Mobile phone signals in the back of beyond are no use and not exactly clip on and talk.
How important, not life or death but its organised club rides so some responsibility and its never good when people are wondering where others are that have had a mechanical/incident at the back.
Amateur radio exam - that aint going to happen, I have enough to do with day to day life and running the website, I just want to be looking aft the gate/rider at the back and be able to talk to the front.
From the suggestions what about reasonable radios, someone stands on top of the hill till the last radio arrives. Wouldnt they be able to act as both and act as repeater?
pugster - will take a look pal - after suggestions/recommendations. thanks.
