Terrible Two Radio Support

Event Chair: Randy AA6RH

DETAILS:

Terrible Two – 18 June 2022

This is one of the toughest double centuries in the state and requires lots of good operating skills. It roams across two counties and over multiple mountain ridges, so radio support will be challenging (including the likelihood of simplex relays for SAGs). Leave your HT at home for this one.

As this is an all-day-into-the-night affair, we have aid stations (some with multiple shifts), a few NC shifts, and SAGs available. While traffic consists of informational traffic, we do transmit rider number and times – you will get a lot of traffic handling experience. If you want to visit remote parts of Sonoma County, SAG for the TT is one way to do it. TT starts at 0530 and finishes around 2300. 

We have five rest stops/aid stations as well as Net Control (start/finish). Pay close attention to start and end times for each slot below. The most time-demanding slot is Fort Ross (eight hours), while most are between five and six-and-a-half hours.

Radio Details

  • Operational Area: Northern Napa County, North and West Sonoma County
  • Operational Time: 0530 - 2300 (17.5 hours)
  • Repeater(s): Primary - Sonoma Mountain (146.730 - T88.5) linked with Sea View (147.975 - T88.5); Backup - W6SON (147.315 + T88.5)
