The majority of communications will support medical and emergency needs.  For example, a nurse or physician at a medical station on the course requests the ham operator to call for an ambulance.  The ham operator calls net control and passes the request.  Net control will pass the request to the City of Myrtle Beach dispatcher.  When the ambulance is dispatched, net control will call the operator in question and so notify.  The operator is to let net control know when the ambulance arrives and when it departs that location.  The same procedure is used when a runner drops out on the course and either needs medical assistance or transportation back to the finish line.  The only exception here is the "Drop-out Net Control" enters the communication.  The Drop-out Net Control receives the details from the ham operator on the course and passes it along to the Drop-out Official.  Then directs that particular ham operator to return to the Primary Frequency and report in that he or she is back on the Primary Net frequency.


Lead Runner Reporting:

This is not allowed, PERIOD!    You may indicate the location of the last runner in the race.  This is a result of an FCC ruling.


Operators are located at assigned points along the race course, which are indicated on the race map and the Aid Station location list.

Medical #1 is located inside the Stadium locker room.

Medical #2 is located along the right field line inside the stadium.

Other operators will be assigned to "Shadow" event staff; ride in race sweep vehicles, etc.
