Re: Charmed to make your acquaintance ❤️

Welcome to ePlaya! Aside from joining a camp, or not, if you don't have any experience camping, I'd suggest a couple weekend practice camping trips before you head out to the Playa for a week. The Playa is pretty harsh and it helps to know how to make yourself comfortable in the outdoors. Learn how ...

Re: 2020 One thing a day for Burning Man

Where do you like to stay in Reno? I've done the Sands Regency the past couple of years. I like the 24-hour Mel's on site, and their parking is decent and free. Looking for opinions about other places though. I normally stay at the Sands as well but this year, I'm trying out the Western Village & I...

Re: Newbie from NY looking for their first burn.

I don't know how much camping experience you have but it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to go camping for a weekend or two. If you've never camped before, these practice trips will help a lot. If you have camped before, this will be a good shakedown for your gear. Aside from all the other stuff Bur...

Is it possible to rent a bleach there? Or I should care mine one?
We don't understand what this means. Bleach is a liquid that can disinfect water. Bring a little container of it with you. Renting bleach is not a thing. The second sentence makes no sense at all.

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.

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: 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.
