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.

    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
