2022 Boston Marathon - Initial Course Documentation and ICS-205 Released

Post by KB1KQW »

Hi James-

The initial core documentation and ICS-205 (frequency list) have been published and are now available at www.hamradioboston.org under the "Docs & Videos" tab at the upper right of the page. We have published these documents in a new directory based format - simply click on the "2022 Course Documentation" folder to access all the materials pertinent to the course.

We continue to work on the final revisions of the Course communications plan along with other key forms and materials, and those are still on schedule to be released on or around April 4. Here is the updated timeline on when additional materials are expected to be released:

April 4 - Assignments and Course Segment Documentation will be released
April 5 - Coordination Messages begin featuring regular race updates
April 11 - Final check-in details will be released
April 18 - Race Day

If you have not already done so, please try to complete the initial course segment questionnaire by the end of the day on Monday, March 28. By completing this form, you will be able to confirm your basic contact information as well as make specific requests for assignments. To access the questionnaire, click on the following link:

Finally, a few reminders from our last message:

The online forums at www.hamradioboston.org are an excellent resource for you to communicate with other course volunteers, and a great way to be involved with the marathon amateur radio communications community as we approach race day. I encourage you to sign-on and share your questions, comments, and even your race day stories over the next several weeks. If you have any difficulties accessing your forum account, please reach out to us at contact@hamradioboston.org.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns leading up to race day, either through the forum or at kb1kqw@hamradioboston.org. Also, if your availability has changed, please be sure to let us know as soon as possible by e-mailing us at contact@hamradioboston.org. In order to answer everyone’s question in time for race day, please make sure to contact us before 6:00pm on Sunday, April 17.

With only 3 weeks remaining until race day, we continue to look forward to having you all join us at this year's Marathon. Thanks again for all that you have done to support the BAA, and I look forward to working with you all on April 18!
