Terrible Two

Event Chair: Fred Seitel AE6SF ~ Pre-Event Comm Boss


Terrible Two 2019Terrible Two . . . This is one of the toughest bicycle double centuries (200 miles) in the state and requires lots of good amateur radio operating skills. We've got aid stations, a few Net Control slots, and SAGs available. While traffic consists of informational traffic, we do transmit rider number and times. New this year, the Santa Rosa Cycling Club (SRCC) will be using RFID tracking of cyclists at a few locations, so some stations will be passing rider times and bib numbers and others will not (TBD).
    If you want to visit remote parts of Sonoma County, being a SAG for the TT is one way to do it.
      TT starts at 0530 and finishes around 2300.
        Also this year SRCC has added a 200K ride for those that do not wish to take on the full course. The number of aid stations and the routes appear to have been finalized (5/7/2019). However, there may be some last-minute changes. Check the event website for additinal information. These are the current route maps (5/7/2019): Where are these places, you ask? Click on the coordinates to open up a Google map. Then click on the "Directions" button (on left side) to get turn-by-turn driving directions and a time estimate. And/or click on the "Satellite" map inset at the bottom left to get an aerial view. What do the Comm Boss shifts do? The Pre-Event Comm Boss is unavailable the day of the event, so that role has been divided into three shifts:
        • Comm Boss Shift 1: Bring and set up Net Control equipment. Run Net Control using an HT during 0530-0630. There is little traffic during this period because the first riders haven't reached the Calistoga Rest Stop. Supervise NC operators and interface with the SRCC event coordinator.
        • Comm Boss Shift 2: Supervise and coordinate.
        • Comm Boss Shift 3: Supervise and coordinate. Break down equipment (with help of NC ops) and take possession for later return.
        SAGs: In addition to signing up here, please also sign up on the SRCC website: SRCC SAG signup page
          If you are new to public service and want a no-pressure way to try it out, sign up as a Shadow and we'll pair you with an experienced ham. (Experienced hams may sign up as shadows too if there are many positions available...)
