Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
Not really high end gear, but something that I am going to try.
I have my ham radio license and I have a very high end kenwood handheld radio (TH-D74A) that has built in APRS.
APRS is a system that uses a gps and a packet of data sent over a ham radio frequency that lets others track your position.
I don't want to risk losing my expensive kenwood in a vehicle break in, so here is what I am going to try.
I have a cheap baofeng handheld radio, with a magnetic vehicle mount antennae
I just purchased a cable to connect it to an old android phone with a built in gps.
I have downloaded APRSdroid onto the radio, and this will control when the radio send out the packet information.
The phone is old and has no sim card in it, it is just used for the app and gps.
Anyone can go onto the website aprs.fi and look up my position on a map as long as they know my call sign.
I am really interested in seeing how this works
If the US government wants them extinct then they already are. Interesting theory,but highly unlikely. Of course the more plausible theory is the creature does not exist .
Perhaps,at one time they may have and modern man drove them to extinction or decreased numbers that they are no longer a viable breeding population.
Existing in small numbers in the dark forests.
Yes, #4 is vicious! I think all of them would surprise people. #3, a softer grunt-bark, is similar to what I heard outside the other night, as my dogs were running to the edge of their pen. I have no idea if a deer made it, but hearing it on the video at least gave me a hint.
