    most people talk on ssb these days. its hard to find anybody on am. so you need a radio that has ssb. I think that traffic on SSB is purely regional. Around SoCal you are just as likely to hear someone on AM. I doubt many people would find the additional cost justified. Most of the time, you rarely hear anyone on channels other than 19... Dave_W6DPS thats very untrue. there is a lot of people on ssb. i live in oshawa on. canada, and from oshawa to west of toronto there is a number of people chatting on the on the high 30s lower side. nobody really uses am. when the skip comes in you cant even talk due to so many people trying. and side band isnt that bad on the wallet. i would rather spend a little more and be able to talk to people, rather then save a little bit of doe and and only be able to talk to truckers. i think that you may be surprised. check it out doc_phil
  2. i have thought about theses things as well. some people are messed up. i know around the toronto area somebody was putting razor blades in the parks. that is very sick, and there are sick people out there. my family worries about me going into the woods alone lol! a friend asked me what if a creep is waiting by the cache and takes you!?! i said that could be a long wait, because there is no way to know when a geocacher will come by. but you cant think like that, life is to short. just be safe, dont go on a hunt for a cache where you dont feel safe. enjoy the sights you see along the way, and just have fun.
