  1. I see no problem with links as long as they are on topic, how better to link to other like minded. I used our links, just with the firetower was a national group. As for the freq listed, did you do any research, think there is a board that we would have to ask to make it official.

     

    k, a quick look at the band plan puts 146.74 in the repeater output section

    another idea, my guess if ur a ham and playing with gps, bet also running aprs, freqs already set up n can use 100hz tone on aprs freq to contact or 52

     

    as far as a net, my suggestion is to find a echolink or irlp node to host a national net

    I attempted to include info about local repeaters and clubs in my cache writeups but the reviewers said I had an agenda, and a link to a radio club or association web site wasn't permitted.

     

    Well yes I have an 'agenda'. I want to try to help hams who are geocachers connect with each other.

     

    What does everyone in this forum think?

     

    Should geocaching.com prohibit such information in cache writups?

  2. Be very carefull, in this area, lots of the plots are boobytrapped, so leave the very same way you came in and then let the owner of the cache now to take it off the site. If I was the owner, I'd not go back for the cache as its just not worth it. Think the rest has been said.

  3. Here is an idea I was looking into for a cache that might workfor you, a friend was a real estate agent that had one of those 'talking house' set ups. I was going to use that and broadcast the coods for a multi. I bet you could find one on ebay. Heck eveything else is on there.

    I have done a few clicks of research to try to find these and information on them but was largely unsuccessful. The people who want to sell them outright spend a lot of bandwidth on hype and not prices or useful information like specs and legalities.

     

    My primary question: Do these units require a license?

     

    the talking house units along with the ramsey units are FCC typed, as long as they are not moded

     

    also, no lic requird, tx on FM 88-108. another option that I was thinking are the FRS freqs, but this option is more tech and may not be legal

  5. Ok, I am considering cache which is unique for this area. What I want to do is to take a simple FM transmitter that you would purchase at say RadioShack and connect it to a solar cell. I would then place the transmitter with the cache. The coordinates would only get you within radio range of the geo cache. To find the geo cache you would have to triangulate its position with a radio receiver. Not to mention that in order to do this you would have to know how to do it as well which would entail a little research.

     

    1. What would the hidden pitfalls of this be?

    2. How would I classify this cache?

    3. Any suggestions on entering the coordinates?

    4. Has anyone else attempted something like this?

     

    While AlabamaRambler was right on most counts, Be aware that many Frecs. are tabo with the FCC. Others are limited to Ham or other organizations.

    Otherwise, it could be fun.

    yes, the talking house TXers or the Ramsey items would be the safest bet. I am thinking of doing one here in AR good luck,

  6. In Southern California folks use channel 31 when we go 4wd geocaching. CBs are still fairly popular with the off-road set, since they have better than line-of-sight range limitation of FRS and similar radios.

     

    I normally use 2M, 146.52 or local repeater, and 220 repeaters. Occasionally 10M, 6M, or 440. Yes, I can radiate across a lot of spectrum...

    Yes the 4WD crowd use CB here too, I have 2 running at dif times, try and monitor ch 9 but I mostly run on the VHF/UHF freqs.

    As far as hooking the two together (CB and GPS), it could be done but you would not have any network to upload to, you and friend could do it like the Rinos do, but the tech required would be high. You would be better off to get your ham ticket and join the APRS crowd or go with the Rinos.

     

    thats my 2 cents, you almost have a nickel :rolleyes:

  7. Greetings,<BR><BR>I'm a ham radio operator with callsign N2RUD. If you're a ham please send a reply, and we'll end up with a list of hams using this site. Perhaps the site administrator will give us a separate forum, called "GPS & Ham Radio". If you like that idea, say so!<BR><BR>Please leave your name and callsign.<BR><BR>Anton<BR><BR><BR>------------------<BR>Anton Ninno, N2RUD<BR>Syracuse, NY 13210<BR><BR>[This message has been edited by Anton (edited 03-10-2001).]<BR><BR>[This message has been edited by Anton (edited 03-12-2001).]
