This right here is a perfect example of what's killing ham radio. You ask a perfectly legitimate question and nobody bothers to answer it. Often you get derided for asking questions in the first place. I have tried for over two years to find an answer to this very same question, and I'm still none the wiser. All you get out of old duffer hams is "because that's how we do it" or they refer you to the utterly inept and in decipherable codswallop of the official OFCOM web pages, which just as well be written in bloody hieroglyphics. I have a lot of unanswered question that I've just given up asking now, and frankly my interest in radio i9s evaporating.

This is the state of modern ham radio. If you're not already one of THEM, you stand no chance of ever becoming one. It's an Old Boy's Club for grumpy old men who spent huge money on fancy-pants equipment and yet are seemingly angry they've wasted their lives doing it. If your call sign isn't at least 40 years old they won't even speak to you.

Perhaps people who have read the post simply don't have an answer to the question. I certainly don't. Does that make me an old duffer HAM? Hardly...

Whilst we have a good userbase of 11M and HAM users, that doesn't mean we have people who would be able to answer every question posted, especially those topics outside of those two core user groups.

I am sure that if anyone felt they had the answer, or had enough knowledge to suggest where the op should look, then they would have posted by now. Perhaps eventually someone will read the op's post and will be able to answer that, sadly that day is not today.

I am sure members will help where possible, in the mean time there is a very powerful tool called 'google', which if you spend enough time and effort, will return most answers needed, albeit needing a little more effort than making a post on a web forum.

Best 73 to all, hopefully the op will find the info they need.

No.
my friend grafter, seems like you are using a very offensive tone in the reply.

Sorry, don't use these frequencies. However, quite a few of us had years of fun with WEFAX, METEO FAX etc on this thread > viewtopic.php?t=13642. But I suspect that's not exactly what you are looking for.

I estimate this took around 60 secs to 2mins to write. As you are a new member my best advice is to use the search facility, its very good. The purpose being that you try to help yourself fist, showing you have looked and found a thread that is close but no cigar maybe. Some members will even search on behalf of someone who hasn't bothered but that's not as common.

Like it or lump it there is an unwritten etiquette in life, those who endear themselves and try to take part and join in where they can, get more out than those who bemoan its not they way they want it to be. In the end you can't change something from the outside, you've gotta be in it to mould it .
Which way you go in the hobby is your choice. If all you have got to say at a few posts in is what you've posted to date I suspect you'll go on a lot of people ignore lists so just so you know that's why nobodies replying to your threads in future even if they are interesting, nobody will see them.
