Massachusetts State Triathlon – Winchendon – Sun 7/11/11 Needs Amateur Radio Volunteers

From the MMRA Email List and KC1US-Bruce Pigott:

Hi Folks,

We’re looking for amateur radio operators to assist with the Massachusetts State Triathlon in Winchendon on Sun 7/11.   It occurs from about 7am to 1pm (some assignments should secure as early as 10am, and most by Noon). This is an Olympic Distance Triathlon, with a .9 mi swim, 22 mi bike and 6.2 mi run. Registration often fills up.   The expanded course will continue, down into the centers of Gardner and Baldwinville.   This means our communications plan will involve using a variety of systems on both 2m and 70cm, including deploying portable repeater systems.   We will forward maps and details about the event to those signed up.

If you are interested, please send an e-mail to and let us know if you have UHF equipment with DCS / DPL. Thanks!

Thanks and 73,
Matt, NM1B
