Don't forget to give the zombies a 5-9 signal report.
Well, civil rights aren't a problem, considering you're not a government agent. And if you were to live in Texas, you wouldn't even have to justify your actions by claiming self-defense
What it's "got to do" with ham radio is your dubious metaphor describing that set of living conditions somehow warranting a need for ham radio
Nothing! My comment was simply a response to W2JKT's inserting an irrelevant comment.
Yes I am sorry to any preppers who I may have offended with my attempt at humor.
You really need to do some research before making such comments about Texas!
My comment was not irrelevant at all. Someone incorrectly stated that it is not illegal for an unlicensed person to transmit on the ham bands in an emergency, and it clearly is.
If you want an irrelevant comment, here you go:
The oldest known goldfish lived to be 41 years old. His name was Fred.
The relevant regulations have been cited previously here contradicting your opinion.
If you can quote any reg which supports your opinion, I can't find it - can you?
The original post really had nothing to do with selling radios. Anyone can buy ham gear, and that's repeatedly acknowledged.
If you refer to my original post (#19) you'll see why this particular ad is a problem.
You're right Here is the citation :
Sec. 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:
(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41; and
(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:
(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or
(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property; and
(3) he reasonably believes that:
(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or
(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.
