EShop: Amateur (Ham) Radio Items
|As of Friday 17 November 1995 everything on these pages is free, Free, FREE! Actually, given the state of things with the migration of the beta trial to realware, things may never actually go back to costing token amounts. (See the Ancient (Web) History page for details. The failed purchase is worth a glance too.)|
imageRef("ecash-tiny"", "ecash", align:"left", hspace:"3")} The complete (and mostly accurate) guide to undocumented features and modifications of the Kenwood TH-78 handheld transceiver
Listings of municipal and/or special-use frequencies for:
Every town and city in California, USA
Yosemite National Park, California, USA
San Francisco's Fleet Week
Kaua'i, Hawai'i, USA
The owner's manual for the TH-78 is satisfactory, but it omits documenting functionality and modifications that extend the functionality of the radio. This, the "complete (and mostly accurate) guide to undocumented features and modifications of the Kenwood TH-78 handheld transceiver" reveals what Kenwood will neither confirm nor deny. A must-have for every TH-78 owner.

Complete lists of municipal frequencies (Police, Sheriff, Fire, ambulance, Special Weapons and Tactics teams, and other emergency services) are invaluable when trying to keep track of what's going on. Amateur "ham" radio operators, scanner enthusiasts, search-and-rescue folks, and emergency services workers will find these file useful to have while you're travelling (and working) around California.
Here are the (mostly) complete listings of California municipal radio frequencies. Because they're so large I've broken them up into several parts.
California, USA California towns, A through C (58 kb) US$0.50 Buy California towns, D through I (50 kb) US$0.50 Buy California towns, J through M (78 kb) US$0.50 Buy California towns, N through R (56 kb) US$0.50 Buy California towns, S (130 kb) US$0.50 Buy California towns, T through Z (48 kb) US$0.50 Buy
Located about 300 km (180 mi) east of San Francisco, Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular camping destinations in the USA (and with good reason). Framed by 1200 m (4000 ft) high granite cliffs, the Yosemite valley is a great place to relax but a frustrating place to listen in and communicate with the amateur "ham" radio operators and search and rescue teams that use the park's repeater system. This is a complete list of the frequencies used in the park; the product of many hours of backpacking and rescue practices.

Once each year, during Fleet Week, San Francisco celebrates its nautical heritage with visits by Navy warships, historic ships of all sorts, host-a-sailor events, and an air show featuring decades of flying machines, cumulating in one hell of a show by the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels acrobatic flying team. (Watching them practice all around San Francisco for two days before the show isn't too bad a fate either. Years ago they flew sideways through a pair of sky-scrapers.) This is the best list I could compile of the active frequencies used by the pilots, support crew, and vessels. Get more product information here.

Several years ago I had the exhausting pleasure of spending two magnificent weeks in the paradise we happen to call Kaua'i, Hawai'i. The weather was perfect, the Kona coffe superb (especially with Chocolate Macadamia-nut pie), and the scenery unforgettable (particularly along the Na Pali trail). This is a complete list of municipal frequencies I collected while there.
