NGS Mark Recovery Entry

Recommended Posts

I was browsing around the NGS site and took a look at the Mark Recovery Entry page, which includes a form to enter recovery notes. I notice that on the list of agency codes ( U. S. Power Squadron,  NGS, and so on) there is an entry for GEOCAC (Geocaching).

 

I've never seen a recovery note by GEOCAC and am wondering who is authorized to use that field and submit recovery notes.

Almost all of the regulars here use that agency code.

 

One of mine, for example:
