Yeah, because we all know how unsafe it is to have dust on your license plate. If your bike is blocking your plate, that's just an accident waiting to happen.

Re: DMR repeater at the event 2019

I guess what I was asking was is it possible to link in to an analog repeater so that us old skool guys with analog equipment could use it.

I agree on keeping the default world out of it. I quite enjoy being off the grid.

Re: DMR repeater at the event 2019

I don't know much about DMR as I'm an old school analog HF guy but it sounds like something fun to experiment with. Would you be able to backhaul to an analog repeater or could you assign a talk group to analog operations?

I thought as much...but thank you, folks. I will pick up an inline fuse for the cooler. What amperage would you recommend?
For just the pump, go with a fuse a little bigger than the max current rating on the pump. If your pump is rated at 1.9 amps, I'd go with about a 3 amp fuse.

RE: Grounding. As I understand it, the water table is around 15' below the surface of the Playa. If you can get a ground rod down that far, you'd have a very efficient antenna system.

Re: Dumb question about connecting those teeny swamp cooler pump wires to a giant battery

The pump wires are tiny because the pump does not draw that much current. You could hook that pump up to a million amp battery and it will only draw the current it needs.

Re: Main Sale Ticket delivery?

No. No e-mails, no confirmation, and even though they said the packages would be signature required, they're not. They are just dropping them in your mailbox or doorstep. Once the porch pirates get wind of this, tickets are going to start disappearing.

Re: condition of lag screws after removing them from PLaya??

We've been using the same lags for years and years. We do not do anything to them at all, just throw them in the bucket and stash them in our container. Pull em out next year and use em again. They have a little corrosion on the surface but it doesn't affect them in any way.

Evap ponds can work very well if managed right. Our camp has been using one for many years with no problems. You have to make sure your campers and neighbors don't put anything but shower water in it. You have to sweep the water around every now and then so it doesn't puddle up too much and make sur...

Re: There's nothing wrong with basing cleanup deposits on exodus cleanup results

I think the main point of a strike deposit is to create incentive to stay and help strike the camp. If you do that, then you get your deposit back regardless of your moop score. Money just happens to be the best and easiest thing to use to create that incentive. You could use other tangible things t...
