In earlier pieces on sneaking up on wild ducks I have described something of the tactics of spotting and sneaking, and also on what one might expect to encounter. In this piece I will describe some of the `stuff' involved, and other stuff.
The 900 MHz Handies being made available now are 1 watt output, and require no licensing. They use a technology similar to cell phones called Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum. But they do not use cell phone repeaters! They are strictly line-of-site same as FRS motorola 2 way radio and GMRS.
One of the rules is that the hunted must count to 20 every 10 minutes. Through the use of the direction finding antennas mounted on the vehicles the group seeks out the hunted successfully. I mention this as an exercise in disaster preparedness. Can you imagine a group of people like this searching for you in an actual emergency. They may be seeking your food and supplies but either way you look at it it is not pretty for you.
Vought pilots had never seen nor worn crash helmets. Wearing them would give protection if at high speeds the plane hit an air pocket. When I put in a request for a hard hat, Purchasing could not find a supplier. The military had not accepted hard hats yet. When they did, such hard helmets were plentiful. But that was not until late 1946, several months after my request. For me, having played football at an eastern college, I was able to get surplus football helmets from my school's athletic department. The electrical shop at Chance Vought wired them for 2 way radio. That was as close as we got to hard hats. Although gaudy, they worked. I've kept (actually my mother kept) my primitive helmet, and it generates many questions at book signings.
All you need to do is scroll down, and it will show you what other people have bought, which you can scroll from side to side. And most of the time the accessories such as batteries will come up for these items. And for the two way radio, it has been shown that normally batteries and battery charger have come up.

Even Johnny Carson made a joke at the time, "the shuttle launch was being postponed until Sally Ride could find the purse to match her shoes." It appeared that a lot of people waiting for her to fail. Yet, Sally lived through it with dignity and encourages young women to follow in her footsteps to make a way for women to shine on this earth and beyond.
