  3. My Wouxun KG-1000G is setup real nice As a GMRS radio, the KG-1000G is only allowed to transmit on the frequencies that are part of the GMRS. However, that does not limit the frequencies that can be received or monitored. The KG-1000G can receive on any frequency in the following ranges: 50-53.995, 108-179.995, 320-349.995, 400-479.995 and 700-985 MHz. Included in that range are airband frequencies where AM is often used, and the KG-1000G can even auto-detect and demodulate AM! Look for an antenna that covers 50 MHz - 985 MHz Channels 8-14 Transmitting is limited to a half watt of output power. The KG-1000G is not capable of transmitting at this low of power and does not allow transmitting on these channels (although you can listen) so in the below chart you will see Channels 8-14 marked as RX Only (receive only). Channels 15-22 Transmitting is limited to 50 watts of output power. Channels 23-30 receive on the same frequencies as channels 15-22, but transmit on a special offset frequency set aside for repeaters.

  5. This died real quick.... I love the cummins diesel and asin trans combination which was only available on 3500 trucks and heavier duty like 4500 etc. What I disliked MAJORILY with my 2013 RAM Big Horn was the front suspension. I had the worst death wobble when I was driving around a bend in the expressway and hit a bump in the road, would start the death wobble so much that I had to slow down alot to get it to stop so I can continue driving. It's been brought to dealerships several times and no matter what they do they could not stop this from happening which sucks because I loved my 2013 RAM very much. With the suspension problems and now it starting to rust around the front fender, I sold my 2013 RAM. So I "thought" the suspension would be fixed in the 2018 model so I ended up purchasing a new 2018 2500 with the Cummins but RAM trans and man what a mistake. The suspension problems still exist so apparently you can only have RAMs in states with roads with no bumps on corners so probably more southern states. Definitely not northern states like Michigan where we have to redo our roads every year. We only have two seasons: winter and construction I ended up selling the 2018 RAM fairly quickly. It had some electronic issues and no one in the family liked it as much as the 2013.

    Had a great time. After our first experience with mitreadheads my wife and I would recommend becoming a member and going on some rides with the group. Everyone is very friendly and the ride was very well organized which has to be difficult with two different ride groups (advanced and moderate pace) and having so many machines to keep organized and going. There was 104 machines in advanced paced and 60 in moderate pace. For $25 a person it was a great deal which included lunch. 955BE6A2-E601-4B04-AC94-84445745DB38.MOV 258E0D7B-6D9C-48FF-B8D3-842399F7B686.MOV

    Communication

    You won't be able to use your Baofeng BF-F8HP for CB since the radio is designed (and only has the antenna) for VHF / UHF (not HF which is where you'll find citizen band) Regards to your attachment, you have several frequencies that are considered illegal to TX over. I would stay clear of them. Check our the attached “legal to use channels”. Remember if you get caught using an illegal channel, the FCC will fine you $10,000 per day so not sure it’s worth it. Open Use MURS and FRS.csv
  14. I just got my Baofeng BF-F8HP radios. Pretty impressed with the quality. In hind site I didn't think about charging them even though it does come with a desktop charger, but I don't plan on leaving it on my desk. So I ordered an expansion battery (estimated to be good for 2 days on one charge) with a USB charger. Whats cool about this setup (expansion battery and USB charge cord) is now you can charge the radio directly where before you had to use a cradle since there is no ports on the radio itself to charge withhout cradle. Now with the expansion battery you can charge direct. So now I have to learn how to program the radios. I have 128 channels so I'm hoping to program the first 40 channels with CB channels, then starting at 50 I would program the rugged radio frequencies since you can't reprogram rugged radios last I checked. With just this setup I would have all CB channels and all rugged radio GMRS channels. Pretty good deal with maybe some high end channels being emergency like NOAA, etc. Still trying to get a complete list (the optimum list) to program into my Baofeng BF-F8HP. Do you have a great list to import of frequencies you recommend having? I'm using the freeware CHIRP software package to program the radios. Do you recommend anything different? I use a Mac 98% of the time and the 2% I use a windows VM. check out the programming reference guide for the Baofeng radios here Here's our short description of each field: Frequency (eg 151.625MHz) Channel Name (Weatherman!) Tone Mode (leave blank for no tone) (options TX Tone, TSQL (tx&rx), DTCS Analog Tone Code (ignored if mode left blank) eg 171.3Hz Tone Squelch (TX and RX Tone, also ignored unless Mode set to TSQL) Cross Mode if using Tone or DCS in tx or rx differently DTCS Code is transmit DCS tone RX DTCS Code is for the receive DCS tone DTCS Polarity eg D023Normal and D023Inverted (Normal or Reverse) Duplex (leave blank for normal, + or - for offset frequencies, off for RX only like NOAA WX stations) Offset in MHz for TX and RX (normally 0 for desert stuff with no repeaters) Mode (FM is Wide, NFM is Narrow) Always use Narrow! Power!!!!!! (TX power level) Skip channel in Scan List (S to skip, blank to include) BCL Busy Channel Lockout disallows transmit if channel is busy! PTT ID is for announcement of radio's specific ID and not used in desert PTT ID Code is a DTMF string transmitted when PTT ID is enabled baofeng-freqs.csv

  16. Some of us with K5’s would like to show the everyday Jeep’s that we can hang with them on the trails but our biggest issue is we are so much bigger than they are. So stock JK vs stock K5 (2nd gen) Length: 13.8 ft vs 16.1ft (diff 2.5 ft) Width: 6.2 ft vs 6.6 ft (diff 4″) Height: 5.11 ft vs 6.2 ft (diff 3″) Wheelbase: 7.11 ft vs 8.9 ft (diff 10″) so not a HUGE difference but none the less the K5 is bigger but the huge difference is.. they aren’t nearly as common. Everyone can go buy a jeep done and ready to go on the trails. It’s getting harder and harder to find a K5 thats in good condition and once you do, parts are getting harder and harder to find. Most offroad supply stores are focused 99% on new Jeeps. Why? Because everyone has one… not very unique.
  17. Here are some items just off the top of my head... I know I'm missing a bunch winch auxillary lights tool kit hijack mre's spare drive shaft spare u joints shovel and axe or pitchfork descent size cooler ( use as cooler,chair,step, tool and parts prop,moving a bunch of odds and ends, keeping spare parts in, etc.) flashlights tire repair kit flares tow straps tow rope utility rope ...etc etc...your "expedition'' rig should be set up like a good hiking pack.
  18. Building an expedition vehicle and not sure what I should carry with me? What kind of items should I concentrate on? Any help is appreciated.
