I don't know if my previous post on this topic showed or not (I
didn't see it being sent out from the server nor were there any
replies)... but if I hadn't seen your original post, I would never
have heard about this issue. I very much appreciate your posting
it - and since it's radio related and could impact our ability to
provide an extremely valuable service to local agencies clear up
to federal level... IMO it SHOULD be brought up. It may not be
directly related to BitX radios, but it is a peripheral issue to
radios in general - and we all don't have access to decent sources
(At least this hellhole, Florida, recognizes that we DO provide a
necessary service - and others have expressed that as well.)

I just saw it as a chance to
reach several thousand hams on a subject that could impinge on
most of us. I did not realize that the group's focus was that
So, I'm done.

Why bother having a topic or moderators if its
just going to be anything that has to do with
amateur radio? It’s obvious that this is not related
to the Bitx or uBitx. Jack, why not take it to a
group where it is relevant? Sure, I can just mute
this but why have rules to keep things on topic?
Lets just post whatever we want and you can just
deal with muting all the off topic stuff.

Well, Mike, you obviously
missed the point, so there's no reason to

This has nothing to do
with Bitx... sorry
And, if you think it is, then I
want to talk about my HF antenna
that hooks up to my BITX.
Can we kill this and take it
elsewhere as this is a world wide
group and not all of us live in
California or even the US.

When this topic came up here in
Texas on the local ARRL section
mail list/reflector, I encouraged
everyone that is engaged in EmComm
to take this opportunity to reach
out to their serviced agencies and
organizations and ensure everyone
understand the needs and offerings
of each, and that the current
relationships are mutually
beneficial. To me, that is the
take-away from this story.
As a reminder, groups.io
has a facility for 'muting'
threads you are not interested in,
for anyone not interested in
following this, or any similar
conversation. The way it works is
you click on the mute link at the
bottom of the message, and any
subsequent replies to that email
thread will not be sent to you. If
someone decides to start a new
thread on the same topic, you'll
have to mute that thread as well
to stop any responses to the new

If I lived in OR or ID, I'd still
see it as a huge teapot. From a
legal precedent standpoint, I
think all hams in any state who
face similar leasing controls
should be concerned, especially
since the general public probably
doesn't see or understand what's
