I have been lurking under a different Yahoo email account for some time.



I just created a new Yahoo email account so I would feel better about posting messages here. I did not want my FCC license number tied to my prior Yahoo email address for security reasons as that can be linked to my name and address, but some members here want members to post it as they question whether someone is "legal" and my questions or comments will probably lead some here to believe I do not have a license.



I got my license in March 2011 but have only listened (and that very sparingly and mostly just to the weather or local police) up to now, but now want to learn more how to transmit.



I also just joined BARC.org (Boston Amateur Radio Club) but have not been to any meetings yet.



So here goes:

Did you know that your FCC License number can be traced and will display your full name and address. If the address is not correct, you are violating the FCC regulations and you FCC locense should be revoked anyway. Goto wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchLicense.jsp��and enter your FCC license number (callsign) in the search box, when the results display click on the callsign.��

You just need to give them a valid _mailing_ address (see 97.23, "Mailing address"). .If you don't want your home address in the database, a PO Box is fine.

Yes, I know that which is why I signed up with a different email address.



I guess experienced ham operators (who are used to providing their call sign and therefore their name and address and seeking the same from those with whom they communicate) are different from people who like less spam and who want some level of privacy.



There are people who like to tweet or post on Facebook what they had for breakfast and what time they brushed their teeth this morning, but I am not one of them. I would provide this info but only if asked. I don't presume to think anyone is interested other than breakfast food companies or toothpaste manufacturers.

I am a rather politically opinionated person and a member of the 48% minority and would rather feel free to continue to express my opinions under my other user name without the threats (including physical or directed at one's employer) that the PC 51% majority direct at others to try to stifle opposing views and impose their own.

I cannot recommend too highly FM101x for new hams, by Rod Dinkins

(AC6V, SK (deceased)),

now sold by Jeff Dinkins (a nephew, now AC6V). It is an easy read

and explains darned near

every concept a tech needs to be an effective communicator. You can

get a copy on Amazon

or direct from the publisher (no cut to Amazon) at ac6v.com/FM101.htm



Definitely worth the effort to acquire and read, and afterwards you

can lend it to friends who

have the same learning task.

I obviously don't mind if anyone here tracks me down. In fact I welcome it. I would love to communicate with a member here that is within receiving/repeating distance of me.



I don't have an elmer. I learned what I needed to pass the exam on my own.



The point is without my license number linked to my username you can google "Clam Diggah" as much as you want and would have a tough time finding me or stealing my ID. Could the authorities do it? Sure, but I don't care about them as they have no reason to go looking. But there are some real weirdos out there or thieves, so it is better to be safe than sorry.



I think there is a difference between the book learning necessary to pass the exam versus the practical knowledge and etiquette to actually properly use an amateur radio. That's why I have only listened not transmitted and why I joined this and an amateur radio club.

I prefer to think of it as prudent.



People here are fairly gentlemanly, but I did follow one thread in which someone was insistent on learning someone's license number under the guise of finding someone local to help him, but may have actually been to actively self-police/report his activities.



I don't intend to do anything illegal but I have been on forums where I have seen members make open physical threats because of someone voicing their political/religious opinion.



But yes, you are right. "They" are out to get me. :-)



Who are "they?" The squirrels. They think I'm nuts.

Can you come over and program my UV5R to not transmit on illegal frequencies, find and input all the repeater frequencies and their tones, and otherwise set it up for hands free operations?



I didn't think so.

Thanks for the suggestion.



I just ordered it from Amazon as I get free shipping with Prime.



I had previously bought the "latest" ARRL Operating Manual. I did not find it that helpful for the price. I should have found a used copy for much less on Alibris as most of the manual seems to be little changed from decades ago.

A classic quip from Ronald Reagan ^^^

Can you come over and program my UV5R to not transmit on illegalfrequencies, find and input all the repeater frequencies and their tones, and otherwise set it up for hands free operations?

I didn't think so.

Stop thinking. :) I could do that but I don't know where you are. I could check your IP...

I am extremely familiar with the quote which is why I said you wouldn't actually come over and help me, just like the government.



Simply terrifying.



BTW: I think he said "hep" not "help."



Anyway I think I posted my license number in my first post, so you know exactly who I am and where I am.



So you don't need to look it up: KB1VJT

The only address you need for your amateurradio license from the FCC is a mailing address where it is your burden (nottheirs), if you don���t get any mail from them. So a PO box or mail delivery toyou through a box at a UPS store or something similar is adequate, and noteveryone can look up where you live. ��

Did youknow that your FCC License number can be traced and will display your full nameand address. If the address is not correct, you are violating the FCCregulations and you FCC locense should be revoked anyway. Goto wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchLicense.jsp��andenter your FCC license number (callsign) in the search box, when the resultsdisplay click on the callsign.

�� Ihave been lurking under a different Yahoo email account for some time.



I just created a new Yahoo email account so I would feel better about postingmessages here. I did not want my FCC license number tied to my prior Yahooemail address for security reasons as that can be linked to my name andaddress, but some members here want members to post it as they question whethersomeone is "legal" and my questions or comments will probably leadsome here to believe I do not have a license.



I got my license in March 2011 but have only listened (and that very sparinglyand mostly just to the weather or local police) up to now, but now want tolearn more how to transmit.



I also just joined BARC.org(Boston Amateur Radio Club) but have not been to any meetings yet.
