Service Event – Heart of the Hills Endurance Ride

When: March 2nd and 3rd, 2013 0600 hrs briefing, 0700 event start
Where: Hill Country State Natural Area, Bandera, TX

Ham Radio support needed for the 2013 AERC Heart of the Hills Endurance Ride.
We will be providing communications and check point support during the event.
The team will be the eyes and ears of the Event Director by providing timely and accurate tracking of the horses/riders on the course and any safety/medical coordination as needed!

We have a briefing at 0600hrs at event control with enough time to disperse and set-up prior to the start.

Voice Communications will be on VHF simplex for the majority of the event. We do have access to an off-site repeater should HT communications be weak.

Packet: if you have portable packet capability, that is a plus, but not required! The set-up we use is similar to the Texas Water Safari program!

For more information or to volunteer, contact Louis – K5STX at k5stx at arrl dot com!

Hill Country REACT Team #4804 is the coordinating group of this event. All licensed Amateur Radio Operators with an interest in Public Service and Emergency Communications are invited to participate!

Thank You,
Louis – K5STX
