    Need Help!

    I recently purchased a geocoin (TB1WJ1K ) "Wretched Skull Geocoin", from another cacher at the Wisconsin 2013 West Bend Mega Event on 8/10/13 but the owner has yet to send me the adoption email so that i can transfer ownership over to myself. I have tried emailing the owner twice and also emailed another cacher by the name of Averith who was with the coin owner at the time of sale, no answer back from either of them, what can i do so that i can get this issue resolved and get the ownership changed to me?
  3. Ok so i know how to manually put in a set of coordinates by marking a way point and changing the location, but when i go to the compass screen to help guide me to my destination it show another cache and not the manually entered coordinates i plugged in, but if i go to the map screen there it is. I want to be able to use my compass to guide me to my manually entered coordinates, how do i accomplish this?
  4. Moderators please move this thread to its proper forum this is not a GPS and Ham Radio related topic!
  5. Try this place just ordered some from there: http://goinggear.com/camping-hiking...-desert-keep2go-waterproof-capsule-small.html
  6. Thank you "ckpetrus" for doing that for me, it is greatly appreciated and very kind of you. I'll try and pass the word on to my friends about your great magazine and get you some more business. Like I've always said "pay it forward", and that's why I've given two premium member subscriptions to new geocachers so that they could enjoy the hobby like i have since 2006.
  7. Thank you Everyone for the information it is greatly appreciated, and yes i did subscribe to the FTF magazine and actually got my first copy today in the mail about 30 minutes ago. Chris2537
  8. Does anyone know anything about this website or the owner is he still in business publishing this magazine. i ran across this website in Jan. and signed up and paid for a subscription but have not heard or seen anything since, just wondering if its a defunct business or how often he publishes this magazine. I would have thought i would have got a copy already? I sent an e-mail to him a few weeks back but never got a response, even checked spam folder. http://geocachermagazine.webs.com/
  9. Buy the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual you can find it on the ARRL website or through Amazon, then go to a number of different ham radio sites like QRZ.com, Eham.net or just do a search for technician question pool and you can study all the question that will be on the test for free, its really easy you'll have your ticket in no time!
  10. Spend the little time and study for your ham ticket, if 13 year olds can pass it than anyone can. it has much better range than the CBs do and its a lot more fun! chris KC9LJT

  12. Nice review but this is in the wrong spot it should be under GPS units and software use this particular thread is for GPS and HAM radio use and the connection the two have! 73s KC9LJT
  13. If all you want to do is receive APRS then the easiest would be to add this link to your PC at home: aprs.fi (It uses Google Maps and even has Satellite views that you can use.) what link? sakis http://aprs.fi/
  14. Check out some of these books in the following link they may be of some help to you! http://www.arrl.org/catalog/index.php3?cat...%26+Propagation 73s KC9LJT
