    So, what if God and Superman had a fight?

    So what about kids talking to Santa Claus on the amateur radio bands?

    If it is not permitted, it's prohibited.

    I would say that talking about religion, talking about prayers, having a conversation about religion, exchanging prayer requests are all fitting of the amateur service. But an actual prayer, especially an extended length one that runs 10+ minutes, is not what the amateur service is about.

    A 10 minute long prayer is more akin to broadcasting than two way communication.

    You will find what is prohibited in ยง97.113 Prohibited transmissions.

    A prayer or any similar recitation is not on the list.

    That's how I see it too.

    So you base the whole thing on the length of the transmission? How silly. Now, of course, someone would have to interrupt things periodically to give station ID, but, other than that, what is the beef? :rolleyes:

    In many posts so far, you seem to be associating the element of "time limits" as a litmus test to determine if there's broadcasting occurring or not.

    There is no time limits for amateur radio transmissions.

    Even the Holy Bible doesn't like that type of prayer.

    Matthew 6:7-8

    7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
