    N5CNV - now I guess I will have to get a new handheld. I sold all of my old equipment years ago when I was not very active since cell phones gained coverage.

    I need a higher power in-dash unit. The handhelds don't put out much power. Mine is just 8 watts.

    What frequencies do the race radios run? 150's?

    You can actually hit all the frequencies, they're just unlocked HAM radios.

    What are the repeater frequencies for the Moab area? How about a simplex frequency?

    I'll have to look up the frequencies. For simplex, we have one that we use in the 70cm band for the 4x4 club that I would probably make the "official" Blazer Bash frequency since I know I have that one programmed in my radios. Usually we use the 2m band for the repeaters. I'm sure there are repeaters around Moab.

    I'll try to program those 2 as well. Those frequencies are close to what ham people would call the 2meter band.

    I'm usually on the frequencies that ORD runs (I'll let them decide whether to post that up) when we're in Moab, another popular channel is Weatherman (151.625), however last year I noticed that the police were using that channel so I avoided it :eek1:. Pretty sure they were using tones, so they wouldn't have been able to hear us anyways, but we could hear them.

    Here is a sheet of fairly common race radio frequencies:

    Also I have software and programming cables for at least 4 different radios.
