Just out of curiosity, how would the individual stations get their own position fix data inside the cave? Are the cave maps good enough to get precision lat/lon for manual entry?

I'm about 4 hours away, but would be interested in participating. I 
have a TH-D72, a VX-8GR, and a spare TM-D710 that could be operated 
on battery power. It's been about 20 years since I've been in Mammoth Cave.

The Greater Louisville Hamfest is usually the first Saturday after Labor Day.


I think there may also be a hamfest at Bowling Green.
