What really burns me is that the staff after chastising me, had the gall to say that horse excrement was a better fertilizer for antenna farms than excrement of the bovine persuasion!
I mean, who does that? Really!? :o

Lol...Made a nice test of the forums functions didn't it... :grin:
I have not yet modified the default terms of service.
There is no word filter currently in place. Hopefully that won't be necessary for a while.......

I have been accused of many things. Having built in filters isn't one. Should be fun! :Eyes_On_Fire:

I use a 285 ft. horizontal loop for 80 - 6 meters. I also have a 5/8 mag mount whip for 2 meters on the top of my chimney (it's covered with steel flashing and makes a good ground plane) about 35 ft. up. I have a rotatable homebrew 6 meter Moxon beam and a 2 meter / 440 mhz yagi mounted in the attic. I live in a 2 story house so it works reasonable well. It's effectively about 30 feet high. I operate very little vhf / uhf anymore but have all mode capability there.

Not really any models around here yet, I'm not all that attractive, I prefer Blondes though if you want to send one my way...Oh you meant the Board :Angry:

Basically,
1 use common sense.
2 Have Fun..
3 Be Civil, ( Discussion is fine, No Personal attacks)
4 If there are any doubts, see rule #1

I have been on Boards that, start to take on a fun atmosphere, Things start to go a little too far with the personal attacks, The Ban Hammer Falls Heavily, and the rest are left afraid to post for several days.

Then again there are Boards that allow personal attacks as long as they conform to the Administrations Beliefs / Personal agenda. Have had plenty of people Register, But never come back after being gang raped repeatedly by the board elitists. Then the few people that do come back on a regular basis (The loyal Attack Dogs that remain) wonder why they are the only ones there, And the Board is all but dead....

We'll Play it by ear, and see where it leads us.
