  1. I first posted this in June 2002 or so. I think it's time to move it back into the present. Hi Everyone! I am an Amateur Radio operator and have been licensed since 1976 and caching since Feb 2002. WB9ZHC Ginger Have any of you tried to incorporate Geocaching somehow with your local ham radio club? Like give a lecture/introduction program or had caching at the same place you are fox hunting?
  2. I have a Kenwood TH-K2. It isnt the smalled hand held in the world but I think that it is pretty powerful which is another consideration you need to keep in mind. Some of the tiniest handhelds don't always seem to get out as well. Mine is small enough and light enough to be portable but it gets out well and can hit most the repeaters I attempt even in the middle of nowhere which Geocaching sometimes finds you. WB9ZHC Ginger
  3. I think this would be kinda cool however, you would run into two problems. One being that some people would not reply to your QSL card and it would be a one way contact...number two would be that you might not want every single person who caches to have your home address. In order to protect ones self or family they would need to get a P.O. Box. I think I understood you right in that you would want these to be mailed postcards. The idea is really cool but there has to be some other way of doing this. WB9ZHC Ginger

  5. I just got an email from a friend who went caching on vacation with his father in Michigan. He attached a picture of a baby dear that was nesting not more than a few feet from the cache. He said he glanced over and saw it and it startled him at first not expecting to see a deer right there. The hurried up with the cache and went on there way the whole while it laid there very still...thinking it couldn't be seen. the picture is adorable but I don't have a url to post it too right off hand.

  7. The smell of humans had to be on that cache box already and the mother still chose to keep her baby there. As long as you did not disturb the nesting area and did not handle the bunny..He will just fine and the Mother will probably not act differently. However, if the cache is visited often, and noone actually handles the nesting materials and/or the bunny..she will choose to move it to a quieter location. All should be fine. Ginger aka Gigger
  8. I make geocaching pins...made from button simuliar to badge-a-minut pins in several styles that say just that "Geocaching" or geocaching.com with map images or a satellite etc...People seem to like my pins...I also leave patriotic pins as well. Ginger aka Gigger
