my cab roof is starting to look like an antenna farm.

yea,my first year I just hauled food and diesel for a LMC 1800. Not must fun just running back a forth. The LMC lost electrics.

the two snowmobilers were got out at 1pm after spending one night freezing in a snow cave during a bad snow blizzard. it took a pb200 groomer to plow through the drifts and steep mountain hills to get to them.
sheriff may not approve of what your asking.

just finished the install today.
i'll have to bring my marine vhf handheld to talk to you. I know you use one.

Not sure if I remember any drum signals. maybe we could use the lights?
Now to get the snow to stop melting.

Too bad the EPA now forbids native American smoke signals.

yesterday
I think/hope we finished putting in donated kenwood 100watt radios in snow equipment . 3 cats,2 pickups,2 plows. the last one was 50 mile away.
this is for the snowmobile snow clubs contracted groomers for emergency use.
