Move me to tentative, got something that came up and I might have to miss it or leave early.

If we can push the cruise start time up to 9:00 AM I'd be able to do it, but I'd understand if you can't.

I'll re-do the map with the staging area built in later tonight. It would be the Tetco @ 71 & 620.
Of course, it should be fun trying to keep up.

I might have a buddy come drive with us in his Mini. You two can keep each other company.

Updated driver list.

One of my group leaders may or may not make it so - if anyone has experience with this route/area and wouldn't mind leading a group - PM me with your name and number.

R&R is never what ur subie needs, needs to be put through the paces to make sure it's still running up to par. maybe we'll pick up sumthing thursday for it.

does it have to be the same brand? I'm new to using radios, but if I have a midland radio i'll be able to find the channel yes?

Good question, some guys showed up on the SouthNTEC BRAZOS RIVER Cruise with VHF. . Not compatible. I don't know the correct BAND names, you'll have to do some research
Wikopedia:

A Motorola FRS radio with labeled parts Most personal walkie-talkies sold are designed to operate in UHF allocations, and are designed to be very compact, with buttons for changing channels and other settings on the face of the radio and a short, fixed antenna. Most such units are made of heavy, often brightly colored plastic, though some more expensive units have ruggedized metal or plastic cases. Commercial-grade radios are often designed to be used on allocations such as GMRS or MURS (the latter of which has had very little readily available purpose-built equipment). In addition, CB walkie-talkies are available, but less popular due to the propagation characteristics of the 27 MHz band and the general bulkiness of the gear involved.

Personal walkie-talkies are generally designed to give easy access to all available channels (and, if supplied, squelch codes) within the device's specified allocation.

Personal two-way radios are also sometimes combined with other electronic devices; Garmin's Rino series combine a GPS receiver in the same package as an FRS/GMRS walkie-talkie (allowing Rino users to transmit digital location data to each other) Some personal radios also include receivers for AM and FM broadcast radio and, where applicable, NOAA Weather Radio and similar systems broadcasting on the same frequencies. Some designs also allow the sending of text messages and pictures between similarly equipped units.

While jobsite and government radios are often rated in power output, consumer radios are frequently and controversially rated in mile or kilometer ratings. Because of the line of sight propagation of UHF signals, experienced users consider such ratings to be wildly exaggerated, and some manufacturers have begun printing range ratings on the package based on terrain as opposed to simple power output.

While the bulk of personal walkie-talkie traffic is in the 27 MHz area and in the 400-500 MHz area of the UHF spectrum, there are some units that use the 49 MHz band (shared with cordless phones, baby monitors, and similar devices) as well as the 900 MHz band; in the US at least, units in these bands do not require licenses as long as they adhere to FCC power output rules. A company called TriSquare is, as of July 2007, marketing a series of walkie-talkies in the United States based on frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology operating in this frequency range under the name eXRS (eXtreme Radio Service—despite the name, a proprietary design, not an official allocation of the US FCC). The spread-spectrum scheme used in eXRS radios allows up to 10 billion virtual "channels" and ensures private communications between two or more units.

I'm pretty sure I met Brianne while working at a junkyard in Austin, she came by looking for parts and we had a long conversation about Subaru rally sports!

If its a two way radio made in the last 5 years, chances are what you have will work. If not - I have a spare you can borrow.

I'll be there as well and encourage anyone who has never been to a Cobb event to attend. Great cars, great shop, great staff, etc.

EDIT: look for the pedobear sticker on the back of my Sti and come say hi
