rain) and use your mobile radio for better coverage.

batteries) - due to the background noise bring your headphones
or ear buds.

With 8 Amateur Radio operators we were able to staff a Net
Control Station and ten positions. We first made sure that the
key rest stops and safety points/observation positions were
covered. Then we were able to do this by moving operators from
primary positions that closed early in the route to the
secondary safety/observations post.
Net Control Station
Rest Stop 1 – 12th St & Guthrie Ave
Rest Stop 2 – Denver Ave & 2nd St
Rest Stop 3 – Main St & 4th St
Med 1 – Riverside Ave. & 15th St
Turn 1 – Riverside Ave & 19th St
Check Point 3 – Riverside & Southwest Blvd
Check Point 1 – 3rd St & Lansing
Check Point 2 – Denver Ave & 7th St
Check Point 4 – 3rd St & Detroit
Check Point 5 – 1st St & Detroit
were not challenges or incidents that occurred during this
event. Then threatening stormy weather moves out of the downtown
Tulsa area and was not an issue for the event.
and post event briefing was given to all operators.
Communications went very well during the event. And due to the
cool weather the 146.940 repeater worked nicely.
Thank you to all the volunteers that took time to
come out and help with this public service project.
special note of thanks to the Emergency Manager for Okmulgee
