    TSG has a utility to post system specs.
    But I do not see that as easily accessible, even if I search for it.

    I'd just like to know - where is it?
    And why it's not part of the menu that I see, or am I dull and just overlooking it?

    Some new members seem to "get" it and use it right away, some do not... but I'd like to have a handy link, instead of asking "please post your make and model specifications..." etc.

    I even went back and watched the welcome video, and you'd think I would have gotten a clue there...

    Even thinking that when this stupid question is addressed, and may be the easiest to answer, I'm still going to feel like a newbie.
    It's there, I'm sure, and you'd think after all these years I'd know where it is... :rolleyes:

    The reason many post it right away is because they are prompted to when they start a new thread in any of the technical forums. When in doubt you could always click on the "Post New Thread" button and copy the link from there but it also resides on our Help pages under TSG Valuable Links. :)

    When you start a new thread in any TECH forum, the link & suggestion to use it are at the top of the post. I agree it would be useful to have a much clearer link in the help section

    Well thank you very much my friends! :)

    Tim, think I'll put that link in Favorites so perhaps I won't get frustrated next time.

    Karen and Derek, you've hit the nail on the head...new TECH threads... which is why I didn't see it when starting this...
    I don't start many new technical threads, and for me it's just as easy to write out my specs when required.
    But when trying to lend a helping hand, that TSG utility is usually a good place to start.
    Some folks know what they have, but some don't and may not be aware of how to convey that info...it saves a step.

    So in the words of of Inspector Clouseau.. this case is Sol-Ved;)

    Tim, I had to look up APCO and depending on the search engine, got really different results...
    So I'll reply by saying I have no idea what you're talking about :D

    You will find that most Law enforcement agencies have there own 10-codes.

    I have one that a lot of people do not know, 10-7A?
    Or even 10-7/11?
