Dave:

That should work, I have all of the info loaded on my 8800 in files on the
laptop and can download it if I want to at a later time. I picked up
a CD, Travelplus for repeaters 2008-2009 edition it includes the
entire ARRL repeater database. I haven't used it yet, but the Ham at the store
said it was very easy to use:

"Use the integrated maps and repeater data within TRAVALPLUS to locate
repeaters along your traval route.It's like having the power of the ARRL
Repeater Directory on your COMPUTER".

Create Route- trace your travel route on colorful US and Canadian
maps, and locate repeaters along the way.

I will bring it on the trip if any one wants to try it.

TravelPlus is what I used to put together the list of repeaters I posted.

If we run on the 2M national frequency, we should select a 440 frequency for simplex communications. Until we make some further adjustment, lets plan on monitoring 437.435 for group communications.
As I was setting up my programming list, I noticed this 440 frequency is probably not a good one to use. I recommend that we use the 446.000 Or another frequency between 445.00 and 447.00 which are designated for simplex operations. The original 440 freq proposed is not a good choice according to bandplans.

I think I have my APRS system up and operating, spoke with Dave this afternoon and
he could locate my location on his computer. But to be sure I would like to have Hector ( the APRS expert )
double check to insure that everything is working like it should be.

Dave:

AS of 1600 hours East coast time no reply from
FCC/ULS.

I will check it again tomorrow after or maybe during our get together
in the morning.

Hope to have something before we depart for the Grand Canyon...
