Interesting fact #9586. 18 of KD8GTP's 33 posts mention whackers. Ignore the troll, there's a nice little button you can click to do that.
Our ARES group will be supporting the Tour de Cure next weekend. Longest race is 100 miles and the cell phone coverage is spotty. We'll have hams at the start/finish, at the rest stops and in the SAG vehicles. We'll be setting up a portable repeater to help reach some of the areas hard to activate from.
I'll be sure to get my camo gear, facepaint, tactical pens and bright green ARES vest out. I'll probably buy a bullhorn to take to just in case I need to boss the medics or whoever around.
