I've just learned about GeoCaching and am looking forward to getting started. I started thinking about adding a DF beacon to a cache early on but as I don't lnow of any other Ham/Geocachers in my area, it might take forever for it to be found!

How about a beacon in the BCB? Most folks have access to a small portable transistor radio with a ferrite loopstick antenna which tend to be pretty directional on ground wave sigs. Any thoughts?

Kevin,

Take a look here at a cache placed by W1TNX. It may give you some ideas, he had to archive it do to muggles, but You'll see the general idea. Bruce is a great guy and if you contact him I'm sure he will tell you how he set it up... 73 N4NNX.
