    I have some of these, as a commercial communications technician I got mine by default from Homeland Security for me and my team.
    I keep a copy with all our portable repeaters.
    A lot of the text (SMS and MMS) features may not work depending on the end users phone and service plan.

    It wasn't the mask, Thats somewhat common (weird to say). It was the argyle sweater that had me rolling. One swift kick to the nuts and that Obi punk will cower away. He used to tease me in Jedi school until I had enough. Take care.

    That guide seems like an invaluable reference. I hope I can find an equivalent guide for Australian radio communications.

    That's the reason Congress has mandated in NIMS (National Incident Management System), formerly known as "Incident Command System" specifies agencies use plain language and stop using the "10-Codes." Various agencies such as State Police, local fire depts, etc, will have different 10-Codes and creates major confusion at major multi-jurisdictional incidents. However, getting everyone to stop using their 10-codes has proven to be difficult.

    @ActontheActor usually 10-8 means "In Service" 10-7 out of service

    Its law enforcement 10 codes, 10-8 is "in service" 10-10, "out of service" 10-4 as you know in the movies is copy transmission. Google Cali 10 codes and you'll get the whole list. Good way to decipher what they are talking about using a scanner. I use it on my vids just to be a dork when I sign on and off.

    @GG, Bravo…just downloaded the pdf onto my phone, now I have it at least until I can get a hard copy from someone around here. 73

    @ActontheActor, once you get licensed I highly recommend downloading the Android app for APRS, great little program that will show you the ropes and give you full APRS through the internet capabilities right then and there. Then look into following GG's in depth how to's on hooking you computer, or GPS to your radio. A VX-7R is my only radio right now, it's great.

    @TruthWarriorFilms The travel GPS is interfaced with this box that converts the location data and a built in feature on the garmin called fleet management interface into sound the radio could transmit. Receivers and digital repeaters then gets the info and relays it to the web or other pc's not connected to the web. I'll make a vid showing the whole setup in detail later. too long of an explanation for the comments.
