RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

5G range is so short, a mile or two in perfect conditions that it will be kept inside large cities. This is only partly true. 5G uses both low and high bands. You are referring to the latter. Low frequency 5G is long distance capable. Downfall is that low averages about 20% faster than 4G. High band 5G is much faster but as you've stated short distance and easily blocked by your hand or thin wall.

RE: Get me out of here! PLEASE

Az89 from Prescott Valley to Clarkdale Why would you drive this route with a large RV? Besides warning signs against, this route is not the fastest. Sure its only 25 miles but 17 miles you're at 15-30mph. Faster to use 69/169/17/260. 45 miles but can drive 65mph the entire way. I've not had any trouble driving an RV to Tortilla Flat campground. Lots of RV's there. Road gets bad past that point towards Apache Lake and beyond where the road turns to dirt and narrows.

RE: Favorite place to camp to avoid the heat in middle USA

We stay most anywhere across the mountains of Arizona. Williams, Flagstaff, Showlow, Alpine etc. Dozens of high altitude locations where it generally has excellent weather in the 70's and 80's when Phoenix is 110-115.

RE: gps which one is best,second best

My Garmin absolutely sucks. I have to baby-sit it every time I'm in a city because it will take me on roundabout routes that make no sense. In some cases this could be due to having a 4 year old map Many Garmins include lifetime free map updates. My Garmin is 6 years old and I can still update it free. That said I have had nearly any GPS, or any map phone app give bad directions at times. I tend to know about where I am going. I never blindly follow a GPS route.

RE: gps which one is best,second best

I can tell you that two years ago I bought a Garmin 770RV GPS and I'm not very happy with it. I still like using my I Phone with the Waze app. I use my phone in cities. Garmin when on the road. Too many areas lack cell signal on the road or in remote areas. Garmin keeps right on working.

RE: Rest Areas in Az, CA

I think the ones in AZ are only for truckers. Best if you assume they are not open. One on I-40 and one on I-17 have been closed for years but are now reopened for truckers only. All others I believe are open to everyone.

RE: New Cell Phone Choice

I too had an S5. Worked well for all these years but decided it was time for something new. Ended up with the new S20. Had to change carriers in order to get a good deal. Two for one so cost was $500 each, $40 a month for 24 months. Since I am not 55 I was able to go with a senior plan that dropped my phone bill well below my old cost even with the cost of the new S20. WAY faster than the S5. Love it.

RE: Forest Service closes all camp grounds in OR - Sept. 30th

“In the USA they are counting anyone who died and had Covid a Covid death regardless of actual cause.” Please document your source, miles, and who are “they?” It has been stated numerous times. Most recently by Dr. Deborah Brix in last weeks Covid briefing.

RE: HBO free streaming for April

^ Oh - sorry - we have a Roku and didn't have to do anything except add the channel. So far we've been too busy to watch anything, but maybe... I tried that. Opened the channel and first thing it wanted me to do is create a log in and offered me a free introductory subscription, then wanted all my personal info and a CC #. I didn't bother.

RE: Forest Service closes all camp grounds in OR - Sept. 30th

“This is getting out of hand.” What? It’s “out of hand” in Illinois...19,180 infected and 677 deaths. Oregon doesn’t want to follow Illinois. In the USA they are counting anyone who died and had Covid a Covid death regardless of actual cause. That isn't the same as other countries nor is it the same as they did with H1N1 or other global viruses in the USA.

RE: Forest Service closes all camp grounds in OR - Sept. 30th

The last time the parks were left open with few to no enforcement on site, the public trashed them. Just maybe you and I need to support our leaders in this case. This is what they've done in many Arizona state parks. No day use of the parks, hiking trails etc. All visitor centers and facilities are closed. Park open only for those with site reservations.

RE: Forest Service closes all camp grounds in OR - Sept. 30th

IMHO it is better to be safe than sorry. It is possible the shut down can be amended at a later date. Keeping the majority public safe outweighs the freedom (camping at that) of the few. Except that this is not the first pandemic we've had nor is it the worst. We never went to these lengths any of those other times. The 'cure' can easily be worse than the cause.

RE: OTR Indoor Antenna

I use this one from Clearsteam. It's available at Walmart or Bestbuy as well. I live about 40 miles from the nearest towers and it picks up everything perfect. I like the small 20" size. Never found any indoor antenna that would work very well.

RE: Closure Threads

Most state RV parks in Arizona remain open. Visitors centers and group sites are mostly closed. From the few parks that are closed it would appear it's related to type of park. The ones where sites are very close to each other are closed. Those that are spread out far apart remain open. Developed forest service campgrounds are closed. Dispersed camping is open.

RE: Leaving out of Gold Canyon, Which way to Flagstaff?

Ellsworth to Bush Highway to 87. Turn at Clints well onto state route 3 (Lake Mary Rd) to Flagstaff. There is an 11 mile grade heading into Payson. It is 4 lane, divided. From Payson to Pine/Strawberry there are a few shorter grades but aren't bad. After that it's fairly flat to Flagstaff. Very scenic drive. Check weather. Snow is forecast today and later in the week. During day time hours it probably will be to warm to stick on the roads.

RE: Win 7 Question

I know the issue very well. In the industrial world its common to create custom hardware and software. This can take years and 1000's of hours of labor. Each time Microsoft comes out with a new version of Windows it has HUGE compatibility issues. MS changes major technologies calling them improvements. Backwards compatibility is unimportant to MS. The average person at a business or at home doesn't understand. They run mostly off the shelf software that either runs fine or is inexpensive to upgrade. I still have some software that requires XP. It uses MS Java libraries which MS removed from Windows 7/10. I haven't had the time to completely rewrite it for .NET. A major costly project.

RE: The Coronavirus

Did anyone change their camping plans in 2009 during H1N1 outbreak? Millions infected, a few 100,000 deaths worldwide. Nuff said, I'm going RV'ing and turning off the news and media!

RE: Sedona AZ help with RV park suggestions

Rio Verde RV park in Cottonwood/Clarkdale is small but very nice. Verde Ranch RV Resort in Camp Verde is new, large and very nice. Don't confuse with nearby resorts with similar names (Verde River RV, Rancho Verde RV) Distant Drums RV in Camp Verde is nice. A few spots are tight to get into.
