Volunteer – Public Service Fish Rock _ Sign Up HERE
This is a UHF event. Your 2-meter radio won’t cut it.
March 9th is the Fish Rock bicycle event. Three hundred cyclists will depart Boonville, traverse to and down the coast, and return to Boonville. Find more info here:
This is an all-day event with riders starting from Boonville at 10:00 am and stragglers returning at 5:30 pm. Operators will close aid stations progressively and may depart for home from there.
Travel times are long, ranging from 1.5 to 2.25 hours from Santa Rosa, depending on location, due to distance and winding roads:
- Santa Rosa to Boonville about 90 miles
- Santa Rosa to Pt. Arena via coast about 85 miles
- Event course (a loop) 72.4 miles
This is a UHF event. Your 2-meter radio won’t cut it. (Oh, I guess I said that already… How about this? UHF = 70 cm = 440 MHz band…)
Weather (fog, rain, clouds) can impact UHF reception significantly so bring a UHF mobile radio (or HT with UHF amp, say 40W) and a good antenna. During clear weather, most sites can get by with a UHF HT, but be prepared for changing weather. SAGs will need a mobile radio on the more radio-difficult portions of Fish Rock Road.
Note to SAGs: Portions of Fish Rock Road between Tenmile road and Aid Station 3 aren’t paved, but sport well-graded dirt with minor-to-moderate washboards and a few potholes. Low-rider cars (under which you can’t roll a beer can) need not apply. (The Aid Station 3 operator can approach from Highway 128 via all-paved roads.)
Times and more details will be coming shortly. If impatient, contact your favorite psychiatrist, or, contact Fred AE6SF at email@example.com.
