Short answer your to your question is your radio should be good to go,no tone,8w max power,and end Tx with "unit # * clear",I have never in 20 years heard anyone give out the call sign of the wolf watchers,just unit numbers,but again I say talk to the licence holder on proper operation under their licence and make sure that your radio is FCC Part 90 Approved

I hope I'm wrong and the incidents are not a return to the old policy of hazing away the roadside bears. I would be interested in your perspective after visiting the park. --Bill

I currently have a Baofeng radio, and use it for wolf watching while I'm in the park. Last year I got an approved unit number, and wanted to know if there is anything special I need to program on my radio to be able to transmit. I know the frequency is 464.500. Is there any special setting I need to change in order to transmit, or do I simply "press the button and speak?"

So sad that cub was lost -- same day as Obsidian lost one of hers, I think.

Yeah, unfortunately, the lighter faced one was killed by the boar harassing her.

All are very nice!
BTW....catching a PIKA posing is awesome. Those little guys, the mythical otters, plus a mountain lion are still on my "must see" list even after seven trips to YNP since 2004. Someday.
