    Hello All,
    I’ve got another event coming up, this time the Human Race on May 10.

    This is another fun, easy, low-stress event. All but one position are HT-friendly. Radio operators are very important to this event, as the organizers have no other reliable communications system on the course. Our bicycle units are the only reliable method available to them to investigate reports of issues on the course, including a few medical emergencies we dealt with last year.

    Positions Available:
    4 water stations (3 HT-friendly, 1 requires external antenna)
    2-4 bicycle units (fairly level, easy course mostly through Spring Lake Regional Park)

    I also need 2-4 APRS trackers or APRS-integrated HTs, depending on how many bicycle units I can get.

    We will be meeting at 6:45am at Net Control, Herbert Slater Middle School, Santa Rosa. We will be done around noon, earlier for the first water stations on the course.

    If you’re able to volunteer, loan an APRS tracker, or both, please reply to this forum thread or email me at ki6zon@me.com

    Thanks and 73,
    Sutter KI6ZON
    Human Race Communications Organizer
