ARFHAMS

Since this is pretty well established - if you would like to join I need the following information:

ARFCOM screen name
Call sign
latitude (as accurate as you'd like)
Longitude (as accurate as you'd like)
Grid (6 digit)
station capabilities (VHF/UHF/HF - HT only, SATCOM, Digital, Voice, CW.....etc)
Preferred Email address


Any suggestions please post them up.... Below is the current map showing our locations (and giving you an idea of what we're working with) - as of 12/20 we're sitting at 65 people from this forum on there.

A link to the KML file, jpg below and excel database gets emailed out to everyone who gives their information - remaining as confidential as we can be and not shared outside the group. If you have just given your information please be patient, I'm trying to update this weekly if there are changes and you will receive an email, plus this thread will be bumped back up to the top.


UPDATE

2/20 update:

I would prefer it not to be hosted on Google, but then all my info is already in the fcc database. What about seeing if the same person that host's the emcomm freq card can host it?


I'm sure you thought of this but use different colors for capabilities, I can't remember if email was one of the data points or not but I wouldn't mind having my email on it.

I like the idea of color coding and adding emails for sure.....



problem with "keeping it off google" that I just thought of - we're mapping in google earth........ also, if the file gets emailed to someone on gmail, they have the file saved anyway

6 character grid squares narrow it down pretty far without an exact pinpoint.

a 6 character grid square maps my QTH in south NJ - out of VHF range


center of town - or even county - is anonymous enough but WAY more accurate

Center of county would work for me, but would be exponentially more inaccurate in my situation. I'm sure there's not going to be a perfect answer though. To be perfectly honest, I'm still kind of mixed on the whole idea...but considering it.

ETA: You can't talk across a grid square on VHF? mountainous/hilly/heavily populated? Looks like the size is 3mi x 4mi. So I guess depending on geography, completely plausible.

when I mapped a 6 digit grid square in GE it put me almost 30 miles off -

I don't see why a lat/long would be an issue - stick your pin wherever you'd like, just give me a lat/long for where you want that pin..... again, you get to choose where would be best for your situation.....

Will the info be PM with a link or emailed with a file attachment? Sorry, I'm not exactly too familiar with Google Earth/Maps...

also some confusion with the "public" question


by public I really should have put private...... none of this info is going out to anyone who doesn't give info first. That question was more a "I don't want to participate" question...... (it's been a long night)


to those who sent info already - if that changes anything let me know...


if you want to participate just send me a yes PM and I'll reply with how to send me your info - this way I can keep it all straight.

If I have your stuff already, no worries.....

*edit*

if you didn't give me an email address please do so as well

if you haven't sent info yet and would like to, either a PM or just post "I'm in" in this thread and I'll PM you instructions


here is my example:

Screen Name-----Call Sign ----- Lattitude ----- Longitude-------------------- Grid ---------------------------- Capabilities -------------------------------- Email
NUCdt04 ------- *************-----39.949232 ---- -75.306463----------------- FM29** ----------------HF (80-10M) SSB and Digital, VHF/UHF FM--------------****************@gmail.com


that probably won't format well.... you get the idea

if you look up the lat/long you'll see, it puts you at the center of my town.... anonymous enough for me

For your lat/long


download Google Earth (if you don't already have it - you'll need it anyway for this)

find house
be amazed at how much detail there is
find neighbor sunbathing nude in their backyard
shake your head when you realize it's the husband
figure out how far away you want people to think you are from where you are
drop a pin (yellow push pin on the top bar)
move it to fine tune
copy and paste what's in the box that pops up





you can also walk outside with a GPS if you'd like - decimal degrees are best

Don't really care if public or private as few people know are care to be looking for me.

I would rather give Nuk the info and get a file in return.

I've sent the info to Nuk, hope to get a file in return, but I'm good with any group final decision.

Far as I can tell, I'm the furthest away on the Left Coast, way down in So Cal, bout as far as I can be from the majority, distance and timewise.

Info sent. I'm fine with sharing it "privately", I just don't want it to end up in Google search results someday.

So far everyone who's sent me info is on the list

I'll add a list of who in a couple days.... I'm hoping to have first draft out in about a week (I could pop it out in like 10 min but figure why keep pushing updates)

as far as publicity - the file will always remain with those who've added their info to it.
