As posted in other threads, I will be programming the Baofeng or Rugged radios you guys bought for this trip starting Friday (23rd) afternoon. Here is how that will work...

I rented a house in town and you can come by any evening to have your radios programmed. Call first so we can make sure we are home! I will try to accommodate your schedules and will keep my computer with me whenever we are in town. This includes any meet-ups, dinners, the party at Grandpa's Garage (TBD), etc. However, I will NOT be programming radios at the trail head before a run! You'll be punching in your own frequencies at the trail head!

Casa De LJ
3463 Tierra del Sol Dr
Moab, UT 84532

Save the address as Jackie and I will be hosting a party at our place at least one night during the week; also to be determined so as to not interfere with any official TJ Fest gatherings. Its BYOB but we'll have snacks, pizza, and other food.)

If you need a radio, go to Amazon and buy this... Baofeng UV-5R or equivalent. I'll be able to program the following radios... (UV-5, UV-5R, UV-5RPlus, UV-5R+, UV-5RA, UV-5RC, UV-5RE, UV-5RV2+. UV-5RTP, UV-5RI6+, UV-5RCx (2M/220MHz), UV-5X, UV-5Rx3, UV-5R III and the UV-5R3)

Or you can go to RuggedRadios.com and buy half the radio at double the price...but they work good. V2 or V3 is fine!

If your radio isn't listed above or I don't already have the software, and IF I have the cable that fits, I can download the software for your radio and it will cost you $25.00. You will keep the software since you paid for it and a cable will be mailed to you so you can reprogram your radio when you get home after the trip. But at least we will be able to hook you up for this trip.

There will be 120+ frequencies programmed into your radio. Your name will also be programmed in which appears every time you turn it on. You'll get...
All "TJ FEST" team frequencies
All 22 FRS Channels
All 30 GMRS Channels including repeaters
All 5 MURS VHF Channels
All 7 National Weather Channels
All KOH frequencies
All 45ish Rugged Radios pre-programmed race frequencies including Baja
3 - Moab ham radio repeaters (but transmit has been disabled unless you have a ham radio license)

Any questions?

Will the snack table take into account food allergies and gluten free requirements along with a vegetarian table for them that don't eat anything with a face? Vegan maybe? Will you have a sequestered section of the grill for my impossible burger with tools that have never touched meat?

If you have an LJ, are you even allowed at the snack table?

I have the software and cable for my rugged radios, I may hit you up for help if I can’t figure it out in the next week.

You forgot soy free :)

If my wife were coming, she'd need gluten, soy, dairy, meat free... :D (for medical reasons). to be honest, I'm not sure what the hell she eats!

I have Chirp on my laptop for my Baofeng. Are you indicating that you don’t have a file compatible with chirp?
That's correct. Chirp users will have to input their own data. Or...I'll program a radio using RT Systems and then you can suck the information out of it into Chirp. I've used Chirp out of necessity once, but never again.

Wait... I have an LJ Rubicon, but I’m gluten free. I can’t drink beer but Tequila is acceptable. If it has a heart beat, I will kill it, cook if and eat it.

Am I still welcome at the party?

Is the file for the other format a flat file that I can view on my computer?
