Once again, members of LARC have heard the cowbells and risen to the occasion! LARC will supply race day comms for the run. Plans are close to being finalized, ops from LARC and surrounding clubs have been assigned (Thanks GSBARC and ISLIP!). On Friday, August 19, Peter, AA2VG, Steve, N2PQJ and Scott, AC2FV tested out comms on the course. If all goes as planned, Net Control will be at the Firehouse, closer to the action. Communication plans were also secured with Northport PD in case a situation should arise where PD is required.
For those ops who have signed up to help, soon a race comm kit (pdf file) will go out detailing race day plans, frequencies and map. Specific positions will require a 50W mobile rig in your car in order to be succesful with your communication.
And if that's not enough excitement, LARC will have a runner in among the herd on race day. Steve, N2PQJ will be racing the course. Take this chance to harass him as he flashes by!
LARC is lending a hand to the Northwell Health Huntington Hospital group to get their amateur radio communication system up and running. Currently the hospital has a HF/VHF/UHF rig, but the antenna system is in dire need of work. Peter, AA2VG, Ed, KD2ADC, and Scott, AC2FV have visited the site, and are in discussion with the hospital as to what their next step should be. If all goes as planned, a new 2M/70 CM antenna will be purchased, and a KD2ADC OCF dipole hung for HF comms.There is a possibility that a next phase would be to link up with Mather Hospital... stay tuned!
