Not exactly, with ham radio it's the operator who is licensed and has to transmit within their bands. If a non licensed person purchased and used this radio it would be illegal because the operator isn't licensed - as long as I stay in my bands, I'm fine. I don't thing the software let's you transmit where the radio isn't supposed to be, such as GMRS and FRS frequencies.Ah, okay. So, as illegal as the Baofengs.
Cops rarely know the law aside from traffic enforcement. I've had clients try to file reports for everything from battery to identity theft turned away from the PD and told "It's a civil matter."Just not in the car* unless a HAM radio operator, or other local license allows it. BTW, most cops don't know these things, so be prepared to quote the law that allows it.
Very weird. It isn’t located in a corner somewhere, or even worse, inside or behind a closed cabinet(this happens, people are idiots).
Another thing some of you guys may be able to help me with. My modem/router combi provided by my ISP works fine once setup properly, but it is a veritable xmas tree when it comes to flickering LEDs. With all the lights off, it’s easily enough to light up the entire room. It isn’t turnoffable (yes thats a word) in the settings, but how can I kill (or dim) the brightness? Drives me crazy when I’m trying to watch tv in a dimly lit room...
And no, putting it in a drawer or cabinet isn’t an option since that kills my wifi speed
