Speaking of eye relief... and at the risk of letting everyone what a fool I was...

This is what happens when you are bagging an Elk without adequate eye relief!

Re: OAUSA Net - June 27, 2019 - Field Day / Summer Fest Wrap-Up

Great example of a field day set up. Frazier Pk Set up.JPG And unknown until driving home... I blew out a U-Joint on Tom's Trail run. No worries, we made it all the way to the freeway before having to be towed back to Temecula! And new RCV Ultimate CV joints are already being installed! (Any failure...

Re: OAUSA Net – June 6, 2109 – Camp Coffee

Thought I would post a bit about making camp coffee. I use the pour over method because it is the easiest way for me to control the variables that will ensure a good cup of camp coffee. After spending good money on a good coffee, the remaining variables are: Coffee Storage Brew Temperature Brew Time...

Re: OAUSA Net - May 9 & 16, 2019 - Camp Lighting

Just for fun, let's look backwards to the first head worn lamps. Calcium Carbide Miners Lamps were state of the art because they provided a fairly bright (for 1900) light using acetylene gas. Here are some pictures of how far we have come.... Calcium Carbide Lamp Drawing.PNG Head Lamp Circa 1920.jpg

Re: OAUSA Net - May 9, 2019 - Camp Lighting

I just had to share some of my favorite camp lighting/lanterns. The pics below include several lanterns. I love the Dietz No. 1 because of its extra large tank. Of course, any of the Coleman lanterns from the 1952 "Christmas Lantern" to the 1957 "Professional Model (that is the model 202) or even th...

Re: OAUSA Net - May 02, 2019 - New Ham Radios Equipment

Not a new radio at this point but last field day, I upgraded from a Yaesu FT 991 to a 991A.

I really like the new radio for the real time analyzer capability.
