Grumble grumble still in Torrance!

Work keeps getting in the way. I'm still planning on finishing loading and hitting the road tonight to drive as far North as I can before pulling over and sleeping. In the morning I get to do some *more* work before continuing the drive.

Yay for being overworked.

e-mail me your tracks. I'm bringing a netbook with Mapsource. You can load off of that.

Installed the steering damper, taller hand guards, and changed out the front tire with a TKC-80 knobby. I'm also changing out the rear tire, but needed to take a break and eat something.

Filter your tracks to less then 500 points for big loops, even less for the small loops. It will cut their size down. You can do this in MapSource or BaseCamp.

Put a bigger SD card in the Montana. It will hold at least 32 GB (probably 64).

This is a store-and-forward repeater, normally operates as simplex but I'm going duplex so you don't have to hear transmissions twice if you're close. Incoming transmissions are stored and then re-transmitted on full power when complete, as such a one second message takes a total of two seconds to get across the group.
List of "local" DV repeaters as posted on Expedition Portal:

Did I miss a simplex frequency?
Maybe I missed this on an earlier page: can someone with a 40 channel CB reach ya? (http://www.csgnetwork.com/cbradiofreq.html)

I have a hand-held CB that I bought for my first-ever M/C trip (cross-country) in 1993. Its a Realistic TRC-226; might have put out 5w on HI back in the day...

CB radios won't reach nearly as far... besides, then everyone would have to brush up on all their 10-codes, Good Buddy.

Regs say 1-5mi (mine is probably 1mi with only 5w power on HI)

Well if I had SSB or an illegal power source... but really its all I got. Worthless?
