Greg, KO6TH -
Re the photos you posted from the NC Station 2021 CERA Enduro. Images 02and 03 include parts of two antenna supports. One looks like the tripod support for what would otherwise be a speaker used at an outdoor concert and the other appears to be made from 1/2- or 3/4-inch PVC irrigation pipe. Please inform me re the origins of the bases and the antennas they support. I'm the new guy here, so be gentle. 😀😀
Fun event, for sure! A lot of noise when the bikes were around (and
these were supposedly the quiet ones), but very peaceful when they
weren't there. Light breeze, periods of direct sun but mostly light
shade through the pines. Lots of dust.
Radio operations were fairly normal, trying to keep track of the riders
when the sweeps failed to show. The event course wasn't published for
security reasons, and the very few who did have access to it only had a
piece of the picture. One broken bike, and two that ran out of gas,
giving locations that had no correlation to points on the Forrest
Service map. I'm really curious about the back-story of the place
called "Rock Lobster". A few random non-participants on the trail
causing confusion. Fortunately, no injuries, and I don't think they
lost anybody (though a few apparently discovered some "alternate paths"
between a couple of the checkpoints).
I remembered to take some pictures this time. Here are some views of
the Net Control station that I operated with Aaron, K6ABJ.
