Default Ham Radio and CB frequencies for Cruise Moab

I would appreciate a review of the frequencies we've used for last year's Cruise Moab to make sure this is what we want to use again this year. Attached is the Trail Leader Schedule of Trails that includes the HAM and CB info. Please review and let me know if I should make any changes. I need to get this documents printed next week for packets. Your expert advice is appreciated.

Not sure on changes for this year, but really there is no reason to program all the trails. I would do 146.460 which has been the main channel, and then just punch in whatever trail you are running each day.

One reason is you can then scan them, only takes about 10 seconds to cycle through all of them.

Default CM2012 cb and ham frequencies

The frequencies are about the same as last year. Some changes as tip toe behind the rocks was replaced by Dome Plateua and the arches run will be on the same frequency as the e-hill trip. (but they probably won't hear each other very often if at all.)

The frequencies are not set in stone as we don't own the frequencies and other users may be using them too. That said, they are a good starting point and an effort to prevent confusion on the trails.

There may only be a single ham on each run too. Sometimes I try to drive to a high spot and contact each trail on their frequency. My success is mixed.

Remember to use the minimum power required to convey your message. In most cases, LOW power is plenty to talk to your entire trail.

Remember that the channel spacing in Utah is different than Colorado too.
The recommended channel spacing is 20khz, while it is only 15khz in CO.

I'll be monitoring ColCon when I can during the week, so give the GJ machine a shot if you think about it on runs and what-not.

QSX 40m QSS 7.235MHz +/-5KHz for QRM. QTU?
