  • Lights POV? What kind should i get?

    I am a 18 year old junior firefighter with my local vollie department and i was looking into buying a awesome POV lightbar from Galls. (You know, the one that cost 1/3 of the combined eqaul value of my truck all together) But i am confused are lights POV legal in Alabama?? WAIT! That's a Rhetorical question because whether or not it is legal i still wanna look cool infront of my friends and the towns people by running code in my truck to the brush call that is already halfway out. or the medical where the ALS unit is already on scene... One other question. Where can i get a ham radio for a good price? also how do i get it clipped? (ya know, so it will transmit from 136-174 or 400-470) even though that is totally illegal i wanna look awesome with my dualbander toning out on our VHF frequency at the local Foodworld and still have the department down town's UHF frequency on dualwathc but wait, what the hell is a PL?? Why can i hit the repeater?! i stuck the frequency that was on my scanner's display (the one i got off scanner-masters website) in it and it still wont work! Hope you can help me out with all these questions!!!!!!! if not i might actually have to go buy a good radio, forget the lightbar, and be legal (Bummer) or better yet get the HECK out of the fire service and find something else to do...

    Then do what you should be doing- ears open mouth shut.

    Post reported as what it is- trolling.

          I think he read it right. Looks like a lame attempt at stirring the sh*t. Trolling at its finest.

              the OP supposedly is quoting another message - which is surely a troll. DRCODDMAN just by reposting it is doing nothing more than trolling just as bad as the person he (supposedly) quoted.

              DRCODDMAN's previous posts show he is a 16 year old that may or may not have gotten his GED, wonders what kind of radio he should carry, and is presently enrolled in the pre-med program at UT Martin.

              I wonder if he ever got the state to change the rules just for him so he could become an EMT.

              Funny thing about the frequency he put in his radio post, 453.300, as it is not used for FD dispatch anywhere near UT Martin.

              About the only use for a volunteer department in Alabama, another state he claims, is Anderson AL. Want to be he is not on that department?

                the top half is clearly satire, while the bottom is a rant on the condition of the fire service. I don't see this as trolling, but then again I posses basic reading skills.

                            Grow up?

                            Are you sure you're a firefighter?
