The Hamilton AREC Section provided safety and start communications for
the 'Bridge to
Bridge Water Ski Classic', again this year.
We used our VHF Short Term Special Purpose
repeater, set up on a hill just outside of Hamilton.
With the exception of the 'start' position at Cambridge, all our safety
boats were able to access the repeater with a handheld transceiver and
high gain antenna.
For information on becoming
an operator for this event, contact the Section Leader. The 2012 was
held on 27 & 28 October, with what might call 'variable' weather.
All went well and proved to be another very successful event, with
commendation from the organisers.
If you are able to assist with the
event, which requires our assistance on the 11th & 12th November,
or require further information, please contact the Section Leader.
