Re: Beginner help near Parkerville please.

Parkerville, WA?? You might get more rapid, local help on the WA Facebook group - this forum is knowledgable, but replies can take a while....

Re: Drone Cache (Split from original thread)

Amazing how many places drones are banned here in Tassie without permits (even with a RPAS license) It's the same everywhere.... we commit a Commonwealth offence it seems everytime we take ours for a test spin around our local park, in that we are within the range of a helicopter base that uses ins...

Re: My Query - filenames

Lower case a-z,0-9 would be fine! :)
Thanks for the explanation, I'll keep an eye out....

My Query - filenames

I may be missing something here....
What I would like to see is the descriptive naming of queries....
ie found-caches-home100km.zip, rather than 1234.zip

Is this currently possible? If so - what is it that I'm missing?? :D

If not - is it something that could be added?? please....

Re: Trigs with drones

Maybe we should have a drone geocache type where the cache is hidden using a drone and the find is made in the same way. Or there is a codeword on the cache that you need to make your log (with photo sans codeword as evidence). Hiding/physically retrieving with a drone would take some mad drone pil...

You were really difficult to see on first inspection but you have nailed it. Good on you for using this technology now to convince Mrs YOF I need one.
Love it!

Re: Trigs with drones

You can certainly get some good pics of those reservoir trigs! Nice to be able to back the drone out and see the whole perspective of the landscape and where it sits. Interestingly too, you probably had your photo taken in closer proximity to this trig than anyone else. Without a drone you have to ...

Re: Trigs with drones

The only fly in the ointment to claiming a Trig point is this. To log a find on the Geocaching Australia website, you will need to include a picture of the trig point, along with your GPS receiver and (preferably) yourself. Long distance / telephoto type pictures are against the spirit of this cach...

Drone Cache (Split from original thread)

I was gifted a nice little drone for Father's Day, and one of the first things that came to mind was spectacular team photos at elevated locations, the second was trig photos.... especially those pesky reservoirs where you can't see the thing..... Iluka today - I think we'll take it out again in fut...

Re: Be geocachers

Depending on the age of your son... younger ones, go for larger containers, lower D/T ratings (at least to start with), check logs to make sure they've been found recently and are in reasonable shape. Get some good footwear and a first-aid/snakebite kit, and hit the bush! Take snacks. Welcome, you'l...

My Query limits

I've been testing a lot with queries and GPSr symbols lately.... Am I going to bump into a My Query limit, in terms of numbers of queries etc?? Also - when making a query for a radius, if I leave the no of caches blank I get 100 returned, and have been inserting a large number to just get everything...

Re: My Query (trigs) - found status

Long time between replies.... I did get back onto this, and solved my issue (Garmin Montana/Oregon).... I'll post it in case anyone else has had the same problem. Trigs weren't displaying on the map well, whether found or not, presumably the term 'Benchmark' was not being interpreted by the device w...

Re: My Query (trigs) - found status

Sorry, its been a while.... I think I must get into this when we're in the Blue Mountains each year..... its too windy to do much today.... What I was saying - for a GC.com PQ for any given cache, the GPX file has the following: <sym>Geocache Found</sym> <type>Geocache|Earthcache</type> for a cache ...
