  1. That is good advice. I'll get me a few.
  2. I use 4" deck screws through the sidewalls of my tires into the flooring of the trailer. Actually, I leave it in neutral, apply the parking brake, and strap it down.
  3. I do that at the end of the year.
  4. The mold issue in our hunt cabin has began to accelerate and my brother and another hunt buddy have purchased enclosed trailers to convert into hunt campers. I'm about ready to pull the trigger on getting one myself. I will also be hauling my atv in the back where they put theirs in the back of their trucks. My question to the crowd is the barn door rear opening versus the ramp. The ramp is great for driving the atv right up into the trailer but having a barn door makes it easier to open to get to something that is at that end. With barn doors I'd certainly have to carry ramps. Have you already worked through this decision? If so, what did you come up with?
  5. As part of our SAR fundraisers, I'm working as a firefighter at the Mid-Ohio O'Reilly Auto Parts 150. It's NASCAR Truck, if that's the right way to say it. I am camping with the other workers, should be an interesting time. I have no idea why I, a volunteer, is qualified as a firefighter, but I did take the online training!
  6. Thanks! I lost one set of keys and was wondering how to figure out to know what to order. I'll look at my atv tomorrow to get the letter and two numbers.
  7. @_Wilson_™ I don't think you meant Zello now that I read your post again.
  8. @_Wilson_™ do you mean Zello? If so that is what we use when we deploy either on SAR or Disaster Services. When we get onsite we shut it off due to the battery drain it has and we switch to either plain mobile phone, HT (amatuer radio) or private network radio. And yes, I think Derf knows WAY more than I do about amateur radio though I do use HT's quite a bit. As for what repeater I was on, I'm not sure. I was traveling to and from Henderson, Tn at the time for a SARTECH II certification exam.
  9. I have always had to put in an offset, as my radio does not do the lookups for me to determine it. I don't have an opinion on what you are doing as far as "can't be done", but the Yaesu and the two Beofeng's that I have required me to enter in the offset, both the direction and the amount.
  10. I don't really recall what the topic was, but I do recall someone typed something in and forgot a comma and @bcsman jumped on it. In a friend way, but I thought it was funny so I put it as my sig line. THEN I promptly forgot that I put it as my sig line.
  11. I stacked things on and against my ATV today. We are redoing a room over our garage and had to take things out of it. My atv sits in the middle of my garage so I can generate calls to the HOA riding it around on the streets when it snows. For a few days I have boxes stacked on it and new doors leaning against it. THAT'S what I did to my atv today.
  12. I use that on occasion, good site. Whenever we get deployed I do a quick search using there and both print out and load the repeaters into my HT's.
  13. The last time we had a tree strike they made signs and marched around the property.
  14. WIRES-X is fun. WINLINK is very useful so I'll keep going on that.
  15. I'm playing with WIRES-X right now. It's cool hearing other countries chat. I've listened to Japan, Italy, Australia and of course, USA.
