  1. Thank you! Best regards, Fred
  2. I bought one of these labels: https://shop.geocaching.com/default/stickers-and-trade/stickers-and-clings/3-refective-travel-bug-decal.html I found the page to activate it but i have some questions. Do I make the it collectible? Can locations of where it was discovered be seen? I am sure tother questions will come up but for now ... Thank you! Best regards, Fred
  3. Please don't refer to 9-1-1 as anything but 9-1-1. There is no '11' on the phone pad. It may seem silly but, in a time of emergency, many have tried to find the '11' on their phone thereby failing to be able to make the appropriate call quickly. Thanks for considering this! Best regards, Fred
  4. There is an additional option. Check out APRS: Automated Packet Reporting System. With it, not only can others see your presence, you can also send a beacon that includes the frequency you are using. My favorite radio is the Kenwood TH-D72A. Someday I hope to own one myself. Another option is from Yaesu. Neither are cheap but that both serve the purpose.

  6. I have used CB in my four wheel drive for keeping connected to a group running trails. I still keep it for that reason. The FRS, I used with my family since no one else is interested in Amateur. GMRS, is a costly version of FRS with slightly more range and possibly less crowded. I believe a license in the US is $75. (I hope I am wrong about this.) Check the licensing requirement before purchasing. With Amateur radio, there are many more options. It seams that the way to communicate is variable depending on what the goal is. It is possible to get out a canyons and such by using a satellite also. There is at least one handheld dual band satellite antenna that I will check out some day. 73s, N7FMH Best Regards, Fred
  7. It seems it might be a good idea to log your starting point as a waypoint. We would look pretty silly to find the cache, only to be rescued for not finding our way out. Best Regards, Fred

  13. I would certainly check out: http://joe.mehaffey.com. The answer to your question is probably there. Best Regards, Fred
  14. I am looking to acquire a couple of Rand McNally GPS cases for their cases. I need them to use as a project box for a project I am working on. If the connector is intact, that would be a good thing. If the connector is not intact, that is okay, too. Thanks.
