Re: Handheld FMRS Networking?

In Europe, they've done something pretty neat with PMR (It's their low power UHF license free handy talkie service). The rules there don't prohibit users from linking them up to their computers so they actually have a VOIP network using free software. You don't even need a radio at all to use it, a...

Good luck with that. Hot coolant + duct tape = complete mess of non-sticky tape.

Re: Handheld FMRS Networking?

Also, not every brand of radio uses the same frequencies for the same channels. I'm too tired at the moment to dig and get the actual facts for you, so this is just a hypothetical example... Channel 1 on a Cobra might be the same frequency as channel 10 on a Motorola, which might be channel 5 on a R...

Re: Minimum Automotive Tools needed =?

Needed tools will differ depending on the vehicle so I made a little more comprehensive kit: Started with a wrench roll, so I can store a set of wrenches and wrap them up tightly without rattling. Then wait for a good sale (after Christmas or after Fathers day when they clear out the special sets m...

That's cheap for checking an encabulator, unless it's a Mk 1 check. If you have to get out the ecabulation frangdibulation meter though... it can easily triple the cost.

Today, they say leaking GP moto upper radiator hose and bad clamp. They're screwing with the coils trying to reproduce the misfire that isn't apparent now. They said the spark plugs all looked fine. I replaced them 20,000 miles ago. Eh. I'll just be patient. The coils aren't the only thing they're ...

Actually, if you read the specs on it it does indeed require guys. And yes, if I could only pick one system it'd be the GRA-4. The fiberglass poles have their drawbacks, no argument there, but when you can get a dozen for less than ten bucks they're pretty cost effective. I did a quick read through...

Re: Inflatable antenna tower

I'll stick with the Al GRA-4 if given the choice. The fiberglass really doesn't handle abuse very well, nor direct contact with the elements for long periods of time. I've seen the fiberglass ones shatter from stress on more than one occasion. I've also put up the Al ones that were bent to shit, bu...
