Net Control  (bottom)

December 2015,

My station has changed over the years today I use an ICOM 9100 with and ALS 600 for phone, an ICOM 7200 for Digital, ICOM 2820 VHF, UHF and a CS-800 for DMR. I have recently added a DV4Mini to the shack for DSTAR and DMR. I have two dipole antennas for HF one being a Cobra Ultralite Senior 140 ft. I was able to pick up a 55ft crank up and fold over tower this fall that will be put in the spring of 2016.  VHF/UHF Antennas are on a 20ft tower with 1 vertical with a Yagi’s below 1 for UFH and a separate for VHF. I do use Ham Radio Deluxe for my log book with regular updates to both Log Book of the World and EQSL.

I am still active on VHF and UHF primarily for public service events  some of the photos are of the Net Control station for the Vermont 100 and Vermont 50 ultra marathons.  KB1MQD and I coordinate communications for both races, these events are fund raisers for Vermont Adaptive Ski and sport.  The net control station consists of 3 Icom 208h's, Icom F121 and 1 Icom 221. at the Vermont 100 we need about 40 hams to make the race safe for the runners and crews, the commercial rigs are for direct contact with local emergency services. With Karen as the  primary Net control operator and having 28 aid stations,  3 supply trucks,  two shuttle vans, at least 3 bike patrol medical personal and a few rovers net control is a two person assignment. backup for net control is my truck with 1 Icom 208,  1 Icom F121 and 1 Icom f221.
