IMPORTANT: C1C Repeater Update

We received word that the Weston Repeater (146.79) is experiencing intermittent issues with the transmitter. In order to partially rectify this, the repeater will be operating in CSQ mode for the marathon. If you have already programmed your radio, you will need to update your programming in order t...

Re: Check in times?

Hey Steve- Excellent catch there! The good news I have for everyone doing curbside is everyone will be able to get in. While there are no morning meetings again this year, the Red Cross is using the lot to stage and distribute supplies in the morning so we will already be there as early as 530am to ...

Re: Check in times?

Hi Everyone- On this topic, I made a few changes to the check-in times and locations today. If you are assigned from H02-H06, please plan to check-in with me curb-side at Babson College in the Knight Parking Lot. These stations will be opening prior to the first few medical tents, so we would need t...

Re: Anytone 868 codeplug

That's OK...We won't hold it against you for using an 868 :D

I know several people that have that exact same radio, and I've purchased quite a few myself. Definitely a great rig!

Re: Check in times?

Hi Jonathan- Sorry for the delay on this here - I got most of what I needed to complete this earlier today, and updated most of details in the online spreadsheet. There's just one outstanding detail I need to confirm for early stations, and that should be updated tomorrow. Since there's no morning m...

Re: Mobile apps

Thanks Patrick! The only other one I will add is the Everbridge App for Course Volunteers only. This is completely optional, but its another way for me to send a quick message out to everyone on race day such as a repeater failure. Course volunteers should have received an e-mail with instructions o...

Re: What to bring, what to expect

Hey Everyone- Sooo...the short answer for the Course is always "it depends" (I cant speak to the other segments so I'll let the other Segment Coordinators chime in here if needed). Most of the time, the stations along the course allow you to bring a small backpack with you that's clearly m...
