      Just wondering. Of those of you that are going to the TCA rally in February, who has radios? Please reply if you have GMRS, FRS, Ham or CB capability.

      I’m thinking of designating a 2 meter simplex frequency and a GMRS/FRS channel for communication at the rally if it looks like it would be worthwile.

      I have 2 meter/440 and HF Ham capability and GMRS. I also have APRS. I will probably get a CB up and running by then, but we’ll see.

      Thanks,
      Joel

      Hi Joel

      I have 2 meter/440 as well as GMRS. Would be good to set up a 2 meter simplex freq. as well as a TCA ham meetup at Roadrunner.

      Thanks Walt. It looks like there is free time after my Ham Radio presentation. I’m planning on doing a demo at that time if possible. A ham meetup sounds like a great idea. We could combine it with the demo, or try to schedule something separate.

      You are the only one who has responded, so not sure how many radio folks will be there.

      Hello Joel,

      I carry 2m/70cm plus GRMS. I usually monitor 2m simplex (Nat’l call freq) unless something else is specified.

      I imagine there will be a dozen or so Ham Radio operators at the rally, maybe more.

      I’ve got 2M and 440. Have a D-Star and HAM UHF but haven’t installed them yet.
      Love to see what you think about installation.
      Let’s hook up at the Rally.

      Unfortunately, I won’t be attending the rally this year. Just too much going on here. If anyone has HF and wants to try a QSO, I would be up for that.
