    Donations Taxed

    I donated to the server fees this month, but got hit with $1.95 tax where I haven't before. I didn't think donations were taxable. And if they they are, we need to note this in the donation page.

    Uniden User Mark Overrides Legitimate Alert

    Last Thursday morning as I left for work, I got a brief 4 bar 33.792 right as I pulled out of the driveway (before the video started. There's only a couple places near where I get that kind of signal strength. As I passed one of those, and noticed he wasn't there, a User Mark I have kicked in...

    Uniden R3 and Valentine 1 Interference Testing

    I've been reluctant to make this post because I didn't want to go into the test or come out of it with any preconceived notions about the test. I have run both my Uniden R3 and my Valentine 1 separately more than together over the last year. I originally wanted to do this testing about 9 months...

    Waze and Google/Apple Maps

    About to set off on the annual dash eastward (Iowa to Pennsylvania). I used Waze exclusively on last year’s run but the year before I used Google Maps and liked the automatic rerouting suggestions when the Indiana Turnpike turned into a parking lot. I don’t feel that Waze does as good a job with...

    Uniden R3 Speed Camera Alerts Now Directional

    I’m not sure if it was both RLC and speed cameras for which we weren’t getting directional alerts, or just RLCs. I happened to be out running around verifying some local claims about speed cameras (none found of the 11 claimed (although they were moving an ugly mobile speed camera into place at...

    Possible Moon Sniff, R3

    Before I post the video, how much will Doppler shift affect a frequency? I picked up a 33.793 signal today, well behind hills and very off axis. I dropped it and picked it up again two times coming through town and finally located him the third time running 33.790 front and 33.816 back. It’s...

    Long Trip Renewed Interest

    I've been a member of the Forum for just over a year now. I grew up in Rhode Island. A neighbor, who was a ham radio operator, invited me to watch slow scan images from Voyager as is passed Jupiter, I believe. I became so interested in radio that I earned my novice license when I was 13. Not...

    Iowa Law

    I was looking around for current Iowa laws regarding radar gun calibration; to see if segments 4 or 6 are required here. If I'm reading this correctly, it appears that Iowa has made laser jammers illegal. https://www.legis.iowa.gov/law https://www.legis.iowa.gov/docs/code/321.pdf...
