ARRL Frequency Defense Fund - 2004

I just submitted a $20 donation to help the ARRL fight to defend Amateur Radio Frequencies (including BPL and other threats). I hope you will consider helping as well. More info at:

I also immediately deleted the ads on QTH.com, and made some reasonable attempts at blocking future postings. There were many hams that were scammed a year or two ago by some posts by a Romanian, and I am 100% sure this is the same exact person reappearing. As stated, they will probably be back. For...

WA9TGT -- yes, he is great!

I have to chime in here as well. I purchased an ICOM IC-706MKIIG from Donnie in February 2002. Like the others have said, the radio looked like it was brand new. It was packed in the original boxes and bags, as if it came directly from ICOM. The entire transaction was smooth as silk. Donnie WA9TGT i...

What is Terry's callsign? I would assume that with all that is written here on this site, in the Safe Trading Tips, that you would not go against all the advice and buy from a non-ham.

New Callbook Lookup Utility

You'll notice that now on every ad on the QTH.com Classifieds, if the callsign is from the USA, the callsign will be a hotlink to a page that pulls up their data from the FCC Callsign Database.

I hope you enjoy this utility. If you have any questions or comments, let me know.

Scott (Ka9fox), It would be beneficial if you would not provide support or make excuses for a company such as this. Hams have spent years cleaning up the airwaves.

Hi Bob. No, I certainly do not run my business like that (I'm kind of offended at the inference). I can't speak for IRSD, nor do I wish to defend them.

Hi Bill. September 22nd wasn't very long ago... give them time to look your radio over and get back to you with an estimate. If all they did was answer hams queries "Did you get it?

I think it should be clarified that the technology does NOT exist to talk to other hams via your TV. As Al said, it's via the Internet... so, it's via your computer, not your TV.
