>>1997773look at CB radio
>>1997773dumb idea but you can buy ham radios without a license, boomers will triangulate your position for fun so do it from a moving vehicle like the CB people if you're gonna be a fucking retard (don't be a fucking retard just pay the 10 dollars and get the license its easy)
>>1997780sorry forgot to mention i dont have a drivers, fucking test is aids. i get 80% and cant pass cause i get 80%
>>1997783>can't pass the easiest test everyone in the world passesYou should fuck around with ham without a licence. Free room and board in a government apartment is the best you're gonna do in life.
>>1997777Checked.CB radio is where all the outlaws go. Nearly everyone is running over the legal power, some even venture out of the official band from time to time. Go to CB.
>>1997773Get a CB with SSB
>>1997773Definitely broadcast with several dozen watts between 2mhz and 10mhz. Basically nobody uses that channel and absolutely nothing bad can come from creating interference on that band.Unless you consider "getting your cheeks clapped by Bubba because saying you went to federal prison for doing illegal things with crystals" to be a negative... then definitely don't do any of that.
>>1997783>Can't pass the fucking drivers testOkay, -where- are you taking your exam at? Like what nation are you in, and if you're a fellow American, what fucking state? Because here in the states, if you can't get you're driver's license, you are actually mentally retarded.
>>1997934>Basically nobody uses that channel 80, 60, and 40 meter ham bands 120, 90, 75, 60, 49, 41, and 31 meter broadcast bandsMilitary Maritime mobileVarious utility stations like WWVAnd that’s just off the top of my head. Don’t listen to this dumb fuck.
>>1997956Check your sarcasm antenna with the SWR meter there, pal.
>>1998002This being a ham radio thread it goes without saying but yeah, oops...
>>1997773can anyone check your loicence over radio?if you don't do anything stupid noone will care
>>1998022Not over radio but if you use a fake or pirated call they can look it up online to see whether or not you’re who you say you are. Depends on who you run upon as to whether you’ll just get ignored or narc’d upon.
>>1998020You in the wrong thread fren>>1997801>Nearly everyone is running over the legal powerNewegg making CB great again. >https://www.newegg.com/RM-Italy/BrandStore/ID-70000
>>1998022Ham guys are autistic and record all their contacts. They look them up in QRZ to get the grid squares or what ever they fucking log. God help you if you pick a call of a SK (dead ham) or someone known on the band. Just stick to the Chad Band. No loicense needed.
>>1998263Not wanting to cause interference and being a legal beagle is two different things fren. I break FCC regs all the time but it doesn’t hurt to be courteous.Since that other post is mine, I’m just gonna go ahead and say that there’s plenty of good used amps on the market that can be gotten for the same price as one of the RMItaly amps. Really love that old Gray 300 I got.>>1998275Can confirm
>>1998303RMI amps are fine if you don't over drive them. The problem is that over drivin them could be anything past 2-3w deadkey. So even a stock radio can be to much. Most radios need a mod to lower deakey. If you hook your peaked C29 up and hit em hard you end up sounding like OM44 across 20 channels. Which might be kinda based but most would consider it rude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBrjaLoBq0g
>>1998316To me, it’s better to be clean than loud. I’ve heard lots of loud radios but the audio was garbled so it really didn’t matter. But loud and clean? You’re gonna be at the top of the heap.
>>1998344You can be clean and loud if you can ride the edge near 100% and not go past. You need some basic equipment so get there. Most Golden Screwdriver guys don't. So they take a stock radio that is setup to do 80% and then just cut the limiter diode out creating a "loud" splatterbox.
>>1997773If you want to risk being caught. Go ahead and try. Don’t be a lazy fuck though. The test is $15 ffs and you can buy the latest test study guides online.
>>1997773in my experience hams are much more lenient when you shitpost on cw rather than voice without a license
Looking forward to seeing you on the map.
>>1998275For maximum fun, pick the call of someone whose license has been suspended.
>>1997773>>1997783if you just want to break FCC rules then illegally import a baofeng, throw on a fuckhuge antenna, and shit up the airwaves with expletives at max power on your alkie bike
>>1999001>illegally import a baofengThere are tons of the on Amazon. Are they all illegal?
>>1999010ones in country are legal, ones not in country may not be imported legally but customs probably won't check that hard
>>1999055i ordered one off of aliexpress in the last few months and it had no issues making it here, its legal to import one to use on the ham bands
>>1999100very cool and unrelated to anything mentioned in my post
>>1999101>baofengs are illegal to import now>nuh uh, I just bought one>FCC cites baofeng importer for breaking the law by importing baofengs>n-n-no, that's not the same!
>>1999097>its legal to import one to use on the ham bandsBut you need a loicence to use ham bands. No where is it legal to operate the bofag with out one.
>>1999166>Come in Tokyo!
