  1. your in luck i have the exact model your looking for and it was one i was going to fix up ( a battery burst inside causing the thing to act really funny) anyway go ahead and email me. i usually dont read my pms because i dont come on the forums much.
  2. i have a friends sportrak gps and it is in need of a display because the old one is well smoked.
  3. i have a 210 a little over a year old, it is a bundle that comes with 210 gps, mapsend topo 3d usa, case, mapsend lite, 210cd which includes geocaching software, pc cable, cigerret power cable and ofcoarse all the manuals. $140
  4. i had it on ECOLINK and IRLP ........ need more geohams intrested to get it going againe i'll spread the word by the way how many people do you want?
  5. How do you use a repeater? i am about 15 miles north of minneapolis. I can hear them but they cant hear me? the repeater near my house is down for repairs. with only 1.5 wats of power how far can i go to get a repeater? I tried loging into one and i couldnt hear them on the radio anymore but i could hear them on the scanner.
  6. i would like it as long as you keep it on 2 meter or 70cm KD0BEP
  7. Just got in the database! thanks to all for your help! Andrew: KD0BEP
  8. New Ham!!! just got in the database today! Andrew: KD0BEP
  9. About to start day 4 of the wait...
  10. I take my ham test tommorow when i pass how long after can i start to transmit. I know i have to be in the database but how long will that take?
  11. That makes me mad and yes i did see the onix not to long ago and that gps has every little detail i could want in a gps. i am just amazed that the bigger gps companies didnt make it first. Looks like they are falling behind.
  12. i dont know if they make this type of map for garmin gpsrs but i want to buy or download satilite photos onto my gpsmap 60cx. is this possible? and if yes where can i buy them or download them for free?
  13. personaly i think magellan is still ahead on many features and so is garmin im just amazed at the high prices of garmin though. what garmin needs are more channels, stronger rubber, cheaper maps and units, i would love mp3 and since i use my gps for biking i see the spedometer on the garmin 60cx is a little slow. and when will they make satilite photos for maps that goes for both of them it would be nice to know where the un mapped swamps are. The two companies should come together and make an incredible unit but thats never going to happen.
  14. my 210 works better in the woods than my 60cx in terms of accuracy. this is due to the 2 extra channels provided with the 210 16 vs 14 plus look at the maps the 210s maps are incredibly cheaper and they take up less memory plus if you get mapsend topo 3d usa you get roads (non routable) and topo all for as low as $65 new! plus i can get over 3/4 of the state of minnesota within the 22 mb of memory but i am selling the 210 because i need the money. and all in all its not better than the 60cx but what the 210 HAS is better
  15. averaging 88% on ham tests
  16. i feel the same way. theres a point when the technology goes to far and everything works for you rather than you having to work more torwards a goal.
  17. I know the first thing i would do is ask for pictures of THEIR unit. for added security ask to see if they can add an object not included with the product picture such as a sock. and t make sure they would hand over the product ask around im sure someone you would more trust can tell you they are trustfull too.
  18. Are those good units? i wouldnt say good units but they work i found my first 100 caches with mine.
  19. well today my tiny little radio came in the mail. Wow at least half the size i imagined. its a vx-2r and the previous owner kept it in tip top shape. by the way is it legal if i use the radio as a reciever until i get my license or does this break fcc rules.

  21. I wont be getting into HF sadly, or at least not yet but i have been using the eham question pool and studying the answers. not the letters though. I also have been reading the arrl genral class book thing but i guess i can stop looking at the answers in that book seeing they wont be curent for the next test session.
  22. I took a closer look the Mapsend is a CD
  23. Mapsend will not work with garmin unless you know how to alter te format.
  24. As much as i dont like Wal mart, the one near me was selling explorist 100's for $65.00!!! check your losal one they may have the same deal.
