Re: Yaesu VX-3R antenna options

Hi Larry,
I got my antenna yesterday. I can hear Keller Peak like a cell phone now from West LA!!! I can't transmit that far, but that's OK for a handheld. I'll try to tune in on Thursday!

Re: Yaesu VX-3R antenna options

Thanks Larry! Is that Diamond atenna the one you had on your belt that was bent in the middle last weekend? If so, that size is fine, especially if I can bend it like that. My only concern would be snapping an antenna in a dirtbike fall...although I guess most of the time I'm not riding with the rad...

Re: Summer Fest/Field Day Reports and Pictures

Unfortunately, I was lazy and didn't take any pictures (even when wheeling) except at the Discovery Center of a baby desert tortoise in a display... :P It was nice to meet everyone who came, shared food, stories, and a campfire. I'm disappointed that I had leftover chicken tinga...until I had it for...

Re: Saturday 2012 Summer Fest Run (White Mountain 3N17)

Kinda wanted to make this, but I have a meeting at 0830 at the Discovery Center. I'll probably run a trail after that (not difficult) but I'll listen to the Keller Peak repeater to hear how much fun you're having :lol:

Re: Saturday 2012 Summer Fest Run (White Mountain 3N17)

Just fyi - I read last year's report about the motorcycles. The reason I'll be up here is because of the same event going on this weekend this year. (I'm hauling up my brother's dirtbike and dropping him off at a motel). http://www.bigbeartrailriders.com/content.aspx?page_id=87&club_id=849383&item_i...
