I am not obsessing. This is a discussion is all.
Your statements stand on their own.  Normal people don't think beach goers flying RC planes are taking pictures into their windows.

And they don't plan to intentionally violate federal requlations they are intimately familiar with risking serious monetary and criminal charges.  

They don't threaten foreign visitors with death by lynching.

**Next time you have a problem with fliers, call the police.  Let them handle it.

Well  Huh

 I have no inside track with Baofeng , so reasoning ?

  Counterfeiting as they apparently claim , or disassociating from earlier products , or ?

For me the issue is the company seems to be more interested in packaging than actually making real improvements ..

I mean , just how many UV-5? do we need , its almost a fashion accessory .

 I would love to see a updated UV-5r ..  One that has actually been electronically improved with improved firmware ...

I know , the GT3 MK2

 But for the price of the GT3 , Im looking else where ...
 The $75 to $100 price bracket has a few interesting radios to chose from ..
Main problem is sorting the chaff from the facts ..

Still cant find a decent Puxing PC-UV9R review ...  ( @ $76USD shipped its more interesting than a GT3 )

This poor guy reading all this advice. I was surprised anyone would suggest my basic advice was overkill. When you share volts and amps on a circuit to its max limit, you will eventually suffer a wattage drop related to high demand. This will decrease the function of the equipment placing the demand on the circuit, increase thermal load or trip the breaker. Most folks with 2 nickels to rub together agree that the sub panel is the most sound way, not the only way. It allows more options later and low duty on connected circuits now.

I am not an electrician, nor do I play one on tv. This circuit combo will provide a one time solution for an enduring design.

The picture I posted of the tower at the power plant isn't exactly what I thought it was.  I have a higher resolution photo, and I can see little spikes all over the top of this.  Looks like a giant mushroom with hair.  So what is it, a giant porcupine ball, or just something to catch the strikes before they hit the lights at the top of the tower?

-If someone is using an radio control aircraft to take pictures in your windows, call the Police.  That is what they are for.

-Jamming ANY frequency is illegal.

-The FCC can fine you, jerk your ham license or deny renewal if you are found to be violating regulations.

-Finally, I highly doubt all these people are interested in what's going on inside your windows.  People don't come to the US from Australia and buy an RC in order to look in YOUR windows. You aren't that interesting to the rest of the world.  You are being grumpy and paranoid. You

Taking pictures of the beach scenery, neighborhood, or your back yard, from outside your property is not trespassing and not a violation of your privacy.  Are you violating your neighbors' privacy by looking into their back yard from your second floor window?  

-Unless a radio control aircraft with a camera is at low altitude, like less than 50 feet,  and obviously looking in your windows, forget about it.  You don't own the airspace over your property.

-Calm down. Quit obsessing over what other people are doing.  Go into the shack and make some contacts!

Okay, this is admittedly a pet peeve of mine.

Why do so many hams insist on using the term "73's"?  It's completely INcorrect!

The term "73" is ALREADY plural.  It means "best regards".  So when someone says "73's" he's actually saying something like "bestest regardses".

Let's keep ham radio terms historically correct.


Oh, not again.

So Hiram Percy Maxim was not "historically" correct?
See bottom right of his QSL card.
