I'm gonna go with the "a bit better radio."  Not only does this jibe with my 60-vs-Baofeng experiences, it makes me feel better about spending 5x as much for an FT-60 that I hardly ever use, while wishing I had a VX-6R.  ;D

Also, the weather was fair, and no injuries or other incidents.
That's a good day in the outdoors.

Here's some photos from my checkpoint.  We do have decent scenery up here (my biased opinion)

A day well spent, playing radio and standing by to help people.  Nice scenery.

New post up:
Additions to the Library
  • SF Radio Training STP 31-18E4 (2003)
  • US Special Forces Antenna Manual (1974)
  • ITU Handbook on Emergency Telecom (2005)
  • National Interoperability Field Guide (2014)
  • FCC January_2016_Spectrum_Wall_Chart (you guess date)
All interesting stuff, most of which has been floating around these parts for years (thanks Carl!).  Wouldn't do any harm to review though, since it's out here in front now.

Why the RTO Course Exists and A Course Review From The Volunteer State

Even if you never contemplate taking ncscout's class, it's a worthwhile read that clearly distinguishes tactical (or more to the point here, survival) comms from hobby ham operation.  It's also a call to action, to get your skills down while the gettin's still good.

I had to toss out a pair of dead shorts yesterday.  They didn't resist.
