Re: My "New" 1997 Land Cruiser

Hey Frank,

How is that laptop taking the ride? Does it have problems with the bumps? Do you have something supporting the screen?

It looks like that is a ThinkPad. Do you shut it off when you are going over rough terrain to prevent disk problems?

Re: Recordings of the Thursday Net?

Yes, we will be posting every net on the web site. We are still working out the workflow from recording to processing to posting it on the web. Currently, the process is not automated, so it may take some time to get through the entire workflow. After the process is automated (as many parts as can b...

Re: Recordings of the Thursday Net?

The recordings of the Thursday night net are online. You can reach them from the menu on the home page under "On-air Net Archive". It is not yet a podcast, but it makes the recordings accessible.

Re: Recordings of the Thursday Net?

The Nets have been recorded, and we are working on a way to make them available from the site. By the way, there is a poll on this topic on the home page (http://www.oausa.net) to gauge interest in this.

Re: Yaesu VX-170 (2M Handheld Transceiver)

I have one of these, and it has served me very well. It was my first radio, and I still use it most of the time. (OK, enough laughing about my signal.)

Seriously, I have used it a lot, and it performs really well. Oh, and I have dropped it a couple of times, too. It's rugged.

Licensing Net

I've heard that there will be a General Class Upgrade net after the Trivia Net on Fam-Comm (146.610). Does anyone else know more information?

Do people still use CB?

The last time I used a CB radio, the audio was terrible, and it had very little range. Is this really a useful service any more? Do you use it? Why use it instead of a Ham radio?

I know Camping World tries to sell the radios, but is it only because it doesn't require a license?

Re: "Ollie" (K6JYB) Welcomes You...

Hi everyone, My name is Ken, and the last time I went offroading was with a friend in his GMC 4x4 near Lake Matthews about 20 years ago. It was after a good rain and we got stuck in the mud up to the doors. We had to be towed out. Since then, my outdoor activity has been with my family using a trail...
