Are there any other Ham radio operators coming to Blazer Bash?
I will have my handheld boefeng I use at our races.
Not this year. Plans for next year in progress.
KC2AKU I can bring my 2m mobile and 440mhz hand held.
I have mine stuck on my back window; it's N0SCO.
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.
KD2MXY -- SORRY the trip form NJ is just too far -------73s gang
I have a 50W race radio in the S-10 and one in the motorhome.
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?
Cheap BaoFeng HT, extended battery, and antenna
Yes sir ours starts with 151
You can actually hit all the frequencies, they're just unlocked HAM radios.
I have a handheld Baofeng F8HT
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.
Here's the repeater frequencies https://www.repeaterbook.com/repeaters/location_search.php?state_id=49&type=city&loc=Moab
What frequencies do you all usually run on the race radios?
We use 150.965 as the main channel but have 152.990
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 . 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.
