USE OF CALL SIGNS

Tactical call signs used by all operators having marathon assignments and lasting the duration of the event. (e.g. MED#1, MILE POST 5: SHADOW)

Individual call signs used by all operators working the marathon following the FCC Regulation "10 Minute Rule".

Net Control Stations will identify using W4GS.

 

SET-UP TIME

Marathon Day Net opens approximately 0610 hours.  Operators will need to be at their stations in time to check into the net as it opens.  If, for any reason, you are not present at your assignment and are in route, have your radio monitoring the net frequency and check in when you station is called and indicate "in route".

 

OPERATOR NEEDS (Equipment, Clothing, etc.)

Handheld or mobile 2 meter radio;  magnetic mount antenna; sufficient battery power to last all day; if you have a dual band radio please bring it.  If you have a cigarette lighter plug-in for your radio bring it.  We start early in the morning - please be sure to dress warmly enough - preferably in layers that can be removed as the day warms up.  Bring your own food and snacks.  Medical station operators, be sure to locate within or as close to the tent as possible.

 

Clothing

Wear your Marathon Shirt prominently.  If needed, display the Amateur Radio Placards on your vehicle prominently.

 

Battery Packs

Any operator needing a battery pack may borrow one of our battery packs by contacting the club Marathon Chairperson at least one week prior to race day.  These must be returned to the Red Cross Offices no later than the Monday following the race.
