I am involved in search and rescue, but I'm also a hiker, geocacher, and ham radio operator. I always take my radio with me ..... should I become injured myself or come across someone in distress in an area with out cell service, I can summon help. So yes.. geocaching and ham radio can be combined.
I carry a ILBE assualt pack fitted with a 3L camelbak hydration bladder, a USGI emergency signal mirror, cell phone, compass, FOX-40 whistle, dual band hand held radio, first aid kit, emergency bivy, and of course my GPS. All this does not add much weight to my pack but assures that I can survive for a minimum of 24 hrs in the wilderness if needed.
