    Baja sur(f)

    Well I missed your trip in March. Planning to go to Baja in late May for several weeks. Any suggestions on where to watch / photograph surfers? The doc you attached won't load properly but I got a glimpse of an itinerary and some mention of places to get supplies?

    Radio Recommendation

    The Midland MXT575 seems to be a good choice for a mobile unit but its release is either delayed or it is simply out of stock. What is a good alternative? What about a a handheld with an external antennae as an interim solution? If that would work, then I'd still have a hand-held for use...

    If you had to pick just one to start…

    There did not seem to be a consensus (why am I not surprised?) as to which "one" to start with. The one consensus I picked up on was that for emergency purposes a SAT device is the best bet.
