ZSNY Ham Radio Practice Camping Trip?

Post by Jamie » Thu Apr 19, 2012 7:30 am

Howdy ZSNY!

I am playing around with my Ham radio stuff a bit more these days, and would love to get together for a camping trip, and maybe mix a hike or paddle or drive in to the mix to test out gear and repeaters and using comms in the field...

I'd be happy to do it up in my AO, and have ideas about some cool spots, but would be equally happy to do some driving to other parts of NY for a change...

Any interest in setting up something along these lines for some weekend in May or June?

I would love to. My calender is full in May but completely empty in June. I would prefer a friday/saturday trip but thats just my 2 cents. It's just that sundays do not work for me.

I'm not into the Ham radio thing, but I could use a weekend away from it all.

I would rather a hike than a paddle trip.

If we are looking to get out of the Dacks and get in a hike there are always the Finger Lakes Trail section hikes. The Mariposa Forest Section is the longest section of wilderness hiking (no on the highway travel) and is South of Syracuse and East of Cortland.

A trip into the Catskills could be a nice change up too if anyone knows of any areas down that way.

If I had to guess, I'd say that being eXtreme means you're a pussy but hiding it behind enthusiasm.

Sounds like a fun idea. Things are kind of on hold atm until the cabin gets rebuilt in late May, but June/July are looking nice and open.
