Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a two-stage geocache. At the coordinates given above you will receive the coordinates for the cache via your car radio

Park your car in the vicinity of the above coordinates and tune your car radio to 97.1 MHz FM. You will hear a series of beeps, short or long in duration, that represent numbers in Morse code. For example, one short beep followed by four longer beeps is a number “1”. Three long beeps followed by two short beeps is a number “8”, etc.
1 = . _ _ _ _
2 = . . _ _ _
3 = . . . _ _
4 = . . . . _
5 = . . . . .
6 = _ . . . .
7 = _ _ . . .
8 = _ _ _ . .
9 = _ _ _ _ .
0 = _ _ _ _ _

Fourteen numbers are transmitted. Decode the numbers to reveal the cache coordinates in the usual format:
42 XX.XXX 91 XX.XXX
Note that the decimal points are not transmitted. After the numbers are sent, there is a ten second pause and the transmission begins over again.

Parking for the final stage: from Blairs Ferry Road go North on Oakwood Ave until you reach the dead-end. Park there and walk North and East around the residential property. The terrain is more difficult in the summer due to high grass.
