    Does anyone here have experience with aprsdroid osm maps? Scrambling to get my acer tablet to run it before a big trip and cannot find where I have a fault.

    1. Osm version of aprsdroid installed.
    2. Tile sets for a few states downloaded
    3. Files located in a folder named aprsdroid.map.
    4. Path in aprsdroid is storage/sdcard/aprsdroid.map/Wyoming.map

    Stumped as it does not load the map. Any u put is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I did spend some more time working on it. After setting it up on my phone, and locating the files in the same location with the same file paths on both my phone and tablet, I can conclude that the tablet has an internal problem with loading the map files. The phone works but the tablet does not with osm. The tablet, even though it can run the standard version of aprsdroid, with Android 4.4.2, will not run osm.

    That's my long way of saying I found my problem, and the solution is I need a new tablet. I'm open for ideas still though. Thanks.

    I like to use my Yaesu FT 8900R in my Truck for cross band. It puts out 65 watts. For when my HT can't hit a repeater.

    Not really other then extra battery or bring charger. The 3800 mAh Li-ion Batteries are awesome and last for days.

    I just saw this on a Toyota group on FB. Just posted.

    "Northern Colorado Amateur Radio Club is putting on an Amateur Radio Technical level class on Oct 29 and Nov 5; this class will run both days with testing on Nov 5 for all who would like. There is no fee for this class and we even supply lunch for everyone who attends, instructors must bring a sack lunch lol!

    This is a first come first service however there is room of approximately 60 students, so to sign up please reply back to this email or send me a note to treasure@ncarc.net. Hope to see you there."

    "The class will be at the Poudre Valley REA building near the I-25 Windsor exit. It's a class being held for the 4x4 community, but I believe it will focus on the Technician test. I'm not the class organizer, so I can't say for sure if APRS will be covered specifically."

    Didn't even know this thread existed until now. From Tucson, but going to college in Durango. Been up here for almost 4 years now and love it.

    Cool and Welcome, we seemed to have lost momentum in the Colorado HAM cert drive.

    That's a bummer. I actually took my tech test in Durango a couple years ago, there was a pretty good amount of other guys taking the test, but there aren't many testing sessions offered in Durango, once every couple months I think. I got some of my friends into the hobby back in Tucson, they looked up testing sessions, there is 1 or 2 a week.

    My take is they prefer the Snoopy teacher's, "whoomp, wah, whee" over clear crisp FM.

    I thought @Gramps hearing was too far gone so it wouldn't matter which band he used on the radio :notsure:
