We need Ham Radio Operators
2 meter mobiles and HTs

The Freeway 85 and 101 interchange maybe under construction !
This may effect the course and detours maybe used and need to 
have a radio operator present!
Looking for volunteers for the following assignments!

Need Operators who have 2 meter mobile units that can quickly be 
set up in Sag Wagon with more than 5 watts, ( quick power
connector and mag mount antenna), sorry a hand held just doesn't 
work out in the hills . I did some tests out in the Back half of the
50 miler, and my 5 watt ht   hit the repeater. So  if you want 
to try  a ht on life support ( lots of adapters ) , then  convince me.

Motorcycle mobile

Equipment already installed and ready to go.
Fixed Stations

A vehicle with a 2 meter mobile unit works fine.
Bicycle Mobile

Anyone wishes to try must have some kind of 2 meter rig.
Pedestrian Mobile 

2 meter Hts somewhere between Helleyer Park and Metcalf Park.
