BBB: How to Avoid Buying Counterfeit Event Tickets

You're excited. You've found what you think is a "great" deal on a pair of tickets to that big concert, championship tournament, or other big event. You buy the tickets, drive to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, or maybe even make the trek all the way up to Dallas. When you get to the doors of the venue, they scan your tickets. Then, like a cold slap to the face, the ticket-taker informs you that your "bargain" (or not, if you paid scalped rates) tickets are no good. In fact, they're counterfeit. Phonies. Fakes. You may ask yourself, "How could I have fallen for it, and what do I do now?" Here's some advice from the Better Business Bureau.

Anyone Can Be A Ham!

I've written several posts here about my hobby of amateur radio (aka "ham" radio). It's a hobby for anybody interested in communications (emergency and otherwise), electronics, technology, of just having fun! Age, gender, or having a disability need not keep you from getting your amateur radio license, and joining in on the fun! Take, for example, a third-grader from Lumberton, TX (near Beaumont), who recently obtained her ham license!
