Is anyone bringing a spot device besides Will? I will be setting up a spot page for Will, do I need to add any additional devices?

I have Spot 4 and will be bringing it. I changed the notifications back to the Club officers from my private trip to New Mexico so it should be good to go.

To the Oregon Discovery Trail Blazers this year:

Want to wish you all well, and let the adventure begin (you guys leaving tomorrow)

Have a great time.

Last year, Oregon Trail Blazers = 0 vs Dismal Swamp = 1 stuck over night. Hopefully this year Oregon Trail Blazers=1 vs Dismal Swamp=0 :D

And last, have a safe trip to and back!

Thanks Ron. Yes, preparations are underway here as well. Truck is about half loaded and I'm still rounding stuff up. Seems like it gets worse every trip!

On top: tent, jerry cans, table, chairs, crate of firewood, three antennas.

In the back: fridge, recovery gear, tools, six crates of stuff, potty, stove, clothes, laptop. charcoal, sleeping bags, fire pan, awning poles.

In the front: three radios, two GPSs, maps, and oh yeah, driver and passenger!

Memo to self: Check tire pressure :D

I turned mine on for a few minutes and got two reports from my back yard. Will is home now - but is Shrek?? Thanks for setting this up, Gary.

Has Leigh mentioned anything about APRS tracking? I don't know if he has had a chance to get it working. It's unlikely there will be any coverage in the area where we'll be since a map on aprs.org is showing a big blank space there. I did find four repeaters that should cover much of the area we will be in.

Gary is your noise on 40 meters still bad. I don't know if you want to try another schedule but I'm game. This weekend is ARRL Field Day so Saturday night is probably a bad time. 7180 KHz or the next clear spot below that at 2.5 KHz intervals. Maybe 7:00 PM since the sun doesn't set until 8:45 or so.

I have had my ARPS working in the past. I will have it on through out the trip and we will see if you guys can track me.

Gary,

Should I adjust my power to 50 W to improve the odds of getting the ARPS to find a digirepeater?

I would stay around 10Watts so as not to kill your battery when stopped. If your radio is not running when the motor is off, then yes, run at higher power. Also what interval is your radio set to beacon at?
