qubert,

unless you are currently licensed to use a particular network's frequencies, you are not entitled to use those frequencies to call anyone (beacon, voice or otherwise).

I realise that this doesn't really help much, just letting you know that beacon calling another user rather than a network's base station doesn't get around the problem of an expired membership.

Having said all of that I don't know how anyone would ever know if you did either of these things, unless the network logs all beacon calls and compares them to current / expired members lists. Hmm, seems a bit unlikely doesn't it?

good luck

Ben

They do...... :-)

I once sold a radio to a fellow with the VKS frequencies in and he promised me he would joing the network, but began using the frequencies without joining, Guess sho got the phonecall (it did have my selcall number in it as I forgot to reprogram this) from the VKS network? Problem was sorted quick smart.

Most commercial networks log selcall numbers....even some private ones.

Cheers,

Mark
