Ham's Attending 2014 Summit Sign in Here!

Hello,

As those of us know who are Ham Radio operators, there is a definite benefit to having ham radio capabilities on the trails during the Summit. Last year ham's were able to assist in a couple of emergencies where there was no cell phone coverage and individuals needed assistance.

In an attempt to document who has ham radios in their FJ's please sign in below.

Please provide the following information:

Name:
Callsign:
License Class:
VE (?):
Equipment (2m, 70cm, APRS, HF, etc.)
Trails and times:

I'll start

Dale Durham
W5WI

VE: Yes
Yaesu Dual band 2m/70cm, APRS, HF

Trails:
Thursday Trail Run: Imogene Pass Photo Trail at 09:20 AM
Friday Trail Run: Poughkeepsie Gulch at 07:20 AM
Saturday Trail Run: Black Bear Pass to Ophir Pass at 08:30 AM

Cheers,

dale

Happy Trails!

We will both be General before the event, and may/may not have HF setups at that point.

Currently just a Baofeng UV-5R, but a Yaesu FT-7900 on the way.

Trails: much like dorton, not many options when I registered so will update later

Re: Ham's Attending 2014 Summit Sign in Here!

I don't like to give my call sign all over the internets but I'll be happy to give it at the Summit or to someone if they decide to put a list together to give out at Summit.

Name: Mike
License Class: Technician
VE (?): Nope
Equipment (2m, 70cm, APRS, HF, etc.): Currently Baofeng UV-5R+ - will have a mobile rig installed before summit.
Trails and times: Thursday Trail Run: Black Bear Pass to Ophir Pass at 08:00 AM
Friday Trail Run: California/Corkscrew sponsored by Discount Tire at 09:10 AM
Saturday Trail Run: Imogene Pass Photo Trail at 09:20 AM


I may upgrade to the General license before the Summit but we'll see if time allows for it. Otherwise if there ends up being a test session there, I will probably take the general exam there.

FYI your ham call is in public domain. It's a public record since it is a federal license and you have to give it when you transmit. So, whether or not you put it on the internet is really a moot point! Many of us have our ham call on our state license plate!

I'm planning on having a VE test session at the Summit. Hence the reason I'm trying to determine who is a VE to help test anyone who wants to take the technician test or upgrade.

Do you have APRS? I'm trying to see who has APRS capability to determine if many/most of the trail runs can be monitored from base camp via APRS.

Cheers,

dale

Happy Trails!
