10th Annual Bandera 100K Ultra-Marathon – Bandera


Hill Country State Natural Area – Bandera, Texas


 When: 7th and 8th of January 2012


It is that time of year, to start forming the roster and making preparations for the 10th Annual Bandera 100k Ultra-Marathon held at Hill Country State Natural Area in Bandera County.

Tejas Trails Communication Group – Sponsored by Hill Country REACT has been the lead team for communications for this event the past 6 years with the assistance of many hams from the San Antonio, Austin and other areas around the state..

This event typically requires 15 – 16 Amateur Radio Operators in a situation that is similar to what an Emergency Communications Operator would experience in a disaster zone. UHF, VHF and Packet communications are involved in this event.

This is a fun event with challenges.  The participants of this event, are of a type you will not encounter at most other events we deal with throughout the year.  Over the years, we have made some lasting friendships!

Link to the 2011 Bandera 100 Communications Guide (not updated yet for 2012, but pretty much the same applies, except the dates)

Bandera 100k Ham Communications Guide

Interested operators should contact the Communications Safety Team Coordinator.

Clubs and Organizations are invited to participate as a group!  The adopt a station program has been a big hit the last couple of years.

Also, we are working on a special door prize item, which all participating hams will have their call sign put in a hat, and a drawing Saturday evening!
