Return to Summary
Our primary mission is eyes on the course to provide safety and back up the Marine Corps Marathon personnel. In the event of a downed cyclist or runner, contact Net Control immediately. There will be an ambulance on site for the duration of the event under the command of Top Doc.
This is a very large course. Mobile radios are preferred, but HTs may work. Be patient if you call Net Control. They could be talking with another station on Simplex that you cannot hear.
Bring a chair and a book. There will likely be long periods without any excitement.
At Start-Stop and the Water points you may want a headset - it can get very loud.
We will operate on simplex at 147.525, the normal ARES operational frequency.
