  1. My countys (Madison) take on this is it covers handguns, I don't read it that way. Also violation of this statute is a felony.

    I don"t believe the Outback in Jackson has had a sign in years, if it does it is well hidden.

    Wanted: (New) Ammo Cans

    I bought a few of the camo'd 50 cal cans at tsc in Milan after Christmas on sale for $7.99. China made but looked and felt like the mil versions.

    sale-or-trade Kenwood TM-742A

    Sorry, 432 is not one of my vices. Good luck on selling it and the Kenwood.

    sale-or-trade Kenwood TM-742A

    I guess mine is more of a wish than a need, the 220 machine here gets almost no use and I have a portable. It always seemed a shame to have the third slot of the radio empty. Are you hinting that you will break up the radio by selling the module. I have no need for another radio, I have a lot more than I can use. I have had other 742 radios but never one with the 220 band.

    One of the best older rigs you can find, I wish I had a 220 module for mine.

    I ordered this last night, got a confirmation of the order and a ship date of 3-5 days. Received a notice of cancellation today stating that the supplier could not deliver the backorder. I guess they are living up to their reputation.
  8. Yes, the Baofengs can be programmed for receive only with the software (memory channels). They will still transmit in VFO mode if a frequency is entered even if locked out via the programmed memories.

    My 1989 k5 Blazer had the same issue. Problem was rust in the auto mechanism from water entering. I removed the locking parts, cleaned and relubed. It has worked fine ever since.

    What is wrong with my dog?

    It looks like the same condition my dog has. The Vet says it is an allergy. We had him tested and he is now taking allergy shots. Be prepared to spend some serious money if that turns out to be the case and you decide to have her  treated. My dog showed to be highly allergic to mulberry trees, some grasses  and other stuff to a lesser extent.
  11. I saw my first live one last week when I let the dog out at night. Those rascals can run pretty fast with a large dog after them.

    How many ham operators here

    The drivers in windows 7 would not work but I loaded an older version for programming purposes and had no issues. Apparently the the US chip maker tried to make it more difficult for the Chinese ripoffs in the offshore built usb to serial cables. Yours could be different .
  13. Does anybody have any info or recommendations on this shop, I am interested in using them if I can get a good feeling about them.

    Likely your programming problem on the Baofeng radios is the driver for the chip in the cable. The counterfit Prolific chip in the chinese cables will not work with the latest drivers. They work fine using an older driver. I don't remember the version offhand, maybe 5.0. I had the same problems at first. Lots of good info on the web.   Extra class ham here,  40+ years in ham radio.
  15. I see a web page for Deans Gun Restorations in Jacksboro Tn, and have seen recomendations on CMP forums. I have been considering having mine rebarreled for some time.   I wonder if anyone has had any experience with this shop.