>>1998999Use K1MAN. It will be fine.
>>1999377>But seriously, we can't let K1MAN get the nuclear codes.
>>1998993defund the FCC
>>1997773how to ham radio without license?>buy a ham radio ($100+)>listen for 5 min cause your curious>someone asks a question you know the answer to>you broadcast your stupid comment without a call sign>get chewed out by the people who know what there doing>half an hour later you get a knock on your door>FCC>Get a fine and maybe some jail time for being a retardwell done OP you just committed a felony
>>1999418Just tell them to shut the fuck up and listen to usefull qualified technicians. Stop talking. Harass until submition or wait graciously.
>>1998275nOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO This hobby is not autistic I AM NOT AUTISTIC
Don't wanna be tracked down by the FELONY KEKS? Imagine an untraceable, non identifyible setup utilising the magic of a MOON BOUNCE. Yes! The moon in your garden with this device
>>1999432Is this real or do you need a dish the size of arecibo to get a good transmit?
>>1999435Look faggot why dont you research it before you post using the illegal catpcha button
>>1999435There is an easy way for idiots like yourself.Buy a seat on a satelite with a custom backdoor or whatever you can think of. Close it before launch but have that be the public version. This is for deniability later on.Launch Satelite into fucking orbit and "oopsie is mocking everyone on earth on 2meter every 300 minutes for 15 minutes.Sound good? Thanks to 3D Printing and big shiny android tablets this is now closer than ever
If you are by chance the felony-D-A and have a bimodal reactor lying around you could launch a probe into space and have it turn into a railgun out of sight from launch in orbit to clear up orbiting 2meter distraction
Better, just release fucking "nanite" dust of sending randomly activating solar covered shitbeasts into space that blarp whenever and try to learn what blocks out most communication through neural shitstorms. You can do it OP. You are faggot, we are legion. Together we are gay
>>>1997773>Get a cb.>make dipole or groundplane antenna >go on 38LSB thinking you will redpill some boomers>end up getting bullied by some real oldfags
>licence Fuck off glownigger. I'l do what I want!
>>1999616Can I get reasonable signal from inside an apartment window in a city?
>>1999754On CB likely no. If you had a balcony you could rig something up maybe.
Can I create a radio by waving foil over a microwave?
>>1999754If you can discreetly run a cable to an upper floor or preferably a roof, you will get great reception. My antenna is on the third floor and I'm in the basement.
got a baofeng on sale long ago. What Should I be using it for other than fm radio?
>>2002612Sounding with the antenna
>>2002620>Soundingare you referring to this?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_sounding
Radio stations operating on a range of frequencies must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (Act). The only exception to this licensing requirement is for certain transmitters using or operating at a power level or mode of operation that complies with the standards established in part 15 of the Commission’s rules. The Agents measured the field strength of the signal of the station and found that it exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 μV/m at 3 meters for non-licensed devices. Thus, this station is operating in violation of section 301 of the Act.You are hereby warned that operation of radio transmitting equipment without a valid radio station authorization constitutes a violation of the Federal laws cited above and may subject the operator to severe penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial monetary fines, in remarrest action against the offending radio equipment, and criminal sanctions, including imprisonment.UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE DISCONTINUED IMMEDIATELYYou have ten (10) days from the date of this notice to respond with any evidence that you have authority to operate granted by the FCC. Your response should be sent to the address in the letterhead and reference the listed case number. Under the Privacy Act of 1974,6 we are informing you that the Commission’s staff will use all relevant material information before it to determine what, if any, enforcement action is required to ensure your compliance with FCC Rules. This will include any information that you disclose in your reply.You may contact this office if you have any questions.
>>2002670Shut up bitch
I have a HH radio and every so often Ill transmit random messages just to fuck with the boomers. Something like "Hitler did nothing wrong" or "If you were to die right now how would you feel about your life?" I dont have a license so fuck them and their stupid rules BUT I dont continually broadcast cause I know they would find and report me. What a bunch of no fun faggots.Boomer HAM fags need to die already and free up the airwaves.
>>2002828Radio is mostly boring above 30 MHz.
>>1997780Oi, you have a loicense for that radio?
102" Whip ordered. See all you queers on Ch. 38 LSB.
>>2002828>Boomer HAM fags need to die already and free up the airwaves.All that will happen when those guys die is there will be no one left to lobby for not selling the spectrum off to AT&T or some other telecom.
>>1997773You can do it, but the feds don't fuck around with fines. They fine you 10's of thousands.
>>2003381That depends on what you're doing. A first time offender who was broadcasting on ham frequencies and just making fart noises would get off with a written warning or a couple hundred dollar fine. On the other hand, running a pirate radio station in the commercial radio band and getting caught multiple times will get you big fines, as will stomping on commercial radio broadcasts or using government frequencies at all.
