Somebody PM me Don's phone number. He called me to get his radio (couldn't understand hs callback #), I sent him a couple of emails at the address he provided for the class several days ago, and no reply.

But prior to attmpting DX on a repeater one should understand how well they are or are not into the machine. Make sure your battery is charged and you have a good antenna.

Enjoy.

tnx -- i cannot hit those distant machines very well when mobile-- but easy from home. Going thru a diamond x300 up about 40'. For more fun, have an elk LP antenna polarized horizontal to work 2m SSB. that's fun as well.

Have fun.
Hmmm... I didn't have this programmed because it comes up listed in Vacaville in the ARRL repeater directory. I had the Tahoe one though.

Chris, the owner has some equipment on Mt. Vaca and that may be where he lists his liscense. Checkout his website at N6ICW.org. There is a tab explaining his system.

His coverage is every bit as good if not better than 805.

I'll update the list when I get to a computer(Im on my iPhone right now). Do y'all think this list will be helpful? If so, maybe one of the mods could make it a sticky.

I think it very much is Tim. I overheard on the radio yesterday that one on the KI6's printed out the list and had it with him in his vehicle. I plan on printing the list and shrinking the font down and doing the same. Maybe laminate it to keep it from getting damaged.

Ok, may seem super rookie...but I got my call sign 8 or 9 years ago when I was younger to volunteer my time at local airshows and haven't used my radio in 5 years or so. I should know it, but my memory isn't the greatest...to renew my license do I have to retest, or just send in the forms...thanks.

Looking forward to getting a 2 meter setup in my tj.

Niether, Anthony, you're good to go. Your license was good for ten years when you got it. You got your license in June of 2000 and it expires in June of 2010. You can renew it for free when the time comes, so don't mess up and forget to renew it. You can do it online at www.fcc.gov, just follow the links.

See you on the trail!
