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.

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
