National Simplex?

Peter,
Instead of monitoring the National Simplex freq., why not try monitoring some of the CA/AZ repeaters?

NM is fortunate to have the Mega-Link, a connection of about 30 repeaters on various mountain tops. Connect to any one and you can talk/listen to almost the entire state.

Likely CA & AZ have something similar.

We ave plenty of garden hose. The copper pipes are getting a little thin, but they still have a few rallies left.

It looks like we will get to the rally on Saturday morning. We had hoped to get out of town on Friday, but Jan has to work. Rather then fight the Phoenix traffic and then arrive and setup in the dark, we will head out early on Saturday morning and see you then!

Please everyone, have a safe trip to the park!

The trucks loaded and the dogs goin goofy so I guess we'll leave for Slab City. If any of you want to join us there until we leave for the park on the 29th. We'll be in area 17. Look for the Airstream with the "TIN CABN" license plate.

TV reception at Picacho??

I wonder if it might be possible to get the Saturday night football game at the park. Also, I don't want to miss the Amazing Race on Sunday night. Does anyone know about reception at Picacho?

TV reception

Mike,
We will be in a vast open area closer to Tucson then Phoenix. I think we should be able to receive over the air broadcasts from one of the network stations showing "the game". We're closer to Casa Grande and Florence so maybe we'll get lucky and pickup a rural translator on a mountain top. Who has satellite?
See you tomorrow,
Ken

Ken: Sounds good. Now all we need is power for the TV. BTW, we won't be able to get to Picacho until after noon on Saturday.

Richard: The Pats as they go for the record of course. BTW, I once worked for a 9-person company owned by the founding owner of the Patriots.

As a long time Giants fan, I will hope for an upset. The only thing on the line for this game is the record. A lot of folks in Miami will be puling for my guys also.

Richard,

I too was a Giants fan. While growing up in Boston in the '50s and early '60s, they were the nearest team and all the games were shown on TV. They also had real football players with great names like Huff, Katcavage, and Robustelli. And who could forget the play of Gary Wood and Pete Gogolak? Alas, the greats are no longer there.

I'm leaving shortly. Keep 'em cold for me. I'm referring to the drinks and not the nights.

Have FUN you guys. Wish we could be there. We'll spend the time watching snow obliterate our lawns and driveway.

Happy New Year.

Barry
