Re: OAUSA Net - July 5, 2018 - Carry Bags, (Everyday, Go, Get Home, Bug Out, Tactical, etc)

01 Purpose driven and your experience. BSA 50 Miler.jpg Background: Boy Scouts, I missed the era of hiking that other, older Scouts, experienced. After the "50 Miler," the event happened just months before I joined the troop, there was little desire for the adults to ever do another, anytime soon, a...

Re: OAUSA Net - June 28, 2018 - Field Day / Summer Fest Wrap-up

Operation Red-Eye Net Check-In: A little over 125 miles from the Keller Peak Repeater with a significant piece of dirt between our location and the repeater. A little Google Earth recon before the event but the planned site was not made because the road to the site was gated. 180623, OAUSA FD Site t...

Re: 2018 Field Day Equipment & Participation Sign-Up

CQ, CQ, CQ DE KK6CTT: I will bring my FT-817 and a 10m dipole. We'll see what kind of trouble I can get in with minimalist equipment along with enough wire to build other antenna configurations. Hoping to do some experimenting that I have not really done a lot of over the several years I have owned ...

Re: 2018 Summer Fest/Field Day Sign-up, General Info & Planning

UPDATE: I will be there late on FRI, ETA not certain due to work and other weekday life issues. I could not get FRI off which would have made this a whole lot easier but, that's life. I am checking the other stuff that is involved the feed plan (posts), whatever it is...at this point I would like to...

Re: OAUSA Net - JUne 14, 2018 - Field Day

KK6CTT, Rick for the on-line check-in please. I am ready to do some camping this year and change things up from the local Riverside club. I will miss their activities but I am looking forward to seeing the OAUSA version of the same. I'm sure there will be plenty to learn, eat and experience. 180527,...

Re: OAUSA Net - May 31, 2018 - Shooting

KK6CTT for the on-line check-in please. Thank you! I am a big supporter of the 2A discussion and I believe marksmanship as well as understanding the history behind our 2A, God given right, is captured in the training that is part of Project Appleseed. If you have not had the opportunity to shoot sta...

Re: OAUSA Net - May17, 2018 - Ham Radio (Installation, Use Tips, Pitfalls, and more)

KK6CTT for the early check-in please. Looking forward to the net; this coming from a guy who binder clips mini radios to the center console, uses a 12v cigarette lighter plug and a mag-mount antenna. It ain't pretty but it works. Definitely not on par with some of the examples I have seen out on the...

Re: 2018 Summer Fest/Field Day Sign-up, General Info & Planning

My wife and I will be at Field Day 2018. I have reserved the single camp site #031 adjacent to Group Camp 2 for 22-24 JUN 2018 to avoid parking issues with my trailer...others. I have invited others to visit and I will incur the excess personnel at our site to avoid logistic issues for the OAUSA gro...

Re: OAUSA Net - 05/10/18 – Camp Dutch Oven Cooking

You gotta love Dutch oven cooking and better yet, eating the products of this kind of cooking...great stuff. Other than bulk, DO cooking is such a great campsite activity. As a teaser; some tenets about DO cooking: 1. If it is a great home cooked oven meal at home you can turn it into a great out of...
