    Hoping someone here can help me out.

    I used to have an account at P25 forums, but didn't register when it came back.
    Trying to register again, but I can't get the second question correct and I don't know why.
    This site is not for ____________

    I know this is an idiot filter, and apparently I'm an idiot since I can't remember from when I registered last time. Got a list of like 25-30 things I've tried, but obviously no go.

    If you can shoot me a message, I'd much appreciate it. I'll be glad to show you my list of what I thought were the obvious answers. I know I've got to be close, just not getting it.

    This is "" - maybe you should try asking at "P25 Forums" - or something like that? They're more likely to be able to help

    Good luck

    That'd be a great idea, except that I can't ask there because, as I already said, I can't get registered there without the secret answer.

    Figured there'd be some cross pollination between here and there; that's why I asked.

    Just for clarity, went away, then was reborn as Communications.Support a couple months later.

    To be honest I would email the website administrator and ask them for help. They may help and may not so please keep that in mind. Forums/Websites like that are bound to be issues from the forum members to others who are needing help with a radio or simple programming. I had an issue with a different forum like the one listed above the forum owner and his followers (clickish friends) made fun of me cause I was asking questions about a radio I was interested in the time before I bought it.

    There is another forum/website that is great and helpful and that is Austech forums friendly people there and some non helpful people depends on the question being asked and etc.

    Good luck!

    I work in this public safety mobile radio field as a Communication Systems Manager (35-years in comm-electronics and telecom), and took your challenge by trying to register tonight.
    Don't worry, I couldn't get by this second question either.
    I won't bother by emailing...
    Screw 'em.

    I am surprised to hear that hams are doing P25.

    Well, that was an easy one. :)

    Looks like they do this so you will read all the site rules before registering, they are very strict.

    Yes, indeed they are rather restrictive.
    Yes, indeed, I did see the site rules page, but your suggested answer is not the answer.

    Here's the list of words and phrases I've tried :
    beginners or scanner heads.
    beginners or scanner-heads
    beginners or scanner-heads.
    beginners or scanner-heads!
    beginners or scannerheads.
    interested in being spoonfed.
    non professionals
    not communications professionals.
    not professionals.
    not radio professionals.
    only interested in being spoonfed.
    scanner hobbyists or beginners
    This site is not for people who are _____________.
    So... any other suggestions?

    I assume a scanner head is the piece that goes on the dashboard of a car and talks to a device in the trunk.

    I think I saw something about trunking.
