Cell Phones/Radios on Rainy

Recommended Posts

I know there was talk of cells not working on Rainy, will the handheld radios work or should I have a permanent installed? What are the rest of you doing?

I think we should at least be able to have roaming coverage in case we need to make emergency calls. We don't have a radio either, and radios may or may not work due to potential distances between boats.

We shouldn't need any immediate on the water verifications, muskie is not open. But I could still see it for a huge 12+lbs walleye or a 20+lbs pike. And for that purpose we should at least be able to make a roaming call if needed.

I could make up a bunch of laminated sheets with everyone's cell numbers on them if you think that would be of any help. What do you think?

Sheesh that sure would beat the back of a deposit slip that I used last year!

My cell is 612-618-1694 if you decide to do this!

I just wanted to add that if you don't feel comfortable with posting your cell phone number here, feel free to email it to me. By the way, any idea how many of these I should make up?

Mark, there are 10 teams, so 20 people. I would make some extras. We really only need one per boat, but some extras would be good.

Just make them small though, would be nice if they would be the size of a credit card and fit in the wallet. smile.gif

Thanks for the tip, Grabs. That's what I was already planning on doing. I'll make 15 of them unless someone thinks we need more.

I have a hand held marine radio someone can borrow. You need 9 AA batteries, with a spare set if you use it a lot. Good for at least 2 mi, maybe up to 5 by line of sight.

Team Frandowski cell phone number is 651-247-6053.

Bob, I think you have a Hummingbird handheld right? If so I have the 12 Volt Power cord and maybe we will use that. Taking Cory's boat and he hasn't gotten the Marine Radio installed in it yet.

I have each team's cell number(s) except for Team Clueless. I'll be making these tomorrow, so if you want your number on it, try to get it to me by tomorrow morning. Tom and I will be on Rainy early thursday morning. If you come up before Saturday and want one early, just look us up. Thanks!

Paul,
The radio is yours to use. I have the dc adapter also. The problem I have had is that the radio has "clicking" static from other electronics. I have not experimented enough to see if connecting to different batteries helps (I have 3 separate batteries), or even just moving the radio to a different part of the boat may help.

Hey mwchiefs - neither one of the Clueless team members owns a cell phone at this time.

I finally got my marine radio hooked up today though, so I will keep that tuned to 69.

Thanks anyway.
Maybe by the next tourney we will have a # to add. Will keep you informed.

No problem at all, Clueless. I just wanted to avoid leaving anyone out. Looking forward to seeing everyone again, and meeting the new additions to the league, on Rainy.

    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
    • That's why I remain in the adapt and live with it and hope for a solution that doesn't destroy our already sub-par deer hunting in MN. (and fishing when it comes to aquatic invaders)
    • i use the same husky bag for my helix setup works great.
    • Ice Team partnered with Navionics for a handful of online webinars.  These are pretty cool.  I thought the HSO group would get a kick out of them.  Not always easy to make all of the seminars in-person, especially when you live across the country from some of them, so these webinars offer-up a unique opportunity.  Here are the details on the ones coming up if anyone is interested...   When: December 11th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: How to Attract Fish to You on the Ice with Mark Martin. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7012356799514703874?source=Navionics+News    When: December 19th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: Improving Your Lake Trout Ice Fishing Tactics with Bernie Keefe. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/82867287788632833?source=Navionics+News     Enjoy!
    • Nice set up. Husky also makes a lunch bag that seems to work well for ice fishing electronics. I reinforced the top lid to support my tablet and put a switch, 12v outlet & 3 port phone charger to one side. I like the extra storage on back for cables and 2 water holders for my chargers. Use the 9ah 12v lead acid battery for power. Has carry handle when closed.
    • You guys may be right.  May as well start draining every dam lake with invasive species in it to make sure it's stopped, cut down ever dam Ash tree, start shooting every Sparrow, Pheasant and netting all the Smelt out of Superior that will take some time. But we can do it!!!  Insert crazy emoticon here: 😵
    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.
