As long as we are wishing... I wish people would delete their ads after the item is sold. Geez, you get enough spam these days... why would anyone want to keep getting people asking to buy their stuff after it has already been sold? Then to have to take the time to let the other person know it is so...

Thanks for considering different funding ideas. But I really am committed to keeping the site totally free, and simply asking that if hams like how it worked for them, to consider kicking in to help. This model has worked since 1997... can you believe it's been running now for almost SEVEN years now...

Thanks for the kudos! As far as I know, QTH.com is the most popular ham classified site (if we are not counting eBay, which really isn't a classified site anyway). :wink:

K7FF

I have it set up so that you can't keep editing your ad to move it to the top, over and over again. Yes, you can do that a few times, but then it stops, just for the very reason mentioned.

I agree with KE3GK on all: 1) People have nicknames or just prefer to be known by a different name. I know several people that go by their middle name - -they just do not like their given first name. What's the harm? 2) This is a free site and he has every right to not make donations. Sure, I'm disa...

Doesn't support site much

With all the items K7FF sells, I'm a little disappointed that in the last 4+ years, he has only made one donation ($15). This should not affect your decision to do business with him or not, I'm just sitting here paying bills and felt I had to say something. Now, before you get mad at him... I am com...

Jim, this sounds like a firewall / anti-virus problem, but I see you disabled Zone Alarm.

No, DO NOT post a picture in your ad using HTML. You are FORCING people to view your picture, even if they are not interested in your item. This is a very selfish thing to do !!!

Just buy one?

You might just want to buy a copy of the manual. Many people offer manual copies, such as W7FG http://www.w7fg.com, AA4DF http://www.aa4df.com or WB2JKJ http://www.hamradiomanuals.com. All of these people help support QTH.com by buying ad banners here.

Ok, so this isn't related to ham radio, but hey, it's my site, so I get a little leeway, right? :) I'm moving to a different house, and I cannot get cable at the new place. So, I have to get satellite. 1) any opinions on the various satellite providers??? 2) I wired many rooms in the house with RG6 ...

Computer for the Kitchen ???

I want to have a computer in the kitchen, but it has to be out of the way until needed. I'm thinking of a "flip-down" LCD monitor of some sort, plus a wireless keyboard and mouse, with a small computer hidden in a cabinet nearby. I have searched the Internet but can't seem to find any sort of "flip ...
