The Ozark Trail 100 race for 2015 was another success!

Communication for Aid Stations 10 (Pigeon Roost) and

11 (Berryman) were staffed primarily by members of the

RRARS. The following photographs document some activity

at those stations.


The weather was cool but comfortable with dry, sunny

conditions during the day and a little frost overnight as the

temperature dipped to around 30 deg. F.


There were some problems with the voice repeater, but after

no good solution was found, voice traffice was moved to

simplex on the repeater output frequency of 147.300MHz.

Packet worked well because of the placement of several

digipeaters by Mark (WA0TOP) and Brian (KD0GYL) covering

the area on 145.060MHz.


After a server glitch was addressed by Ron (NA0Q) remotely

from his home, packet operation was very smooth for the rest

of the race. Packet "chat" worked extremely well between

stations 10 and 11, as well as with Ron (NA0Q) in Rolla and

Net Control at Bass River Resort using the digipeaters.
