Chris Winczewski, K1TAT writes on the Cape Ann ARA mailing list:
We are looking for operators to staff the YuKanRun Triple Threat Half Marathon and 5K on Sunday, August 5, 2018. Please be on location by 8:00; starts at Rockport High School, 24 Jerdens Lane, Rockport, MA 01966.
Please let me know if you can staff a communications check-point for the event by August 3rd so I can plan staffing positions for the event.
While CAARA’s repeater performance has greatly improved with the replacement of our new antennas, the northern regions of this course may still experience some difficulty with communications especially with low-powered HTs, so we’ll be looking for higher powered equipment to staff those areas.
Please let us know what type of equipment you plan to use (ie: mobile; HT; ¼-wave mag mount; OEM rubber duck, etc.) so we have a better idea of where to locate you along the event course per the potential of your equipment.
The course will be open and supported by CAARA for four hours. Runner safety is everyone’s top priority.
Local EMT crews and ambulances will be available for three hours to help.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
Triple Threat Communications Team.
