Police Pictures And Pig Radio!

Ten - Ten International or just 10 - 10 for short is an organization of amateur radio operators which are dedicated to maintaining high levels of amateur radio and communication on the 10 meter amateur wave band (28.0-29.7 MHz). It was established in 1962 and has grown continuously since that day, but not without it's ups and downs according to the number of sunspots and the openness of the band. At this point over 75,000 10-10 numbers have been issued.


So how did I get here? This writing journey began about 20 years ago when Don Feigel, the editor of an icom 2 way radios newsletter, asked if I could contribute some articles. I'm a professional electronics technician, so I was interested in the tech side, but the pieces quickly devolved into comedy. I found a character, earnest but not overly bright, who may not be far removed from my own. It's been a merry downhill run ever since.





So if you had been dreaming to fly a plane or becoming a pilot, this game will excite that dream.With flight simulator it is like a dream come true. Discover now if becoming a pilot is for you.


If they are rechargeable, then make sure they have a full charge. If they are disposable, make sure you replace the Marine VHF unit with fresh batteries (as well as stocking your boat with a plethora of backups). Next, turn the icom marine radio on and test out that it is properly functioning to ensure that you can make a SOS call if need be. You cannot be too careful with the above mentioned steps. Many times in our excitement for all of the fun we are going to encounter we tend to overlook the necessary precautions. Please prepare a safety checklist and make sure every item on the list is taken care of before your first trip out of the season.


If the new compliant radios are going to be that expensive to which some or many members can not purchase them then how can Cap perform its missions to the high degree it normally does? These question may have already been asked and answered elsewhere in this forum but please entertain me for awhile and let's open up a discussion about those new compliant radios and what the best possible solution may be.


Supply them with GPS Tracking technology. With the simple use of a Motorola GPS enabled radio you can deploy a mobile tracking solution that keeps you in touch with your aid workers 24/7. Not only can you communicate with them via icom communications (should the local infrastructure allow) but you can also use the integrated GPS transmitters to track positions of the workers at all times.


We soon realized that there was no salvation for the tiller except to clamp onto the head of the rudder post with a pair of vice-grip pliers for steerage. Since this required one of us to be near the bottom of the cockpit, with limited visibility, it was pointless to hoist the sails so we determined to motor across the Tangier Sound and up the Monokin River.


Read the manual that comes with your radio and practice using it before an emergency occurs. Have others on your boat learn to use the radio as well. Channels used in the United States don't match up with international marine channel assignments. Channel assignments unique to the United States carry the suffix A or alpha. Check your radio and there will be a switch labeled US/International, be sure it's in the right position.
