Nope, they dropped the morse code requirement for both the tech and general classes. You still need it for the extra class though.

Re: DMR repeater on the playa

Sounds like a fun thing to play with out there. I have brought some of my shack out there before and found that I just didn't use it that much. GMRS radios work well for camp communications and can also be used to summon rangers or medical. There is also a 2 meter and a 70cm repeater in range of the...

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...

I don't have a problem with people/camps having more money than me. If you want to bring out your million dollar RV's and have lavish accommodations, then by all means as long as you do it yourself. What I take issue with is hiring a crew to do it all for you. That is commodification. If these uber ...

Does anyone know why the rest stops were closed? I shudder to think it was because the burners are so messy. Rest stops are NOT a trash dump.
They were closed due to the fires in that area. Several off-ramps along there were closed as well.

Re: Solar Panel extension cable... help me not blow this up

You can always go with a thicker (smaller gauge) wire. It's going to a thinner (larger gauge) wire that can cause issues.

Going from 14 gauge to 12 gauge will be fine.
