    My Kenwood THD74A was stolen at approx 20:00 hrs 7/23/2019 From the parking lot of the On The Border restaurant in Elk Grove, CA , along with my laptop and tablet....dummy me left my backpack in the car under a blanket...Came out to my window on my seat and my backpack missing.

    APRS is on and reporting my callsign (AI6RA) near S San Joaquin and E Worth Street in Stockton, CA. Thankfully the dummies don't know what they have. Elk Grove PD and Stockton PD have been notified.

    Any info or if it turns up please contact me at

    Always wondered if blanket was better than umbrella policy. Guess not, at least in this case. Hope you are able to recover your equipment!

    Well the restaurant doesn't like the bad publicity and would like to cover it up.

    I put my backpack in the trunk so it's completely out of sight.

    Hope you get your stuff back. Would this be the first time APRS solved a crime? Interesting!

    Just curious what came of this since you knew exactly where your stuff was. Did the PD bother with it?