>>2003698not to mention the lawsuits if you play copyrighted material
Can someone redpill me on Galaxy CB's? Specifically the Galaxy DX-949. This one has the exact layout and all the options I want. I want a CB with SSB capability and an analog look and function. No gay digital shit screens. Most reviews seem to paint it in a good light but then there's the ones that say "Hurr it didn't work" although those users might just be ESL retards who don't understand how these things actually operate.Any other SSB CB's with a similar layout and operation that you guys recommend? Prefer to buy brand new over potentially sketch city used eBay radios.My Cobra 29 LX and basic bitch Uniden PRO505XL have both worked wonderfully for me with no problems and continue to do so but I'm looking to get into the SSB skip meme.https://www.amazon.ca/Galaxy-DX-949-Channel-Mobile-Radio/dp/B0002D6KEU/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
>>2002670lol he thinks the FCC is going to matter when the country collapses Venezuela style
I live in the city, but I'm thinking of getting a little radio just to fuck with the local security guards and construction workers.>*Kssh* niggers tongue my anus, over *kssh*
>>2003858Galaxy radios drift frequency too much. Personally I think they’re overrated. A lot of people like the Stryker 955. Before I got into ham, I ran a Uniden 980 on SSB. Only a stock 40 channel but was very stable on SSB. There’s always modded ham gear too.
>>2003372this. when the boomers die so does ham radio
>>1997773Wire a repeater on a remotely controlled adjustment somewhere far from you perhaps tethered with phone or something. Did a little ELINT but never with HAM and after a few VPNs and some rigging no one investigating easy meat for the FCC is going to do anything except break it and move on.
>>2004622Thanks for the input boss
>>2004667Epic troll, bro.
>>1997773Where you live?Where I live its like a wild west where nobody cares about the rules and everybody jams everybody else.
>>1999754you can turn your room into a shortwave antenna i guess.
>>2004319baofeng, scan 70cm frequencys, specifically pmr or your american pendant. get uv-5r with any 2$ nagoya antenna from ali express. will cost 25 bucks shipping included and take a month to arrive. just order now and dont fall for the fancy 8 watt version. uv-5r is the best version everything elsr is just shiny china lies. do it its fun
>>2003889The FCC matter now pre-collapse, which is when you should be learning skills you need for when SHTF.
>>2005691nooo you cant sporadically give me me on-wave in unpredictable patterns too short to track.nooo you cant harass me via moonbounce! The FCC matters, rules exist for reason otherwise nothing makes sense and wed all be retarded, bwaaaaa
>>2004622Is something like a Uniden 520 even worth it if I am just dipping my toe in the water?
>>2006738If you just want a basic CB those are fine. If you want options and features I'd spring for extra cash and get a fancier radio. I'm >>2003858.My Uniden PRO505XL is great, works just fine but it's too basic for me. I enjoy using my Cobra 29 LX a lot more.I ended up ordering a Galaxy DX 949. Feel like I'm gonna have fun listening and attempting skip.
>>2006801>>2004622>MUH DRIFTThis meme is overblown. Classic Galaxy radio's are not SMT. You can actually mod and fix them. Yes if your radio is sitting at -10F in a cold car and you warm it up to 80 you will need to adjust the clarifier as it warms up. Do the "unlock" clarifier mod and you will talk where you hear. Drifting wont be a problem. >http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/galaxy/dx949/dx949_clarifier_mod.htm>http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/galaxy/dx949/
>>2006738>Uniden 520Popular radio.

>>2007259Do lightning arresters actually work? I'd love to set up an antenna and base setup on the roof of my house but I live in a stupid high lightning prone area. Don't wanna get the ol' zap from Zeus.

>>2008779Yes, but you can't half ass the rest of the system and expect it to work.
>>2008836>>2008876How thicc of a cable we need here guys. Like a braided 1/4 inch of copper or 1/2 inch of copper for a ~30 ft roof peak to ground
>>1998275So... HAM = Reddit, CB = 4chan?
>>1998275can CB transmit data?>https://spectrum.ieee.org/geek-life/hands-on/build-a-longdistance-data-network-using-ham-radio
>>2008924Yes, though it might not be legal.
>>2007259noooooooo a nice thing
>>2008896I would use at least #8 (8 gauge).>>2008924Data transmission is legal on channel 23. But it’s supposed to be “one way” like scada and remote control.https://youtu.be/V6syTt9RcsYIn reality no one really cares what is “legal” as long as long as your not interfering or splattering across multiple channels. I have heard everything from SSTV to packet to cw on cb. When skip is in your will hear all sorts of random stuff on channel 40. I think most of it is from South America. I know slow speed morse propagation beacons are popular down there and ive heard them from time to time.
>>2002828see>>2003372its sad, it already is happening across Europe, they are commercializing everything, the government is a thirsty vampire
