      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 .

Do you need any kind of FCC license to operate a marine band radio?

For most situations, unless you are operating a radio from an inspected vessel for hire, you do not need a radio license. You will not need a station license for a pleasure boat, but will if operating a shore station. The shore station is typically not enforced unless you are in an area that is monitored by the USCG. The station license covers the radio, the radio license covers the operator of the radio. Check the FCC website for further details.

A guy on the east side of Mille Lacs got nailed for it last year or the year before.

If you have a vhf with DSC you need a license to use the DSC feature. You can get more info at DSC Info

I was wondering if and when they may crack down on some of these people. I didn't mean to infer that operating a shore station without a license was ok, sorry it looked that way.

If you want to use DSC, you don't need a "license", just an MMSI number, they are free, just sign up online.

I think a lot of people do it thinking they can get away with it. It made pretty big news in some circles when this guy got busted. I know of a house on the east side of mille lacs, about a mile off the lake, that has a vhf antenna mounted about 30 feet off the ground, don't know if he has a license for it or not ........
