GeoGearHeadsRock Chalk joins The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 for the two hundred twenty-ninth edition of the GeoGearHeads. The first story was "SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE; GPS registers most accurate signal yet" followed by "GPS World: SpaceX awarded GPS III satellite launch contract." Next, Starkacher asked about a listing of smartphone geocaching app. We pointed him to GGH203 and Darryl's list of GPX compatible smartphone apps. JerseyEric asked about sleep modes on modern Garmin GPSRs and mounting one to his bicycle. Garmin's own Bike/cart Mount and the RAM Mounts were recommended, plus GGH176 for more about gear on your bike. butrflygirl asked about accessing offline lists in Cachly and Wet_Coaster asked about centering maps on the GeocachingĀ® apps. Team Dastardly sent in audio about issues in his area with someone stealing or vandalizing caches. Finally Dogliest Cache wanted opinions on territories. Before we wrapped up Rock Chalk shared a little about the Celebrate Get Outdoors Month 2016 which will be open to all cachers on June 11th.

GeoGearHeadsThe Bad Cop, debaere, LANMonkey, and Sherminator18 talk about the world of podcasting for the two hundred twenty-eighth edition of the GeoGearHeads. The Geocaching Podcast Profile series has been talking with various Podcasters about their experiences. LANMonkey suggested looking at Samson USB microphones or a Blue Yeti for Podcasters looking to get started, then Audacity or Garage Band for recording and editing. DarrylW4 left the recommendations of a Sennheiser PC 8 USB headset or Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB micro and Audio-Technica ATH-T200 headset for the solo podcast host. For those looking to do multiple hosts in the same room, something like the Sennheiser MD 46 microphones, Mackie 802VLZ4 mixer, PreSonus AudioBox interface to the computer, and Sony MDR-7506 headsets to build out the rig as needed. LANMonkey talked about hosting through Archive.org and Libsyn. Podcast Producers will want to register their show with iTunes through iTunes Podcast Connect. Some of the means for live connections mentioned were Google Hangouts on Air, Blab, Ringr, and Skype.

Congratulations to Astronut for the winning the drawing. Thanks to CoinsAndPins.com for their donations of this week's gifts!
