GPS and RDF

Recommended Posts

IVe placed my first cache today. to find it though you need basic RDF skills though. the coordinates i listed for the cache, has what FRS channel, and quite code (pl, ctcss) to transmit with. i linked an old FRS radio to a simplex repeater (MFJ makes them, radioshack used to). after you tune your radio to the set frequency, transmitting will key the simplex repeater, for how long you talked up to 45 secs.

 

i think this was the easiest way to set this up because, its not transmitting all the time, i can monitor it via a remote system i set up, and i really dont have to worry about the wrong person finding it

 

i hope to bring some "new blood" into the hobby, if someone is going to find it , and they are not a ham, it mite spark some interest in our hobby!!

 

email me at kc2gog@amsat.org for more details
