Anonymouse callsign on VK6RAP

Hi all, I was out last night, when I heard "Anonymous requesting a signal report" I replied telling them 5/9, and asked them why they hadn't used their callsign. They responded with "Thanks", then another station who gave their callsign, told me, not to answer calls if they don't give their callsign...

Re: Shortwave Newbie

But it's only got a 3.5mm antenna jack, not a BNC or other, so adding a decent antenna to it will be an issue.

Re: Shortwave Newbie

I bought this unit as well (Degen DE1103), and think it's a great little unit. Only had it a few weeks, so haven't really picked up a lot.
Looking at the best way of using the 10m wire antenna in a 1st floor apartment?

Antennas for apartment balconies

Hi all, Just thinking about what options I have for my apartment in regards to antennas? Initially I'll be using just a 2m/70cm antenna, but would like to add a 10m half wave dipole later on. My balcony faces 060 deg (give or take) and is on the first floor. But I have access to a balcony on the 4th...

Yeah Yeah, well anyway.. I passed :) 23/25 correct on the multiple choice, and 100% for practical and oral.
Now just waiting for my license to be processed :)

And Dougie, if you mention the word "upgrade", I will beat you with a scanner antenna :) That goes for you too Gav!

Re: MOTOTRBO DP3400

Ok, I'm given DSD a run, and having some luck but not fully decoding the transmissions.

493.525 and 498.725 I believe are 1 channel (With the first being the repeater output)
494.050 and 498.250 being channel 2 (With being the output).

Now to just decode it..
