This year we were given a 2m frequency and a cb channel. I never heard a peep on the cb. I was chatting with one of the grass valley fourwheelers and he mentioned they had considered gmrs for club use but ultimately decided to go with ham radio for club use.
I purchased mostly to use as a cap, this will be my the location of my HF antenna (working on the license and radio) when I'm done. Just wondering if anyone has used one and if its useful for more than just vehicle to vehicle. Maybe I'll plug in an HT when I'm not using the HF rig.
I have a Yaesu 8800 in my truck and while its a fine radio (small finicky knobs not withstanding) I'd like something a little more water resistant for the Jeep. Dual band preferably. I've been just carrying a handheld in the Jeep and thats fine for trail use but not so much hitting repeaters.
Well my run had a listed cb channel 15, and a listed ham freq, 146.535. Never heard a peep on the cb. All comms were on ham. Simplex. Even if you don't want to take the test its time to pick up a baofeng (or other handheld) just so you can listen. They were even having a license test just before...
I was leaving camp near the Volcanic Tablelands off 395, decided to say hello on 2m. Announce I'm planning on heading up to Cerro Gordo. Immediately get a warning of high winds then another guy gets on and says "hey, we have a group heading up today, meeting up at 11:00, join us". Not that I...

I've been unable to get a reply from maxtrax nor have any of the dealers replied. Anyone have any idea of how they last exposed to sun? I'd like to keep them more or less permanently mounted on the roof.
I'm wondering if I should make some kind of cover. Kind of expensive to wind up having them...
Or you might get this.
100/80 watt hella H4 bulbs in IPF housings. Ran them for years with no problems. Drag the Jeep out for the toy run and hmmm, no headlights. You can sorta see on the other bulb where the solder connection has melted. I can only think I left them on while parked and...
