Comm Support for GA Power MS Bike Ride

Members of CARS, ARCS, and Chatham County ARES provided communications support for the 2009 Georgia Power MS Bike Ride here in Savannah today. Many of us met this morning at our normal Saturday morning breakfast spot at 0600 and then moved on to our assigned locations along the route. Steve-K4SDJ was the Net Control Operator positioned downtown near the Start/Finish Line. And the rest of us were scattered all around Savannah along the 50+ mile route. Our primary task was to provide real time information from various points along the route back to the event staff. The weather was beautiful and everything ran very smoothly. Our participation in these events provides a great public service and gives us valuable experience operating in a controlled net environment.
