Be Careful On The Air

I just heard some hams talking on our repeater here in Sumter while it was linked to every other VHF repeater in the state. They were talking about an upcoming trip out west that one of them was about to make…including flight times, when they would be leaving the house, and when they would return home. I WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST DOING THIS!!!! They are broadcasting to the world when would be a good time to break into their home and how much time they have to steal everything and vandalize the property. It is better to talk about the trip when you get back rather then advertise when the house is empty.   It’s not just hams listening…there are lots of people listening on scanners.
