Re: UHF or VHF

Hi Richard UHF is your car radio, and VHF is the equivalent marine radio. GME is Australian made and seems to be a reliable, reputable brand - we have had no trouble with it. Uniden is an imported item which we have not heard any bad things about and Icom is another brand which has had some good rev...

Re: Can you spot the cacher?

Re: ACT - Senate Voting

Is it possible not to have a running tally of votes as they are cast and that the totals be published after the poll closes?

Re: Launching Australia's First Ever Mega Event-Wagga Wagga 2010

Thanks for the clarification - we must have misunderstood the information appearing in previous threads seeking expressions of interest in attending. :oops: It would have been good to see all your hard work rewarded by seeing the event listed each week in the Groundspeak notification. :x Congratulat...

Re: Launching Australia's First Ever Mega Event-Wagga Wagga 2010

Re: Launching Australia's First Ever Mega Event-Wagga Wagga 2010

When will the event be upgraded to Mega status and appear in the weekly notification from Groundspeak? Do you have to wait for 500 people to actually register to attend?

Re: 2009 Cyber Flash Mob Topic “Positive Caching Experience”

We get a positive caching experience when we are taken to new places which are picturesque and quiet - makes us feel good being alive and well.

GC down! What did you do?

Well we know what some people did while GC was down (glued to Jeremy's twitter account waiting for a blow by blow update! :lol: ) Some appeared to have withdrawal symptoms and were lost because they didn't have current PQs or GSAK to get the required coordinates for the day's caching. We were frustr...
