Re: OAUSA Net – November 13, 2014 – Destination Death Valley NP

Thought I would add a few photos to fill in some of the gaps. My first entry, the trip to Panamint City but I am getting "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached." I guess I won't be adding photos. Second try, lets see how this goes.

Re: OAUSA Net - 11/6 - KIDS

Account of a Bad Experience: About 15 years ago we went up to the San Gabriel Mountains and pulled into what seemed to be a "campground" with our then toddler daughter. It was late, we got a slow start that turned into a an "in the dark campground" search. While I was scanning the darkness under a n...

Re: OAUSA Net - 10/02/14 – Edged Implements

The Red Head 8" Ceramic sharpening rod has become a favorite for me when a quick dress up is necessary. It ain't high tech, but it sure gets the J-O-B done. http://www.basspro.com/RedHead-8-Round-Ceramic-Sharpening-Rod/product/10207415/ Stropping a blade on a leather belt has become a new technique ...

Re: OAUSA Net - 10/02/14 – Edged Implements

A Tale of Two Knives: This is as much a story of "edged implements" as it is about good friends and the "code" or "creed" fostered by these relationships. It all started when I first joined the US Army as a teenager and my high school buddy followed by becoming a Marine. Rambo, First Blood was the h...

Re: OAUSA Net - 9/25/14 - Alternate Power in the Wilderness

These camping stove/heat generators are interesting but I have no experience with them other than seeing them and wondered if anyone knows anything about them. Although, for most ham applications, there just isn't enough juice to keep a radio battery up and running. http://biolitestove.com/ They hav...

Re: OAUSA Net - 8/28, 2014 - Wilderness Navigation

Another helpful tip is having known, distant, communication assets saved as waypoints so that when you need to, you can easily figure out the distance and azimuth to that station(s). This makes orientation of an HF/UHF/VHF antenna a little easier especially if you are on a trip that precludes your p...

Re: OAUSA Net-9/11/14-What Can You Do If There is Another 9-11

I am venturing out into the world over a long weekend (that's what I do about 9/11...I live) and wanted to at least post a little something on this topic since I will not make the NET. Do not take your training and preparedness for granted. This week is National Preparedness Month and I have been di...
