There is also the consideration that one ham can't do a lot compared to the 'official' capability but then again, the official capability may be limited by lack of planning, resources, or intent. The events are also more enjoyable for the
Hamsexy whackers trading and if a couple of hams work together they can have a pleasurable Hamsexy whackers trading day' SHADOWING the event and in an emergency be instantly aware of the conditions and help if they desire.

No more comments may be added. Don't hang around where you're not appreciated. It makes you look pathetic and desperate. Leave these marginal events completely dark.
Anything less and you're in the way causing problems for everyone. And as far as exclusivity goes that is the how those "Hamsexy whackers trading" work, you HAVE to be a member.
An incredibly BAD idea. Do not "hang around" a scene if you are not accepted or wanted as a
Hamsexy whackers trading member. Event organizers may well interpret your presence as a security threat and alert the police.
In any case it will not enhance your reputation. I have a better idea; stay home and work DX! At the very least you'll be seen as some weirdo that nobody invited. More likely you'll been seen as a security threat and will have some explaining to do, to the police. This article seems to come from a whacker in full whackiness. I've read this
Hamsexy whackers trading times, and somehow--if it is a joke--it just doesn't come through as one.
On the other hand, the second reply just goes to show the other side of the coin--an 'official' volunteer that thinks more of an organization than of ham radio. Neither one actually represents what ham radio should really be about. But, sadly, the
Hamsexy whackers trading does represent what certain ham orginazations are trying to make ham radio become--the ARRL included.
I want no part of either. I learned a long time ago, not to stick my nose into other people's business.
I also learned discretion is the best part of valor. In other words, if I don't
Hamsexy whackers trading welcome, I get the hell out! So I went to the BLM meeting in our area where these events are monitored. Here in the desert we have a death or two a year so there is still a little concern for our fellow traveler. The local problem comes down to the organizer and their relationship with the ham radio organizer and is dependent on the quality of the event organization.
Overall it is a complex mix of legalities. A life could be saved by an observant ham if he's operating in the area. The same goes for other ham radio groups that do events. Should you venture where you are not expressly invited and things go wrong, you could find yourself in the middle of a very ugly situation.
It is best to leave the radio gear home and enjoy the event, or enjoy your radio gear elsewhere. Experience over the years is valuable. This is why it is useful to a less experienced ham to listen to the advice of a
Hamsexy whackers trading, well-intentioned older and more experienced ham. You want to see subculture,...
Elmers give good advice. This is what happens in "Full Shadowing: Even better, we'd better serve the public and the ham community by continuing to advance the state of the communications art, providing unique, cutting edge solution to technological problems. If they don't, you are exposing yourself to major risk. If I have been called out it is because all communications between the state and county are down due to some emergency situation.
Rule number one is ALL volunteers have to be approved by the EMA director and pass a background records check done by the sheriff. If you had ever been involved in this type of radio 'service' you would have known this, and not been so "Hamsexy whackers trading" to judge my feelings about our ham radio hobby and emergency service.

Do you throw dung at people collecting trash
Hamsexy whackers trading the highway, too? After all, they are taking a valuable job away from some convict who could otherwise be picking up the used diapers and empty coke bottles.
Some of us folks are so dumb, we actually volunteer to do things without being paid.
Hamsexy whackers trading Gawd, that's communism! I've sure had fun over the decades, participating in various public events.
In my experience, horse rides are a pain in the tuchus. Bike races, marathons, and
Hamsexy whackers trading are much more fun. If they don't want you, they don't want you. Give them their rope and let it be. Ham radio does work better than cell phones for these events, I am fully confident of this fact after my first bike ride.
I had a little HT and a borrowed magmount. I was placed close to the finish so the net controller could talk to me on simplex if I couldn't get to the repeater. I finished the race and the organizers came up and told us that we had saved them several serious crashes, especially the guy right by the finish line. We get instantaneous communication, they get several cells that may or may not be able to handle their traffic.
That said, let it go. Jack -- Glad you and the XYL have a good sense of humor. BTW - nice Land Cruiser! Isn't this the same guy that came up with the 'structure' for FRS with emergency channels and protocols a few years ago? You can be operating under the authority of the President--or God, for that matter--but the bands you're using are still HAM bands, not public service bands. With the push for
Hamsexy whackers trading, too much has been taken for granted.
Those agencies and their communications should have been kept in the public service bands. THAT is the point being made here. Sorry, missed that 'where'.
I hate to join the chorus of negativity, but
Hamsexy whackers trading needs to exercise some more editing and quality control. The single sentence paragraphs in this article are troublesome and the article could be made to flow better. It seems like several disparate thoughts thrown together. If I was editor I would have kicked this article back for more development.
Could someone please write a nice article about antennas or receivers or something orientated towards the technical side of Ham Radio and PLEASE leave out all this crap Im seeing on the articles about net domains and "shadowing"?
Will drop my subscription next renewal if things don't improve. I think 'shadowing' is a
Hamsexy whackers trading bad idea. If you aren't invited to play by the responsible agency, then stay away from their activity.
Otherwise you are just an unwanted whacker.

First, I have to agree with K3NG. This acticle, and the earlier article about loop antennas do not make ham radio operators look good.
Perhaps this is a wake up call for some of us myself included to submit something, eh?
You know the old adage It might possibly divert much needed resources on a "terrorist threat", and make us look like a bunch of lunatics. Why don't you just do a little research and find a club that

Yeah, he's wearing an orange vest but nobody here knows him and our people at the next event station said he was lurking around them too Guys in the emcomm side of our local radio club drive unmarked Ford Crown Victoria's.
They keep people under surveillance and do stake outs. These whackers even address one another with hokey military ranks and are quite a spectacle at parades, races, etc.
