Radio Communicator Duties &
Your primary mission as a radio operator is to provide accurate, timely, concise, and relevant information
to the Ride Director and staff through the NCS.
Remember the three most important things in radio, "Listen, Listen, and Listen".
During heavy radio traffic times
please refrain from cluttering up the air with observation type information.
There may be an emergency in progress, or higher priority traffic that needs to be passed.
If you have an emergency, announce it.
Example: "WA6EWV, with priority emergency traffic."
NCS will then clear the net
ALL OTHER STATIONS SHOULD HOLD TRAFFIC UNTIL THE EMERGENCY IS CLEARED BY NCS.
It is very useful to have GPS Latitude and Longitude handy.
If you have magnetic signs, place them on your vehicle.
If you have a fluorescent "Radio" vest, consider wearing it.
This event is a communications challenge and a good opportunity for experimenting with antennas, radios and other equipment.
Remember that the primary mission is to provide high quality communications to the ride director and staff.
PLEASE Introduce yourself to the Site Captain.
He/She is aware you are the communications link.
(A gentle reminder might be in order)
Please Advise when SAG vehicles arrive at your site. NCS will direct further movement.
Times to secure are approximate!
