Walkie-Talkies

What has your personal experience been with walkie-talkies?
Not necessarily experiences involving water-warfare, but just on radio's in general and if you can remember, please say which model or brand you were using.

Thankyou,
WaterWolf.

Re: Dream Battle Grounds, 2008 - ^

Around a smallish lake, with lots of little islands scattered around it and surrounded by a variety of forest land. This would open up the possibility of Naval Warfare. Imagine, you could use small boats to transport troops across great distances, arm a battleship with WBLs and bombard targets on la...

Re: The Future of Water Warfare

I'd be fine with the eye-goggles mandate, especially if it would allow for more powerful weaponry to be fielded in tournaments. Just like paint-ball has helmets, the eyes are the most vulnerable to damage from water. Another, grander piece of my plan, is that once a society of water warriors is up a...

Re: The Future of Water Warfare

I'll try to keep mine modest: I have a dream. My dream is to oversee the growth of a strong network of water-warriors in New-England. Starting with Vermont, then expanding into New-Hampshire, Main and Massachusetts. This is not so much a "Hope" for the future, but my plan for it. It may seem like a ...

You know, with a little bit of work, I bet you could get a working clip on that thing.
Your rotating breach would be just right for a practicaly jamming-free loading system.

It would be better than a ball valve but worse than a solenoid in a launcher. Personally, I wouldn't use it in a launcher because I designed for soakers. But it should work well enough in launchers. Recently, I started doing some tests to compare a pneumatically operated solenoid valve VS a ball-va...

The bottles were chosen mainly for their light-weight. Getting the right pieces to adapt from 1/2" or 1" pipe to 4" sewer pipe would be quite expensive and heavy. Something to be noted is that should the bottles be crushed, they will almost always expand back to their original shape when you go to ...

Interesting. It would be nice if Storm came back into the running with some good guns. I recently got what appears to be an older equivalent of the Storm-500 and it is an excellent sidearm. Light-weight, high shot-time, good range, great beam-quality. Pretty sweet for a pressurized reservoir pistol.

Thats what the bike-tire valves are for, they are held in an open position so that suction is prevented and so is the issue you mentioned. I would have liked to use 1" PVC pipe for that area as-well, but if I did then the reservoirs were farther away from the PC and adding supports would be more di...

@Isoaker: Ya, I like it. One thing I would change is that I think that we only need one pipe plug, the upper one you put in. That way once can still fill the reservoirs from that cap piece in the corner. @LT. Col. Drench: I would like to get it more compact if possible, but It would make the whole ...

My team is still fighting and recruiting, but we will be going into winter hibernation soon.
I usually store my guns in a large storage bin like Cobra used, after following a similar routine as described by Isoaker's article.

@Cobralex297: Yes, although practicality is more difficult to gauge on an unbuilt gun, that is what I am aiming for with this design. It takes many of the technologies that have been developed in past years and puts them all together in a battle-practical configuration. Drenchenator has also recent...

Here is the awaited side-view for the 0.6.7 design. http://sugarmtnfarm.com/snowwolf/imagesarticles/SilverBulletV0.6.7SideView.jpg Something I have not added yet is that there will be garden-hose pipes leading into the reservoirs, (so you tilt the gun downwards slightly when pumping), and there wil...

The gun's approximate size in inches is 30" long, 8.5" wide and 11" tall. The current configuration is designed for superior balance while maintaining a good capacity. However, to get a very compact gun, you could pull the whole thing back into itself and give it just one 2000-ml reservoir instead ...

Or make a killing with one of these. As long as the terrane would support it. (Urban)

I wonder what kind of range it gets.
Then again you could probably mount practically any gun on that in a similar fashion.
