Manx Rally

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

Saturday afternoon was spend providing radio comms for Stages 9 & 15 of the Manx Rally. This is the second time I’ve done rally communications with Raynet on the Island.  Raynet is the radio amateur emergency network, and in this case the job was providing communications to supplement the rally radio teams.

The Yaesu FT-8900 performed really well, and despite the higher workload of having to relay communications (normally mid-stage is listen-only) it was a lot of fun, and it was an opportunity to use the radio for purposeful communications.
