Hi there, Would you recommend attaching a flag on the car for safety when travelling on the OTL track?
Is there a recommended UHF channel to listen out on while travelling on The Cape?

I wouldnt use a flag and channel 10 is the 4x4 channel.... But you will find so much traffic on the otl you will need your own channel...
The traffic this year will be HUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEE..........

Swoosh,

Leave the flag at home. You don't get enough high visibility for it to be effective and you will find it will cop a beating.

Most effective channel is to hang out the window and have a chat to drivers going the other way while you/they are pulled over waiting for they/you to pass. You'll quickly pick up the etiquette.

Have a great trip!!

The best action by far is to keep your headlights on and beware of idiots charging around blind bends. The top bit of the lower OTL has been widened significantly for a number of reasons, safety is one. Also some of the bypass was widened after a serious head on.

for the radio, I had my fixed unit on our groups channel, but kept a handheld on scan, was really handy for listening out to groups that were close, mostly along the bypass in the dust.
