  4. Not sure on this either. Here in my area there are some with AExxxx, HHxxxx & JHxxxx. Tis a very good question. Was kinda wondering about it myself. Good one for some like surveytech to answer.
  5. Survey Tech Actually the Nikon is a laser model. Looked at the Cabela's catalog last night, they showed it for $369, the Leica was $399.
  6. Range finders. Most often used for hunting. Some have magnifying ability. Just look thru the eyepiece at the object in question, press a button & it gives you distance in either yards or meters, depending on which you have it set on. The Nikon I have is supposed to be accurate + or - 1 yard up to 800 yards with 8X magnification. Seems like I paid around $300 for mine about a year ago (very helpful for muzzleloading hunting). Look at Cabela's or most any sporting goods store. Also might try better Photo stores. Seems like most of the camera makers are expanding their optics lines to include scopes, binoculars and such anymore. HTH John
  7. 1 mile = how many minutes?? I know this is probably a very elementary question but this feeble mind would like to know.
  8. I'm thinking a range finder would be the ticket for getting distances. Much easier than trying to measure several distances with a steel tape.
  9. WOW, just found this site Sat. Morning, got to looking around, not many caches in my area so looked at the bench marks. There are bunches and bunches of them around. Went out this evening for about 45 min. & found 3 out of 4. Found out I need to get a brush to take along to scrub the dirt off the markers, also need to look into a dig. camera and maybe even taking along my range finder. The one I couldnt find I will go back and look some more. No witness post as stated, looked as though underground phone cable installed recently, along with farmers mowing. With all the measurements involved with this one I think the range finder will work great.
  10. Is it possible to get more than a 10 mile radius from the Zip Code?? Just curious for my area towns are not very often and some of the little ones have no post office for a Zip. So seems there will be some blank areas that ought to have markers.
