All really good points Jon.
I wish we could keep everyone moving over to HAM and not have to run a CB too, but that is many years out I'm sure. Personally when I lead I do not run both radio's for the trail trucks. I fell I've got enough going on to sit there and relay info on two radios. I monitor the trails HAM frequency and the base camp. But all my trail talk goes out the CB to keep it simple.
The GPS thing is a good point. I use the coordinates screen on my NAV system. Its simple and easy to access.
