+MedicP1 Posted July 8, 2005 Share Posted July 8, 2005 Johnnie - Just make sure that you set the channel to something other than 2 or 12 as Geocachers in the area just chatting to one another may inadvertently be setting off your system and draining the batteries more quickly than you had planned. I'd try something like 11 or 13 as it wouldn't be a common number for kids to select, they would more likely go for a single digit channel. If your power consumption becomes an issue you could always look at one of the FRS radios that goes into sleeper mode, when not used for X seconds, to conserve battery life or disable the LCD display on the radio, I don't know how much power an LCD display consumes but every bit would help.
