Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour 2009 - Radio Support Ops Needed
2009-05-15

Looking for volunteer radio operators to assist in providing radio support for this event. The RLCT has been run annually for over 25 years by the Ottawa Bicycle Club. It involves over 2000 cyclists, riding from Carleton University to Queens University and back in one weekend, a one way distance of 177 km! Amateur radio teams from Ottawa, and the Lanark and Frontenac ARES groups have been providing support along the entire route providing vital linkages between various checkpoints, support vehicles, and to engage emergency services to deal with accidents and incidents, of which there are, unfortunately, several every year.

Operators will be deployed from Carleton University west to Blacks Corners, south of Carleton Place. All operations are done using 2 metres. Experience is not necessary.

Newcomers are welcome. Anyone interested, please contact Gordon Mein, VE3FRB at: <ve3frb@rac.ca>.

More information can be found on the Ottawa Valley Mobile Radio Club site at: <http://www.ovmrc.on.ca>
