actually a threat of epidemic.

Look at it thru this lense. Clears things right up.


Tell yourself (IMO) that licensure rightfully means family & friends can call upon you (more than verbal advice), but one also has neighbors never met . . . and in need. Hobby today, desired skill tomorrow.

Riverman has a thread started (RAOK) to address this. Even if not from the harsh way I’ve put the problem. Put this with that.


RADIO is a tool.
What is it’s purpose?

.
I'm trackn brother, thanks for the reply...

It’s not that...Ralph is as nice as they come.

But he’s seen how threads can form a wedge and inevitably end up closed.
In no way was I trying to cause friction, I would never want to be the cause of that. I really hope no one takes the post the wrong way, like I said it was about my Twitter experience and that's all. I have a really good friend in my hometown that holds a license, he is the one that has me thinking about testing through. I don't believe in grouping people, it's a shame that a lot of folks do.

With me being a dumb cb’r I usually get along with everyone I’ve talked to except there’s some people in Illinois u will hear calling some of us dumb rednecks with no teeth or something along those lines and I just sit back and laugh at it. I’m sure the ham guys get some of that trash too. So I guess it’s everywhere lol

Glad to see you back, Ho6!

Yeah; since CB is now allowed to talk skip >legally<, I think that CB gets a bit more credibility since more Hams are using the CB now. Well; at least they are in a couple of regions That I know of in particular. Now, if they just allow an open clarifier, the CB regs would make even more sense.

So without reading the entire thread ill drop my 2¢.
From what I understand older amateur operators are still steamed about the fcc taking away 11 meter and allowing the general public to transmit on cb frequencies without any type of training or licence. Since then some amateur operators have found a whole host of other reasons to dislike "Cb'ers", some totally legitimate while others bogus.
When you start feeling like a genius remember there was a time in your life when you were learning not to shit your pants...

Indeed, I am going to start on the tests ASAP. I noticed that they are giving the exams online somewhere I need to find that YouTube video again.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
