Protecting Our Safety

Got a new Y splitter valve for the hose today. It's for connecting two hoses to one outlet. It's a great piece of hardware. Well made. But it comes with some pretty dire warnings on the package' To prevent serious injury - 1 - Do not use for potable water. (No telling what might happen if you tried ...

Re: The pandemic will be over by May 1

I’ve always remained positive. No need to fear, panic, or riot. No vaccine, no problem. Cool that the Omicron vax will be ready in March, when me and three other people haven’t gotten Omicron . I’ll still refuse the vax because that’s my right, but feel free to get jabbed, wear a muzzle, or anythin...

Re: Scanner Question

Can't do a hard reset. That involves pressing three keys simultaneously. Of course, with the keypad locked, it can't respond to that.

Monday I'll try calling Uniden to see if they offer any kind of tech support.

Re: Add Another to the List

OK, Graham / lucky / jeff dugan / leo / deleted user 14803, let's get something straight. You can't add to my list. Start your own list.

Your list, your rules. But it really isn't proper to explain the reason for your outrage unless someone is curious enough to ask.

Re: Scanner Question

Looks like I might have to do a hard reset. I'll lose everything I've entered in the last two years.

Scanner Question

I have a Uniden BC 125 AT handheld scanner. It's all locked up. Any key I press, the display says the keyboard is locked. How can I unlock it?

Re: Another Radio

TT, I believe you have a collection. What’s your favorite radio and why? My best radio is my desktop radio at home, Palstar R30 A. I bought it over ten years ago as a retirement gift for myself. I said at the time it would be the last radio I would ever buy. Of course, it wasn't. http://www.palstar...

Looks like a good radio. Companies like Crane and Eton take pride in their products and wouldn't let their brand on a piece of junk.

Boy, I bet they are tore up over that. Most businesses crave old retirees who constantly complain and use endless coupons.

Another Radio

I said on this board just a couple of weeks ago that I have so many radios already. there is no way I can justify or rationalize getting even one more. Well, once again, I have succumbed to my weakness. Spotted a skid full of these in Home Depot for $39.95 each. It's an Eton AM, FM, Weather Radio. I...

All of the Wendy's in my area have milk, both white and chocolate. In fact, we mix the milk to make the Frosty. Do they have Frosty's there?
That was the only Wendy's I've ever been to that doesn't sell milk. That's why I added this one location to my list.
