Depends if I get one by then. Not holding my breath anymore...
I'll see, but right now it is doubtful. Contract at work just got won by a new company, so I have no leave built up. That and my Cup 2s are almost done and I don't know when I'll be getting my base wheels and PSS tires.
I have a Beofeng GT3. Even if you have an amateur radio license to transmit with that radio using it on FRS/GMRS or MURS frequencies is not legal. I do have mine programmed to RX those frequencies, but I blocked the TX out. I also have mine set to local police like a scanner, again, TX blocked.I have baofeng radios...I'm assuming they can be programmed to match the frequency of radios you're referencing. I'll check airbnb this afternoon to see if anything pops up, regarding lodging.
I've never used the baofengs conus...always abroad in areas where military equipment might stand out. That being said...are the FCC police going to hunt me down if I program it to whatever channel the groups using?
As Walker stated, unlikely anyone would chase you down over it. I mainly use my GT3 at races where we use FRS/GMRS radios with a subchannel filter set so that I can monitor the channel without the subfilter since they can interfere. I think the GT3 is more sensitive (better antenna) than the FRS/GMRS units we have so I can pick up weaker signals and get everyone to a different channel before it becomes an issue.If you want to keep it legal get a set of frs radios. That being said amateur radio is self policed and I doubt anyone will be hunting you down.

The Pure station near me only has mid-grade in ethanol free, all their other pumps are =<E10. I was running Exxon 93 without issue, but switched to 93 ethanol free from BP in Newport. I'm not a fan of fuel in the car. I'll do it locally for the mower or race gen, but that is about it. If I had a rear hitch and a basket that would be different.I appreciate the updates from the locals on the ground when it comes to the fuel situation in and around the Dragon.
Just to be on the safe side I'm bringing a couple of fuel containers in case they're needed.
I'm looking forward to visiting the PURE (No ethanol) 93 fuel pumps down the road and see how well the FoRS reacts to this.
For the time being Dewey appears to respond well to the Shell V-Power Nitro+ 93 octane fuel.
Another Fontana Village vote here. Great place and location.
And you ain't out running him.. he was pulling the fast bikes over too. I was out there Saturday afternoon and Monday morning. I was in the white, RHD & doorless Jeep on Saturday with the family and on Monday with my daughter's BF in his Subaru WRX. Saw a Celica GT-Four on Monday, if you like that car should be some pics Monday morning of it.Heads up. On the TN side motorcycle cops have been setting up radar at the bottom of some of the curves. They're hard to descern from a couple of bikers pulled over...be watchful.
Ps. GREAT brick oven pizza at Tapoco Lodge, about 10 min south of Deals Gap on Rt 129 (just past dam).
