nice weather out for a bike ride, homie.

btw, where is that internet being piped in from?  Miami-Dade ambulance pays for some wireless access in their ambulances?

how long does the event go on for today, bro?  sounds like a pretty big event.  how many riders?

pretty busy on the repeaters today.  quite the job you signed up for.


ETA: where's that net control ambulance sitting at?  you guys downtown, or down in Homestead somewhere?
Link Posted: 3/7/2015 3:46:43 PM EDT
Yeah, pretty busy lol.

Plus we always have that ONE rider who will tough it out, dragging out everyone's time, 2 hours past the end, only to quit 15 minutes from the end.


Currently there is ONE rider holding up the tail end

QSL.  let me know when things quiet down & is a good time to call in with an ARFCOM radio check.

Well, that ONE rider is now getting a ride to the end

We still have riders on the course but they're much faster than this ONE

Should be done soon.

Are you using APRS? We found it extremely helpful to track tail and SAG vehicles via Depiction and APRS. Ride officials loved having a picture of the event and it streamlined dispatching the closest vehicle to an incident.

arfcom repeater shoutout complete.  enjoy the rest of your weekend, homie.

There is lots of room for APRS.

As it is Race Command had Verizon jump in and provide cell phones of some sort that included some big brother option. Verizon also has this web portal, Field Office Manager.

I don't know who programmed what but the phones were labeled, SAG 32, TAIL 1, SPPRT 1, etc and as the phone travelled the website would update.

I can see the upside to this deployment, no ham licenses required (I'm sure I'm missing there).

The catch I noticed is that even with a Manual Update of the screen, the unit (phone) was about 5 min behind what that Operator was telling me about their location.

I personally would love to see an event utilizing AVMap and APRS.  I know you can packet (text) over APRS, probably even create an auto updater where the APRS highlights arrival. Such as 'TAIL 1 REST STOP 4'.

That's pretty cool about the phones.

We found it very useful. Since not everybody had the ability to message from their own rig we'd relay from those that could. One of our annual events was routed through very rural Florida so we'd put someone at one of the remote rest stations as a digipeater to extend our range.

Worth looking into for your next event.
