  5. Dear @Mahesh_, @Ishak, @Alphin Aloor it was a great pleasure to drive with you guys , i hope you enjoyed the Technical madness as much as i did. the weather was a bit windy which caused some limited visibility and combined with the moist sand underneath forced me to change some of my plan but at the end i think we practiced a lot of of technical terrains . @Ishak thank you for being our SL and i hope you figure out the tire leaking issue. @Mahesh_ i hope your boy enjoyed the ride , he seemed excited . @Alphin Aloor thanks for being our SW for the drive looking forward to see you Soon in the sand . check below the drive statistics and track
  6. Dear Friends , @Tareq Al Turq, @Mahesh_, @Ishak, @Alphin Aloor within less than 12 hours we will meet in the sand,. As always emphasized and required that everyone make sure of your car is in a perfect shape and have all your gear as per your rank. Meeting Point: https://goo.gl/maps/KGF6L8VwXMza3tJz7 Meeting time is 07:15 AM Sharp We will use Carnity Radio Channel 7. The convoy order will be as the following :
  7. In general there is a bit of a confusion when it comes the the general naming CB radio ( citizen Band Radio ) it is part of armature radio HAM radio. while the CB Radio is 11M band ( around the 27Mhz) technically this band is an HF Frequency. the Confusion that all the all onboard ( mobile ) radios are CB radio's goes back to the time when most of the cardo trucks in Europe used to have CB radio installed in their trucks to communicate together some still use it but as per my knowledge they have mostly migrated to VHF frequency due to better sound quality and less interference by the weather . Personally i have a radio in 2 of my cars one support VHF and UHF and the other support HF ,VHF and UHF ( You have to be licensed to be able to transmit more than 5 to 10 Watts ) the main difference and the usage of each frequency band: 1. HF can travel long distances across the globe if used at the right time ,right equipment's and location (it is called also sky waves as they propagate by the Ionosphere) . the disadvantage of HF is the poor sound quality and mostly there is a lot of noise accompanied by the transmission ( squelch function doesn't work ) 2. VHF better sound quality and can be used to transmit and receive over a couple of hundreds of KMs . for example with the unit i have in my car( without using a repeater) i can easily reach to Abu Dhabi Fujairah and sometime al ain , if the weather conditions are good i could also reach to KSA and Oman. works very good in open areas like the desert. Disadvantage of using VHF is its prone to direct interference from other electronics and equipment's for example light bars, fans connected to the same power source . Also, external interference from some generators or high voltage devices that might be around you . Also does not really works well in and between the buildings 3. UHF has the best sound quality with the least interference ( 446.XXX frequency range , Carnity Frequencies falls in this category ). it woks well within the buildings and in city compacted areas. Disadvantage of UHF is the short range of transmission usually a couple of buildings range and in open space it could reach between 4 to 30 KM ( if you got the right conditions) if you would consider installing a mobile radio in your car it is highly recommended to get licensed . Travelling with a Radio ( even the hand held ) to Oman is strictly prohibited even the 2 Watts and it could get you in real trouble , even if you have a license for your radio there is quite a lot of paper work to be done and not always you will get the approval . Saudi Arabia its a bit easier but also you will need to get the correct paper work done before you travel ( and you are not allowed to use it within the city range
  8. @Alphin Aloor minimum we need to have 3 cars for the drive to stay on . so far we are good .
