RULES FOR USE OF JIMANDLEAH'S USER CONTROLLED ONLINE TUNER:


1. PLEASE ASK FIRST BEFORE TUNING. IF YOU RECEIVE NO ANSWER AFTER APPROX. 30 SECONDS GO AHEAD AND TUNE. IF SOMEONE IS ALREADY LISTENING TO A FREQUENCY BEFORE YOU - THIS MEANS YOU HAVE UP TO 5 MINUTES BEFORE THEY CAN ASK FOR IT BACK. YOU MUST RELINQUISH CONTROL BACK AFTER 5 MINUTES IF THE PREVIOUS USER IS STILL INTERESTED. YOU CAN THEN REQUEST CONTROL AGAIN AFTER 5 MINUTES.

2. DO NOT MONOPOLIZE THE ON-LINE TUNER. NO ONE HAS ANY MORE AUTHORITY OVER THE TUNER THAN ANYONE ELSE. IF YOU DO NOT ALLOW SOMEONE ELSE TO TUNE AFTER USING IT YOURSELF FOR 5 MINUTES OR YOU TAKE CONTROL BEFORE THE 5 MINUTES, OR YOU DO NOT ALLOW SOMEONE TO TUNE TO A PARTICULAR FREUQUENCY, THEN YOU ARE MONOPOLIZING IT.

3. IF YOU WANT TO MONITOR A FREQUENCY, LET SOMEONE ELSE TUNE IT FOR UP TO 5 MINUTES AND THEN RETURN IT TO THE FREQUENCY OF YOUR CHOICE. MOST PEOPLE SIMPLY WANT TO DO QUICK CHECKS. THE TUNER COVERS 0-30 MHz AND ALSO PORTIONS OF 49-50 MHz.

4. THERE ARE 8 AVAILABLE TUNER SLOTS. DO NOT MONOPOLIZE MORE THAN ONE TUNER SLOT. THIS MEANS GOING UNDER THE SAME OR DIFFERENT NAME FROM THE SAME LOCATION.

5. ANY REPORTED FORM OR SUBSEQUENT VERIFICATION OF MONOPOLIZING IS GROUNDS FOR REMOVAL OR COMPLETE IP OR IP SUBSET BANNING. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO NOT WARN ALTHOUGH I USUALLY DO. (I HIGHLY BELIEVE IN "FIRST TIME SHAME ON YOU, SECOND TIME SHAME ON ME")

6. ALL CHAT ENTRIES, TUNER CONTROL CHANGES, AND LOG IN IP'S ARE CONSTANTLY RECORDED AND MAINTAINED FOR UP TO 1 YEAR. I HAVE NO INTEREST IN REVIEWING THEM UNLESS A COMPLAINT IS FORWARDED IN WHICH CASE THIS ALLOWS ME TO DETERMINE THE HISTORY ACCURATELY.

7. MOST OF ALL, PLEASE REALIZE THIS SYSTEM IS A SERVICE THAT IS PROVIDED FREE AND SUBSEQUENTLY SUPPORTED BY DONATIONS. THIS GIVES THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE THE MEANS OR DESIRE TO PAY FOR AN ON- LINE TUNER THE CHANCE TO USE ONE. IT ALSO TENDS TO MAKE IT FAIRLY POPULAR AND NECESSARY TO SHARE QUITE A BIT. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR TUNERS YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH HAVE ALL TO YOURSELF - PLEASE VISIT A PAID SITE SUCH AS WWW.DXTUNERS.COM. IF NOT, PLEASE SHARE AND KEEP THIS SYSTEM ORIGINAL AND FREE - JUST AS IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN.

THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND COOPERATION AND MOST OF ALL - ENJOY.
