San Juan Island Marathon

We provided comms support for the Marathon this year, thanks to all who participated

  • Stu and Martha Salot came over from Crane Island
  • Basil and Corky came over from Lopez
  • Ed and Clare provided support from home

We tried something new using the Raspberry Pi/UDRC Setups in Basil and Corky’s vehicles to provide APRS messaging on 440 while using the Cady 2m repeater for voice coordination.

The message system allowed us to track runners better and estimate what time they would reach the next station accurately. The messages were also picked up by IGates on Vancouver Island and showed up on aprs.fi. It was fun and interesting to see how messaging worked for supporting this event.
