Greetings,

MARC Member James in Georgia puts this list together.  It includes the events we support here in Southern California.

My question is for our members in the SF Bay Area - do you folks support either of the events listed here - Marin or Pacifica?  Or any others for that matter.   If so, I might try to get a couple of folks from down our way to come up and join you in supporting these events.

Let us know and we can go from there.

Thanks,

John, N6JCB

Going Motorcycle Mobile

Volunteering as a Motorcycle Marshal for the Bike MS Atlanta Peach Ride was my gateway into Amateur Radio. I connected my AnyTone D878 to a half-wave dual-band antenna that is mounted on the grab rail of my Ducati Monster S2R, strapped the wireless PTT to the left grip and paired the radio with a Sena 20S EVO et voila! I was "Motorcycle Mobile" and hooked up to Net Control for the event. I've since invested in a Ventura Sport Rack and a low-profile mount to improve the antenna installation. We're always looking for Motorcycle Riders to volunteer for this event, and for another event in North Georgia named Spin for Kids. Our goal is to field as many Motorcycle Marshals as we can, to keep our cyclists safe while they're on the course. Please share the following links with folks who you think may be interested in:

Yes, I rode for the Devil's Slide Ride and Marin Century last year, and plan to do them again this year. But I don't organize them.

John,

Maybe you can contact them and see if they want more motorcycle (with radios) help?   We have at least one more current member up in that area.  And a couple down here that wouldn’t mind riding up there for these events.  I’m originially from the Bay Area.  Would be fun to come back up and visit.

Just a thought….

Thanks,
