Default Repeaters in Range at Panoche?

Does anyone have any experience with 2m/440 repeaters that are within range at Panoche?

No experience here... don't even know what it is.

Although I think I know where it is.

Stator,

Good point. There is a non-ARRL repeater coverage map book I've seen (awhile back at Ham Radio Outlet), dunno if coverage maps online at all. Time to Google a bit.

I'm sure you could hit an out of area 10M FM repeater at the right time of day

Oh - RKIs - do digital cellphones work in Panoche reliably? (Verizon analog fallback may work but for those of us w/Cingular, TMobile, etc. that's not too useful.)

Been a while since I checked, but I think K6RDJ up on Mt. Oso is reachable on 70cm if you're not down in a "bowl". KD6FW should work on 2m, as well.

I've seen tons of 70cm boxes listen in the vicinity of Fresno/Firebaugh, some on Mt. Bald, others actually on Oso.

Thanks, I will check for Mt. Blad and Mt Oso locations for repeaters. I plan on taking some people shooting soon so they can learn, have fun, and vote approriately.

Last outing was with my nephew at Metcalf Field Sports Park. He took the target and a couple of spent shells into school for show&tell. The target had his first every X-ring shot. He marked it with the day/date, caliber, and rifle used ("SKS"). Hell almost broke loose at the school. They took away the spent shells and debated about the target. They eventually let him keep the target even though it had the evil words, "SKS" on it.

Darn, things are far different when I back when I was in grade school. We use to walk all over the neighborhood with our rifles and shotguns and nobody thought anything about it.

Oh Stator I love it. Keep him doing this.

Were the spent shells returned to him? I can't see how they would be contraband, and they certainly are not forfeit merely by taking them onto school grounds.

Perhaps you could use this as an opportunity to start or push for a school-affiliated rifle club. Get the kids out there plinking with .22's, teaching them good manners, good habits, and proper safety and marksmanship.

The school confiscated the spent shells and would not give them back. They stated that guns and ammo are prohibited on school grounds. He took a spent shell of 7.62x39 (Wolf polymer), a 7.62x51 NATO that I had fired in my M1A, and a spent 12 gauge. He should have reminded the principle to recycle the brass!

I am debating on whether to install the 10m rig in the truck.
