What do you find most interesting about The Land Ops Adventure Group?

Combining technology with offroad adventures and various challenges. I've always wanted to learn more about HAM radio. Overlanding trips allow for more time to savor the beauty of the land and outdoors. The LandOps challenges bring out the best in you.

Do you own a vehicle you can take off road? If so what kind?

I have a 2005 Land Rover LR3 with Cooper Zeon oversize tires, rock sliders and under body protection, along with a Spot II satellite tracker.

Do you own a GPS device for geocaching? If so, what kind?

Garmin Oregon 450 with Topos from GPSFileDepot. I also have a Samsung Tab 3 with Backcountry Navigator Topo in addition to my LR3 NAV system.

Are you a licensed Ham radio operator? If YES, please give call sign. If NO, do use any other two way radio communications such as FRS/GMRS?

K6JKB General License. After being on the LandOp trips, I can see the benefit of having the Ham radio for offroad communication. Anytone Mobile in vehicle and 2 Wouxun HT's Licensed GMRS operator WQOX450.
