The radios are only to operate when directing Rob(the ranger)in for deer recovery and emergency use,they have a very short range.Will do looking forward to it. The email says we are getting issued with radios and chargers?
Been there done that,got a satphone for this time!!!I'm going 19-23 Sep too. See you there.
Generally speaking, Vodaphone has the best reception on the island of Arran, but out on the majority of the beats mobile reception varies from poor to non existent. Hence earlier recommendation for sat phone, particularly if it's taken you an hour and a half to get to a good spot on your beat (which isn't untypical) the last thing that you want to do is waste time having to return to your last point with mobile reception to report in at lunch time.
