    Spot SOS doesn’t work?

    👍 Happy belated birthday BTW. I was out of town.
  3. Alas I'm going to miss this week. Have an appt on Wednesday I can't get out of. Meanwhile we were in Arroyo Del Diablo the other day in the 4wd and ran into a mud section. There is a way by on the right side though it's a little off camber. Have fun guys. Maybe next week?
  4. We like to refer to it as Golden Shower. Shinko 👍

    Ok me. I dunno. 20 or 30’ish. Actually I just need the pl tone which sounds like it will be 100.0. Gotta name we’re going to label this new channel?

    Since many of us already have a large number of channels programmed into our radios a generic file may not work well as it will overwrite everything currently in the radio. We may be able to create a file that can be imported into Chirp that will append the new entries rather than overwrite the existing ones. Basically download the current programming in the radio into Chirp. Then append the new entries and upload the modified file back to the radio.

    I'm not absolutely sure but I don't think Chirp supports digital transmission mode.

    Sounds like a good plan. Chirp programming is slightly different between the 5 watts and the 8 watts (BF-F8HP, UV5RTP, etc) in the you have to declare the radio type but it's a simple cut and paste to copy the channel info from one tab to the other.

    Yaesu's are easily done from the keypad. With the Baufengs it can be done from the keypad as well but it's not a particularly user friendly experience. So let's decide on the tone and get on with this. 100 hz is fine by me.

    Yep👍. That's exactly the config we use in our desert group except on a different transmit\receive frequency. You can pick any tone you want. It really doesn't matter which tone frequency you use but obviously everyone has to configured the same for it to work.

    Tone & tone squelch is all you need. DTCS is a different type of squelch and in my experience it can be a bit finicky. Yes all users will need to program their radios to utilize tone and tone squelch.

    Wow. That’s the downside of social media. A lot of damage to Spot’s pr. Did the guy post an apology? Not that it will offset the damage done. Usually I’m skeptical of claims made on the internet believing most of the time there’s more to the story. In this case I have to admit I bit the hook and believed Spot was at fault. Lesson learned.
