Gran Fondo

Frederick ARES and the Frederick Amateur Radio Club will again be providing
communications support for the Gran Fondo Bike Race this year on August
24th. We need operators with a mobile or HT 2M rig willing to man the four
checkpoints (timing stations) during this event. Operations will be the same
as last year, and you can go to http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1363618 for
the times and locations (click on the green icons). Plan on using either the
MADXRA or FARG repeater systems.

While Gran Fondo isn’t a “non-profit” organization, we got a nice donation
from them which was then donated to the MADXRA group for the maintenance of
their repeater system.

For the locations with longer hours, we will try and limit the shifts to 4
hours. As always, you don’t have to be a member of ARES, FARC, or MADXRA –
just a ham willing to lend a hand.

Please let me know if you’re available. Thanks.

73,
Jeff Fishman KB3FIO
