Re: I hope this is true

Amazing... simply amazing. I bow humbly in the shadow of that man's MacGyverhood.

I've worked on 2CV's in the past, and I can "see" how it was done, but couldn't imagine trying to do it in the field with just hand tools. :shock:

If by "stout stick" you mean "Main Battle Tank" I'll take the stout stick, otherwise I'll go with the .410

Also, amateur radio Field Day is coming up on the weekend of June 23rd. This is the "big event" of the year for amateur radio, and our most public one.

Re: Car for someoen with visual impairment?

Laugh if you want, but I'd say find yourself a late 70's AMC Pacer. Unreal visibility and with engines up to a peppy 5.0L plenty of zip when you need it.

Re: Maintenance questions!

Carrying spares is just as important as doing proper maintenance in my opinion. At the minimum I like to carry a full set of belts and hoses, fluids in quantities sufficient to replace any lost when something goes, fuses, extra bulbs, several tubes of plumbers epoxy, a large can of non-flammable fix...

My only problem with digital is that you're either in range or out of range, no marginal areas where you can still communicate but with some noise.

Re: Industrial Comms Carrying Solutions

Okay, so adapting the current system to the new radios isn't a viable option.

Not having actually worked in your industry I really don't have the knowledge to offer suggestions, but I'm following along anyway, just to see what interesting stuff pops up that I might adapt to my own use. :)

Re: advice for African field work - SSB CB or Motorola CM300

I'll cast my vote with the UHF setup as well. I've used UHF (70cm band) in similar terrain (northern Idaho and far eastern Washington) and found it works quite well. The Moto's will also be easier for non-radio folks to operate correctly.

I personally just don't give a fuck. If I piss someone off on the Internet enough for them to actually come looking for me, hiding my call sign isn't going to do diddly squat in terms of security.
