Re: Handheld for the playa

GC, I got all that, the question is how to enter it into the spread sheet. Are my 'definitions' correct for the cells. (Nomenclature?)

I'll fumble around with it some more, I'll get it..... :geek:

Re: Handheld for the playa

More Questions: Using the excel sheet to load into the radio. I assume it needs to be in this format to be imported? Do we know the max character for column 'B' or the second row? I'm guessing 8. I realize not all of these cells are used for all freqs and it depends on what freq you want to load. An...

Re: Handheld for the playa

True, we used to hunt asshats down on CB too. I plan to get the tech license after BM as I want to use these on the sand this winter too! :ugeek:

Re: Handheld for the playa

Can I assume we can have a mini orientation class when we get out there? I got a good handle on how to set it up, add/remove channels, move around on the keypad, etc. I have been scanning & bouncing through channels here and its dead. (TT's list) I get a few rookies like me, or testers, keying u...

Re: Weather watch

With the 105-115 temps we've been having out here daily in the Valley-O-Da-Sun, (my power bill is ridunculas!!) I figured if it stays near 100'F I will be good. Especially if the humidity is low like I expect. True, we don't get the humidity, but when its over 105, it flat doesn't matter what the hu...

Re: Handheld for the playa

Thanks TT!! Agreed. All the setting are like a new stereo. Spend two days reading everything, trying different setups and configs to get it 'just right'. Then forget it all by the time you have to move it & set it up again. CG, the VOX question was more for dunin'. Me and my buddy are the only o...

Re: Handheld for the playa

Looking over your freq list I have a question or two or more. Some dumb, some not as dumb... :oops: Are the channel selections you have (0,1,2,3,4,etc), in an order based on personal preference or is there a 'loose' standard for assigning channels to freqs? For example does most everyone set channel...
