      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

You are supposed to license them if you use the 5 mile range. I believe that is the GMRS freq. if you don't run it on one of those channels than no you do not license them. If you run the higher power freq. you are suppose to license them wink.gif.

I thought as long as your radio is capable of GMRS, you are suppose to register them.

The packaging may say 5,10,15,or even 18 mile range, but you should try out your particular radio. I have found more GMRS radios failing to work less than 6 blocks as oppose to the multiple miles stated.

It was $75 for 3 years, but that was 2 years ago.

I think if you have a group of extended family member, you just need one license for all the units. Might have to check into this one.

Not necessary to obtain a license just to carry. You are required to be licensed in order to transmit.

Earlier this year I checked into the cost and it was still $75 for three years.

Many FRS/GMRS radios have a menu option that will allow you to disable the GMRS channels. I know my Garmin Rino does.

That's just it. Some of these laws are rather silly because for all practical purposes, it is nearly impossible to enforce them. Similar to copywrite laws regarding music CDs, etc. Even if you transmit long enough your position could be triagulated, by the time you're located, you have probably moved somewhere else.
