    Another view from within the same mine. When the miners found a large deposit profitable ore, they removed large pockets of it leaving areas resembling caverns called "stopes". This stope was mined...

    This mine was also in the same range as the mines above. It has one of the tallest headframes in the area. It stood about 100 feet tall and had 4 sets of stairs built into it. The purpose of the...

    This was one of the oldest air compressor systems we've seen in the mountains. It's difficult to gauge size from the picture, but the motor on the left measured almost 4 feet long. The rivets used...

    This structure was near a mine. It was well ventilated with retrofit PVC pipe and appeared to have fire damage inside. It may have been a cabin or storage room that caught fire or possibly even a...

    I'm unfamiliar with these. If you visualize them upside-down, they would appear to be a funnel system, but I've never seen a dual funnel set-up. Much of the equipment used by miners was custom...

    Another view within a nearby mine. This shaft went down about 200 feet before ending abruptly. Because of the dry conditions, the wood and shoring within a mine can appear to be solid and they most...

    I was able to locate a few pictures of a similar tractor, but little else of this Isaacson Tracdozer. It appeared to be in great shape without a single bullet hole. Without knowing anything of the...

    Within the same range of the previous mine, we came across this. It was well up and inside a mountain and many yards underground. They went through great efforts to get it in there. I'm not sure...

    More Vegas Day Trips.

    All of the following pictures were taken within an hours drive of the Las Vegas Strip.

    This was inside a mine near the California/Nevada border. We were several hundred feet into the mountain and...

    I was mistaken. I thought I read somewhere that anything below half watt on GMRS was usable without a license. Here is what the FCC has to say about it:

    "If you operate a radio that has been...

    Going off memory here, but I believe the GMRS handhelds you can buy at Walmart and other retail stores have a half watt limit with fixed antennas. That would make them legal for use without the...

    If there are enough people in your area with CB's and you have the range to reach them, then great. If it makes you safer, do it.

    Not sure what is happening. Are you guys arguing about CB's?

    Thanks for the great info, Crom. Yeah, I definitely will not be renewing my GMRS license. What a waste of money that turned out to be.

    Abuse isn't being advocated. Safety is. If someone has an "illegal" form of communications that could potentially save their life or another, bless them for being prepared.

    Not sure if removing the GMRS license requirement would be good or bad. I know it would annoy me that I wasted some money, but a little more GMRS traffic would help. Because the GMRS handhelds are...

    The cleanest antenna install I've seen on any Jeep had a folding mount secured to the top of the driver side A-pillar. In the folded position, it lay parallel to the top of the windshield, but only...

    I completely agree with you that you don't get much for your money with GMRS licensing, but there appears to be a push to remove the GMRS licensing requirement. Because that legal ball is in play...

    Not much difference as it relates to this discussion, but I'm sure he appreciates you pointing that out.

    Not supposed to mod, but ham's are constantly modifying their gear. Part of the fun of amateur radio is seeing how much you can get out of your gear.

    Or you could easily mod an existing ham mobile to Rx and Tx continuously in 420-470 mhZ which covers GMRS.

    I know quite a few people with ham mobiles who do not have a ham license. It's not illegal to purchase or own a ham radio without a license, but it is illegal to transmit without a license. The...
