Apology for unacceptable post

I let my temper get the best of me and responded to a controversial post in a bad way, making me just as guilty as the original poster. I wish to apologize to the entire Facer community, you deserve better from me, and I will do better in the future.

The 80-meter ham band is where all the “bad boys” of Amateur Radio hang out. Just think of it as Ham radio’s Facebook on the radio. But only in certain frequency areas.

So if you know what you are doing and have the right Rig. are you allowed to Work other Frequencies. I know it is not a Free For All.

On the low bands ham radio operators are allowed to use parts of the 160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12 and 10-meter bands. In VHF it is 60, 2, and 1.25-meters (1.25 only in the U.S.) then 70-cm and a lot of even higher frequencies than that.

MAG you should edit the Wikipedia entry for 80 Meter Band implys that 80 Meters is the only Band for North and South America.

Thanks for outlining the bands to me.

You will find that England and the greater UK has a lot of active hams. I have a low band antenna that is called a G5RV which was invented by Louis Varney (G5RV) Louis Varney G5RV - Silent Key

Amazing .

It is strange to report that the rope halyard broke the day Louis died bringing his double size G5RV aerial down to "half-mast"

I agree

I’ve always told my students that there are only two rules to follow in life. Only TWO:

  1. Be nice to people.
  2. Follow the rules.

That applies to participation here at Facer as well.
Yes, I know, there are quite a few members over in the Facer Facebook Group who need to be reminded of that.
