For reference, this is the link to the race map from the initial email.
That is a pretty significant course, probably not something we can cover with VHF simplex. Pat suggested to me in passing using HF simplex, which I think would work fantastic if everyone volunteering has an HF mobile/portable.
How far north does the Cabot repeater reach? I vaguely remember a coverage map Chris (K1MHZ) made that showed it reached pretty far, but I don’t think it went past Hyde Park?
