Several members of the group spent there time supporting the EGB Barbury Castle Ride on 23rd August. This event required us to cover 4 checkpoints, 1 Vet Gate along with the Start/Finish. Message passing is as with most events key to the role we provide, in this event that is around the recording and tracking of the riders along this there Arrival order and times at each location. Whilst the weather was reasonable the event was a success and all riders where very appreciated for the group once again supporting the event, we look forward to working with the event organising team again next year.
Today Saturday 22nd August members of the group are out supporting the Prospect Hospice with a 10k walk from Marlborough College to Avebury Stone Circle and back. Due to the terrain we cover Comms covering the complete route., this is the cross-band link we setup to ensure good coverage. We also have a Byonics APRS tracker deployed to track the progress.
