A new rest stop has been added in Dunnigan for the revised 100 mile route.
200 Mile Ride
100 Mile Ride
There is a new route. Instead of an out-and-back to Rumsey, the 100 mile route will follow the 200 mile route to Rest Stop 1 near Esparto, then travel north through the Dunnigan Hills to a new rest stop in Dunnigan, then travel back to Rest Stop 1, and return to Davis. View a preliminary map of the new route.
45 Mile Ride
Thursday May 16 at 1900 hrs.
The pre-ride meeting will be held at the Parking Lot behind Davis City Hall, at the corner of Russell Blvd. and B Streets. Directions to City Hall can be found HERE. We will be meeting at the west end of the parking lot, closest to A Street.
Talk-in on the K6MVR repeater, 147.000 - 136.5. SAG boxes, info packets (shirts, maps, freq plan), 900 radios, and APRS trackers should be available. Any op not able to make it can make other arrangements or pick up their stuff at Net Control on event day.
The radio plan will be updated to accommodate coverage needs for the revised 100 mile route.
Net Control will be geared towards having enough ops to handle simultaneously 2-4 channels, minimizing the time needed for field units to get a response.
A separate packet frequency with special event digipeaters located on the course and in the airplane will be used. We do not use the national 144.390 frequency due to coverage and congestion issues. Net Control will be equipped to track APRS equipped units. Yaesu location beacons are not displayed on our ancient APRS+SA program but net control will try to keep track on aprs.fi for any Yaesu beacons (VX8, FT350, etc.)
This is the roster and shifts as the positions are being filled.
Due to the high number of returning ops, an (*) will denote those that have confirmed for this year.
