Because mobiles we use everyday and it has become boring. Walky-Talky is something new. Atleast for me. Never used it before

AP,
1. Mobile is not free
2. coverage may be intermittent
3. its one-to-one whereas walkie-talkie (radio) is generally broadcast with send/receive selector.
4. a convoy can have better fun talking on a proper radio set with everyone else
5. no need to dial like in case of mobile (which is risky while driving.) all that needs to be done is to put the set to transmit and speak out
6. It will give some excitement like being in a armoured convoy and also the lead car can inform others about road condition, things to see, nice scenes, photo opportunities in advance...

I think its a good idea...But I hope they are professional sets? Like the ones with security staff at offices at least? The kiddie toy ones are really not worth it...

it would be really great fun if we had such conversations! maybe we can use the walkie talkies to communicate between groups of cars rather than one in each car.
Of course, it depends on how many people end up at the meet.

Perhaps they would be better in a maze of roads as against one headed in a single direction. If the range is less, then we might have to fall back on the mobiles or the ever reliable roll-down-window-and-ask option

@ashishpallod, this exactly the plan. Just imagine the fun!

BTW, the walkies are for professional use, they rent it to event managers. Not kiddie stuff. Well I have never seen an event manager with a kiddie walkie talkie so far. Need to check.

I guess that closes it. They'll definitely be the good black ones in that case. LOL @event managers with kiddie walkies

Sounds great , its a must for lead car & specially for the trail car


Will work to keep the group together on longer drives ( exceeding 100 kms & overnight halts .

Its Good for emergencies too .( hope they never arise ) & it will provide security .

Walky talkies will be awesome.We can have the typical jokes where someone says "Roger that" , so the reply will be "Arey Roger kidhar hain".
By the way Adventure Plus is a strange venue for a T-BHP meet. Its OK but will be very hot now with the onset of fiery April. A hill station would be an ideal venue. M'shwar would be better albeit a bit far

@shridhar - good one!

@ambivalent,
Mahabaleshwar isn't actually too far. Around a 2 hour drive from Pune. Road is great. The problem is, this time of the year, Mahabaleshwar tends to be a burner worse than Pune. Its pretty unbearable out in the Sun even there. Still, its a great destination for us nonetheless. IF we are ok to park our cars at table land I don't know any "points" (i mean like Arthur's Seat, Elephant head etc.) where we can park such a large convoy.

BTW, it looks like the 2-way man-portable radio set has hijacked our main topic and discussion about the date, venue of drive

Regulars like Swanand are getting quieter. Looks like next delivery sprints are on in IT co.s.

Walky - talkies are going to create a laugh riot i guess.

By the way guys i think we need to freeze the date first. I don't know how a poll can be created in an existing thread so have PMed the moderators about it. Is anybody aware how it is done. Maybe we can have a quick poll for the dates - 3rd April, 9th April or 10th April.

@Reinhard: Im very much here. Laughing my backside off after reading the imaginative ways of communication on the Porty's. Bravo AP and Sridhar!.

I mentioned yesterday (or the day before) that, if it is the 2nd April wala weekend, then I am out for sure. If it is the 9th wala weekend then I am all game!

Like Amit said, lets create a poll and finalise the dates and then zero in on the destination. What say people?

Swanand > 9th April week end suits me too. But still TENTATIVE. I agree that Mahaby will be hit this time of the year.

9th or 10th is OK for me. Please rule me out for the 2nd, as there is no car in sight yet. Also not sure if my bike would be serviced till then.
I dont want to use my wife's Kinetic Sym Flyte.

Is this a family meet or only us guys? If its a members only meet, time restrictions would apply for me!
